[Suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] …in the same manner the great abundance of a full and furtile matter in painting appears to be nothing else but a mean bunch of several angry and wildy dispersed figures, unless they are assembled by means of a capable art of composing and combined in the composition of the whole painting.
