Sample text

Both are white; but both engraved so as to look thoroughly round. 54. All the other great chiaroscurists whom I named to you— Reynolds, Velasquez, and Titian—approached their shadow also on the safe side—from Venice: they always think of color first. But Turner had to work his way out of the dark Greek school up to Venice; he always thinks of his shadow first; and it held him in some degree fatally to the end. Those pictures which you all laughed at were not what you fancied, mad endeavors for color; they were agonizing Greek efforts to get light.

The other is a mythological subject of deeper meaning, the death of Procris. [Footnote 13: Ovid, “Metamorphoses, “ XI. 769. ] 43 Lectures on Landscape ÆSACUS AND HESPERIE. From the painting by Turner. 94. I just now referred to the landscape by John Bellini in the National Gallery as one of the six best existing of the purist school, being wholly felicitous and enjoyable.
