Subject(s): Paintings & Painters


Even as Apelles could not paint Campaspes face aright,
Because Campaspes sun-bright eyes did dimme Apelles sight:
Even so, amazed at her sight, her sight, all sights excelling,
Like Nyobe the Painter stoode, her sight his sight expelling,
Thus Art and Nature did contend, who should the Victor bee,
Till Art by Nature was supprest, as all the worlde may see.
