A CONTRAST, BETWEEN TWO EMINENT DIVINES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Two diff'rent painters, artists in their way
Last Line: That dress could give—but law has hit her face.
Subject(s): Hervey, James (1714-1758); Law, William (1686-1761) .; Paintings & Painters


TWO diff'rent painters, artists in their way,
Have drawn religion in her full display;
To both she sat—one gaz'd at her all o'er;
The other fix'd upon her features more:
Hervey has figur'd her with ev'ry grace
That dress could give—but Law has hit her face.
