“It is from knowing what are the general feelings and passions of mankind, that we acquire a true idea of what imagination is.” - Sir Joshua Reynolds
“A picture should please at first sight, and appear to invite the spectator’s attention: if on the contrary the general effect offends they eye, a second view is not always sought, whatever more substantial and intrinsic merit it may possess.
Perhaps no apology ought to be received for offenses committed against the vehicle (whether it be the organ of seeing or of hearing) by which our pleasures are conveyed to the mind. We must take care that the eye be not perplexed and distracted by a confusion of equal parts, or equal lights, or offended by an inharmonious mixture of colors, as we should guard against offending the ear by inharmonious sounds." -Reynolds
