Beata Beatrix by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

I paint by a set of unwritten but clearly defined rules which I could teach to any man as systematically as you could teach arithmetic…Painting is the craft of a superior carpenter. The part of a picture that is not mechanical is often trivial enough.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti, quoted by William Gaunt in The Pre-Raphaelite Dream
