Raphael's Salon de Galatea, Rome (1512)

“But in your words I recognize the love that you bear me, and I tell you that to paint a beauty, I must see more beautiful women, with this condition that your Grace assists in selecting the best. But being deprived of good judges and of beautiful women I make do with a certain idea which comes into my head. Whether this has in it some artistic excellence I know not; certainly I toil to acquire it.” -- Raphael
