We may frankly admit that certain people deceive themselves who apply the title 
"a good master" to a painter who can only do the head or the figure well. Surely 
it is no great achievement if by studying one thing only during his whole 
lifetime he attain to some degree of excellence therein! But since, as we know, 
painting embraces and contains within itself all the things which nature 
produces or which result from the fortuitous actions of men, and in short 
whatever can be comprehended by the eyes, it would seem to me that he is but a 
poor master who makes only a single figure well.
