Angelo and Raffaelle

.

Michael Angelo criticised Raffaelle very severely.

“Such was the language of this false Italian [Angelo]:

One time he christened Raphael a Pygmalion,

Swore that his maidens were composed of stone;

Swore his expressions were like owls, so tame,

His drawings, like the lamest cripple, lame;

And as for composition, he had none.”


Peter Pindar: Lyric Odes, viii.
