Excerpt from Modern Painters, Vol. 1 of 5: Of General Principles and of Truth
Of the old masters I have spoken with far greater freedom; but let it be remembered that only a portion of the work is now presented to the public, and it must not be supposed, because in that particular portion, and with reference to particular excellencies, I have spoken in constant depreciation, that I have no feeling of other excellencies of which cognizance can only be taken in future parts of the work. Let me not be understood to mean more than I have said, nor be made responsible for conclusions when I have only stated facts. I have said that the old masters did not give the truth of Nat ure; if the reader chooses, thence, to infer that they were not masters at all, it is his conclusion, not mine.
