And then, in the act of creating man, He fashioned the first forms of painting and sculpture in the sublime grace of created things. It is undeniable that from man, as from a perfect model, statues and pieces of sculpture and the challenges of pose and contour were first derived, and for the first paintings, whatever they may have been, the ideas of softness and unity and the clashing harmony made by light and shadow were derived from the same source.'
