“If one wants to gain honor in this most noble part of art . . . benefit can be derived from the depiction of your own passions, at best in front of a mirror, where you are simultaneously the performer and the beholder. But here a poetic spirit is necessary in order to imagine oneself in another's place.”—Samuel van Hoogstraten (Rembrandt's pupil)1(p20)
