For neither has the evil intent of human art misled us, nor the fruitless toil of painters, a figure stained with varied colours,
For neither has the evil intent of human art misled us, nor the fruitless toil of painters, a figure stained with varied colours,
For neither has the evil intent of human art misled us, nor the fruitless toil of painters, a figure stained with varied colors,
For neither has the evil intent of human art misled us, nor the fruitless toil of painters, a figure stained with varied colors,
For neither has the evil intent of human art misled us, nor the fruitless toil of painters, a figure stained with varied colors,
Forsooth the thinking out of evil craft of men brought not us into error, neither the shadow of painture travail without fruit, an image graven by diverse colours; [Forsooth not into error in-led us the out-thinking of the evil craft of men, nor the shadow of painting travail without fruit, the graven likeness by diverse colours;]
