THE SECOND VOLUME.
On the removal of the Royal Academy to Somerset-Place.
- The advantages to society from cultivating intellectual
Sculpture : Has but one style. - Its objects, form, and cha-
racter.-Ineffectual attempts of the modern Sculptors to
improve the art.-Ill effects of modern dress in Sculp-
Genius : Consists principally in the comprehension of A
Whole; in taking general ideas only ...
Particular methods of study of little consequence -
the art can be taught. — Love of method often a love of
idleness. — Pittori improvvisatori apt to be careless and
incorrect; seldom original and striking : - This proceeds
from their not studying the works of other masters
Art not merely imitation, but under the direction of the
Imagination.-In what manner Poetry, Painting, Acting,
Gardening, and Architecture, depart from Nature
