Albrecht Dürer also said...

Truly, art is embedded in nature; he who can extract it, has it.

I hold that the perfection of form and beauty is contained in the sum of all men.

What beauty is, I know not.

As I grew older, I realized that it was much better to insist on the genuine forms of nature, for simplicity is the greatest adornment of art.

What beauty is, I know not, though it adheres to many things.

No single man can be taken as a model for a perfect figure, for no man lives on earth who is endowed with the whole of beauty.
