There is a paragraph in the preface of Klopstock (German publisher) and Fuessli. Court painter to the King of Poland, he joined the Spanish court on requests from Charles III, King of Spain, paintings, early in the neoclassical style (see his Cleopatra) assured him fame and wealth, and the writings he left on the painting and the arts are full of research and subtleties. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
