  1. T.p. epigraph: [Lovely indeed the mimic works of art; / But Nature’s works far lovelier. I admire, / None more admires, the painter’s magic skill. / But imitative strokes can do no more / Than please the eye; sweet Nature ev’ry sense. / The air salubrious of her lofty hills, / The chearful fragrance of her dewy vales, / And music of her woods––no works of man / May rival these; these bespeak a power / Peculiar, and exclusively her own. Cowper.]; adapted from William Cowper, The Task (1785), bk 1, ll. 421-32.
