Two Deaths And Only One Life

Piero do Cosimo (1462-1521) - The Death of Procris, c. 1500

'If I was strange, and strange were my figures,
Such strangeness is a source both of grace and art;
And whoever adds strangeness here and there to his style,
Gives life, force and spirit to his paintings.'

(Piero di Cosimo's epitaph.)
