William Blake (1757–1827).  The Poetical Works.  1908.
 
On Art and Artists
Raphael, sublime, majestic, graceful, wise
 
XXVIII
RAPHAEL, sublime, majestic, graceful, wise—
His executive power must I despise?
Rubens, low, vulgar, stupid, ignorant—
His power of execution I must grant,
Learn the laborious stumble of a fool!        5
And from an idiot’s action form my rule?—
Go, send your Children to the Slobbering School!
