Angelo and Raffaelle.
 
Michael Angelo criticised Raffaelle very severely.   1
       
“Such was the language of this false Italian [Angelo]:
One time he christened Raphael a Pygmalion,
Swore that his maidens were composed of stone;
Swore his expressions were like owls, so tame,
His drawings, like the lamest cripple, lame;
And as for composition, he had none.”
       
Peter Pindar: Lyric Odes, viii.
   (See MICHAEL ANGELO.)   2
