Excerpt from Greuze and His Models
The Greuze girl is the fairest ﬂower that bloomed in the dawn Of democratic art - a Venus of the common people Of eighteenth-century Paris. The artist devoted all the resources of his talent to immortalise the type and the gods rewarded his devotion, like that Of another Pygmalion, by causing the sweet white ﬂesh to glow and blossom into life under the caress Of his brush. And SO she became his for ever.
