Angelo and Raffaelle

Michael Angelo criticised Raffaelle very severely.

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.)
