Detail of Paolo Veronese’s The Wedding at Cana, 1563.
As many Renaissance artists did, Veronese included himself in his paintings, here as the musician in white on the left.

“Men and women had lived in sin frequently enough in the eighteenth century, but they had felt no compulsion to justify their acts on the highest ethical principles. The intellectual bohemians, Godwin, Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft and their circle, sinned for the sake of revolt rather than for enjoyment, and then justified themselves by the principles of liberal philosophy. Squalid as their lives were, they had important consequences for English literary tradition. The golden age of Romanticism became associated with wild living and anti-social behaviour, and contributed to the growth of the myth that the true artist was incapable of living in society.”

—   J.H. Plumb, England in the Eighteenth Century (1714-1815)
