"'Vilia Miretur Vulgus;"
'Vilia miretur vulgus; mihi flavus Apollo Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua.'
Venus and Adonis
"Holding Their Course to Paphos, Where Their Queen, Means to Immure Herself and Not Be Seen."
Thus weary of the world, away she hies, And yokes her silver doves; by whose swift aid Their mistress mounted through the empty skies In her light chariot quickly is convey'd; Holding their course to Paphos, where their queen Means to immure herself and not be seen.
Venus and Adonis
1553, oil on canvas, Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain
