You are my most favorite artist. Though I know / very little about your work. Some of your followers I know: / Mattia Preti, who toiled so hard to so little / effect (though it was enough). Luca Giordano, involved / with some of the darkest reds ever painted, and lucent greens, / thought he had discovered the secret of the foxgloves. / But it was too late. They had already disappeared / because they had been planted in some other place.
