Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: PAINTING & more

My Word of the Day

PAINTING (PAI’NTING) n.s.[from paint.]1. The art of representing objects by delineation and colours.

If painting be acknowledged for an art, it follows that no arts are without their precepts. Dryden.

’Tis in life as ’tis in painting, Much may be right, yet much be wanting. Prior.2. Picture; the painted resemblance.

This is the very painting of your fear;This is the air-drawn dagger which you said, Led you to Duncan. Shakesp. Macbeth.

Painting is welcome;The painting is almost the natural man:For since dishonour trafficks with man’s nature, He is but outside: pencil’d figures are Ev’n such as they give out. Shakesp. Timon of Athens.3. Colours laid on.

If any such be here That love this painting, wherein you see me smear’d, Let him express his disposition, Shakesp. Coriolanus.
