Euphranor

(yo͞ofrā`nər), fl. 364 B.C., Greek painter and sculptor from Corinth. His most famous paintings were in the Stoa of Zeus at Athens—A Cavalry Charge between the Athenians and Boeotians at Mantinea and Theseus on one wall and the 12 great gods on the opposite. His statues, executed in metal or marble, were praised by Pliny for symmetry and dignity. Among them were Paris and Leto with Apollo and Artemis. A nude male statue in bronze, found in a sunken ship off Antikíthira (Antikythera), has been identified by some scholars as his Paris (Athens).

I'd like to begin by noting the uncanny resemblance between Cather-ine's and my interest in the education of the sentiments and the con-structed conversation between a young man named Euphranor and an older man named Theocles described in an essay written by Moses Mendelssohn entitled "On Sentiments.
Undoubtedly proponents of liberal Jewish confessionalism would do well to have Euphranor as their spokesman but is he right regarding the distance between beauty and truth?

or Parrhasius, or Aetion, or Euphranor to paint it, but since it is impossible nowadays to find anyone so excellent and so thoroughly master of his craft, I shall show you the picture as best I can in unembellished prose.

I am agnostic on the relationship of truth and beauty, at least as Mendelssohn presents it: his Euphranor, like Jane Austen's Marianne Dashwood or Kierkegaard's aesthete in Either/Or, is an aesthetic consumer, not a producer, and has only the dimmest sense of the role of judgment in artistic creation.

5) It is hard to imagine that space was a factor; and an edition prepared to offer three versions of Euphranor, each one as "lifeless and unrealized" as the others, ought surely not to have baulked at offering four or five Rubaiyats.
