See Hipple, The Beautiful, the Sublime, and the Picturesque, p. 139: "The entire course of study which Reynolds lays out for the student is a course in imitation, first of the object set before him, then of the manner of great workers in the art, then (while imitation of artists is not discontinued) of the abundance of nature itself.This progressive broadening of the object and manner of imitation culminates in the formation of a mind adequate to all times and all occasions."
