Philosopher's Landscape; or Diogenes throwing away his Cup, (painting)
Brown, G. L.
Rosa (copy after)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 168
Copied by G.L. Brown, at the Pitti Palace, Florence, from the original, by Salvator Rosa, who has given his own portrait in the figure talking with Diogenes. (Page 165, Ancient Apothegems, No. 138.) Diogenes happening to see a boy drink out of the hollow of his hand, said: "This boy in point of frugality, has got the better of me; whereas I carry about with me an unnecessary cup:" and saying thus, he pulled his wooden cup out of his bag, and threw it away; adding, "I was ignorant that nature had provided for us, even in this respect also." [P. 7.]
