When a boy, Giotto, the Florentine Artist, was sent to keep sheep in the fields, where he used to amuse himself with drawing his flock after life, upon the rocks, with charred sticks for pencils. Cimabue, traveling that way, found him at this work, and thence conceived so good an opinion of his genius, that he prevailed with his father to let him go to Florence and be brought up under him. [P. 14.]
