Johannes Gumpp, Auto-retrato (1646, Galeria Uffizi, Florença)
"I did not know before," continued Bingley immediately, "that you were a studier of character. It must be an amusing study."
"Yes, but intricate characters are the most amusing. They have at least that advantage."

"But people themselves alter so much, that there is something new to be observed in them for ever."
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.
