Raphael:
For what is an artist in this world but a servant, a lackey for the rich and powerful? Before we even begin to work, to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron, a rich man of affairs, or a merchant, or a prince or... a Pope. We must bow, fawn, kiss hands to be able to do the things we must do or die.
[chuckles]

Raphael:
We are harlots always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty.
Michelangelo:
If it comes to that, I won't be an artist.
Raphael:
[scoffs]
You'll always be an artist. You have no choice.

00:00:02.297 --> 00:00:05.891
[Laughs] For what is an artist in this world, but a servant...
00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:08.025
a lackey for the rich and powerful?
00:00:08.135 --> 00:00:12.663
Before we even begin to work to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron...
00:00:12.773 --> 00:00:17.836
a rich man of affairs, or a merchant or a prince or a pope.
00:00:17.945 --> 00:00:21.176
We must bow, fawn, kiss hands...
00:00:21.282 --> 00:00:25.719
to be able to do the things we must do or die.
00:00:25.082 --> 00:00:28.084
[Chuckles] We are harlots...
00:00:28.189 --> 00:00:31.001
always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty.
00:00:31.158 --> 00:00:33.353
If it comes to that, I won't be an artist.
00:00:33.461 --> 00:00:35.793
[Scoffs] You'll always be an artist. You have no choice.
00:00:58.452 --> 00:01:00.545
Are you really so blind?
00:01:00.655 --> 00:01:02.623
Why do you think he wanted to show the ceiling...
00:01:02.723 --> 00:01:04.782
because he was ashamed of it?
00:01:04.892 --> 00:01:06.086
Ashamed?
00:01:06.961 --> 00:01:10.001
Of course not. What a stupid thing to say. He was proud of it.
00:01:10.131 --> 00:01:12.964
So, he insulted you by showing it to the world?
00:01:13.993 --> 00:01:15.627
- Half-finished. - Half-finished, yes.
00:01:15.736 --> 00:01:19.194
Listen, he rode off in an almost hopeless cause...
00:01:19.307 --> 00:01:22.572
knowing that he might never live to see the fresco finished.
00:01:22.001 --> 00:01:25.703
Are you the only one in Rome who doesn't know that?
00:01:25.813 --> 00:01:28.839
Maybe. I don't pay attention to these...
