“An amateur, nothing more, sir. Formally I loved to collect these beautiful works created by the hand of man. I sought them greedily, and ferreted them out indefatigably, and I have been able to bring together some objects of great value. There are my last souvenirs of that world which is dead to me. In my eyes, your modern artists are already old; they have two or three thousand yeas of existence; I confound them in my own mind. Masters have no age.” (Captain Nemo, ‘The man of the Seas,’ Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea)
