Who is Eupompus?

Eupompus (Ancient Greek: Εὔπομπος) was the founder of the good Sicyonic scholarly of painting, which flourished in the 4th century BC at Sicyon in Ancient Greece. He was eclipsed by his successors, and is chiefly remembered for the advice which he is said to have resolution to Lysippus: to follow natural world rather than any master.

Eupompus was succeeded as head of the Sicyonic speculative by Pamphilus of Amphipolis, teacher of Apelles.

Ben Jonson makes the cryptic reference, in his Discoveries: “Eupompus gave it (art) splendour by numbers and extra elegancies.”Aldous Huxley wrote a fanciful bank account for his first collection, ‘Limbo’, in which a advanced scholar tracks by the side of the checking account behind the remark.
