No Picture of a Martyr.  I will take my cue from Raphael, and not paint any pictures of torture.  There are enough of sublime things without its being necessary to seek sublimity where it is linked with cruelty; moreover my ambition would not be gratified in the least if I aspired to be a sublime executioner.
