-''[[De arte graphica]]'' (1668) is the title of a Latin poem by [[Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy]]. 
-The poem embodied du Fresnoy's observations on the art of [[painting]]; it may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art, with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time; the poetical merits slender enough. The Latin style is formed chiefly on [[Lucretius]] and [[Horace]].+The [[Sister Arts]] theory, as it was generally accepted in [[Fielding]]'s lifetime, had been introduced in England by Dryden's translation, in 1695, of Charles Alphonse Du Fresnoy's treatise De arte graphica (1668). Dryden prefixed to his translation (Henry Fielding and William Hogart: The Correspondences of the Arts, Peter Jan De Voogd).

In 1668 it was turned into French by [[Roger de Piles]]; [[John Dryden|Dryden]] translated the work into English prose; and a rendering into verse by [[William Mason (poet)|Mason]] followed, to which [[Sir Joshua Reynolds]] added some annotations.+
