no monster exists that cannot be made pleasing through art” is a dictum by Boileau.

Il n'est point de serpent ni de monstre odieux,
Qui par l'art imité ne puisse plaire aux yeux,
--L'Art poétique (1674)
There is no monster bred beneath the sky,
But, well-disposed by art, may please the eye
--tr. via Albert Stanburrough Cook
