                 The Best Artist  最佳画师

   A despotic sultan who was blind in one eye invited three artists to paint his picture.

  “If you do a bad portrait, I will punish you,” he warned, “ but if you do a good one I will reward you. Now start!”

  有一个残暴的苏丹,是独眼龙,请来三位画家来为他画像。

 “如果你们画得不好,我就惩罚你们。”他警告说,“可如果你们画得好,我会赏你们的。现在就画!”

   The first artist produced a picture that showed the sultan as he was: blind in one eye.The sultan had him executed for showing disrespect to his monarch.

   第一位画家画的画像和苏丹本人一模一样:一只眼瞎。苏丹命人将他处死,罪名是犯上蔑君。

   The second artist showed him with both eyes intact.The sultan had him flogged for trying to flatter him.
   The third artist drew him in profile, showing only his good eye.The sultan, pleased, rewarded him with gold and honours.

   第二位画家把他的两只眼睛画成没有任何毛病,结果遭受鞭笞之刑,罪名是谄上媚君。

   第三位画家画了苏丹的侧面像,只画出了他的那只好眼。苏丹很高兴,奖给他黄金,并授予他各种殊荣。
