The paintings by Vecellio Tiziano, known as Titian (1490-1576)
"Carew" is pronounced "Carey" - except when he's the hero of "The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God."
It's one of the vagaries of English pronunciation that drives foreign students crazy, such as Cholmondeley (chum-lee), Featherstonehaugh (fan-shore) or Raymond Luxury Yacht (throat-wobbler-mangrove).
Okay, I confess that last one was from Monty Python.
There's a story that a Frenchman came to England to learn the language. He saw a poster outside a theatre which read, "Hamlet, pronounced Success" which caused him the abandon the idea and return to his native France. ("Pronounced" has another meaning - it can mean "outstanding" or "conspicuous")
He that loves a rosy cheek,
Or a coral lip admires,
Or from star-like eyes doth seek
Fuel to maintain his fires:
As old Time makes these decay,
So his flames must waste away.
But a smooth and steadfast mind,
Gentle thoughts, and calm desires,
Hearts with equal love combined,
Kindle never-dying fires:
Where these are not, I despise
Lovely cheeks or lips or eyes.
