Please can you identify the speaker in the following lines and also tell meaning?

2) “More matter less art”

  1. Ophelia states these lines to Polonius, her father. When she tells him that she did as he said and did not respond to Hamlet’s advances.
  2. Queen says this line, when she talks to Polonius. In fact, she uses less words so that to express directly and to the point.
