Notes

Summary:
The great depth is built up in broad layers intricately fitted and interlocked, without an apparent constructive scheme. Towards us these layers become more and more diagonal; the diverging lines in the foreground seem a vague refiection of the mountain's form. These diagonals are not perspective lines leading to the peak, but, conduct us far to the side where the mountain slope begins; they are prolonged in a limb hanging from the tree. It is this contrast of movements, of the marginal and centered, of symmetry and unbalance, that gives the immense aspect of drama to the scene. Yet the painting is a deep harmony, built with a wonderful finesse.
