Painting aims at retaining the view. The fact that this cannotif only in partswork in its presentation or that a definite focusing is impossible is owed to time and circumstances. Just like a mirror with reflection and view at the same time. If blinding prevents from recognising a motif. What is perspective, what is reflection if stable aspects and weak states of the picture, great pathos and tender effects permeate? Is this responsible for the feeling of losing ground or the dizziness we experience while looking at it?
