Views in the seven ionian islands

'A rock is certainly a stable entity. And yet one must represent it like a presence as mobile as breath, as fluid as water. This is not easily expressed in words, and the painter must feel it. The ancients called mountains 'the roots of clouds', so as to say that these mountains, with their tormented or joyful, fantastic or peaceful aspects, seem to change their physiognomy at every moment. One sees by this that the spirit of the mountain is entirely one of mobility and fluidity.' (Francois Cheng, Souffle-Esprit: Textes theoriques sur l'art pictural)
