Bird's Eye Views.  Here torrents rush from every side into a ravine: their movement is so swift and stormy, and carries the eye along so quickly, that the bare or wooded mountain slopes around seem not to sink down but to fly down.  We are in an agonised tension at the sight, as if behind all this were hidden some hostile element, before which all must fly, and against which the abyss alone gave protection.  This landscape cannot be painted, unless we hover above it like a bird in the open air.  Here for once the so called bird's eye view is not an artistic caprice, but the sole possibility.
