          In this painting, he has arrived at a carefully integrated composition of  countryside and mountain.  He also incorporates the stone bridge at the  center, which, without the well conceived total structure of the painting, might have divided it in two.

          The bridge or viaduct prevents our gaze from rushing unchecked into the distance.

          The solidity of structure and treatment of nature gives the landscape  a feeling of timelessness — no ripples to mar the surface, no wind to  stir the trees.
