Mont Ventoux holds a special place in the landscape of Provence. Noticeable from afar, its summit, covered with limestone, appears to be permanently white.

Its immutable, reassuring presence contrasts with the shifting clouds that can cap its top.

In this painting, a view from the Toulourenc Valley, the large heavy cumulus seems to dwarf the mountain and the rising mist adds to the magical quality of this piece.

Perception and relationships, permanence and transience are evoked here.
