This painting is done by Jean Baptiste and its called "The Solitude". This piece has implied texture in it. The trees all the way on the left could like you can stick your hand out and touch them. It also plays with the element of space. The grass at the bottom of this painting and of the woman leaning on the tree is the foreground. The middle ground is the water and the background is the clouds. It also has linear perspective, which is in the middle of the picture where the water meets the clouds. Also, the foreground, middle ground, and background seem to overlap each other, making the tree in the middle stand out.
