?A picture never merely represents x, but rather represents x as a man or represents x to be a mountain, or represents the fact that x is a melon. ?What could be meant by copying a fact would be hard to grasp even if there were any such things as facts…?
[from Nelson Goodman?s Languages of Art (2nd Edition; Indianapolis and Cambridge, Hackett Publishing Company, 1984), p 9]
