In the final sentence why is dépeignait not given as an alternative verb. It seems more precise than représentait.

Bonjour Angela,

In French, 'dépeindre' is used to describe somebody or something in writing or when talking but not about a visual description, i.e. a painting.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
