Oh, there are so many examples of great imagery in this book! (One of my favorites, obviously.) If I had to limit myself to two, however, I'd say chapter 52, in which the narrator describes Strickland's Tahiti paradise, and chapter 57, where he describes the final painting he sees by Strickland, the one given to the doctor. The first evokes Eden; the second pure visual art, via words.
