A review describes his painting as depicting " a magic world of romance."

Hi,
Does depicting in the above means exactly the same as describing? Thanks.

No, but you could replace "depicting" with "showing."

Thanks, GG.

To make sure, does depicting involves painting while describing writing?
You can depict or describe in writing, but I would not use "describe" with a a painting in most cases.
