Geometry as the Structural Basis of Composition in Paintings by Botticelli

Geometry as the Structural Basis of Composition in Paintings by Botticelli

Date: 1942
Creator: Anderson, Kittie Blanks
Description: Fewer geometrical analyses have been made of paintings than of any other group of works of art. For this reason ten paintings by a typical Florentine painter, Botticelli, were chosen by the author in order to find out; first, the extent to which geometrical divisions were used in determining the enclosing rectangles and the main lines of the composition; second, whether or not the same geometrically determined relationships were used by Botticelli frequently enough to be considered an important determinant of his style.

The Use of the Golden Proportion in Paintings by Titian and Raphael

The Use of the Golden Proportion in Paintings by Titian and Raphael

Date: 1942
Creator: Hamilton, Barbara Ruth
Description: Paintings of Raphael and Titian were chosen for study (1) to ascertain the extent to which they used geometry, and (2) to determine, if possible, the differences and likenesses in their underlying schemas, and (3) to determine how geometrical divisions, if used, affected the character of their paintings.
