Date: 1948
Creator: Shearer, Persis

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.
