Description

At the turn of the twentieth century, Arthur Wesley Dow literally “wrote the book” on composition—and that is it! Dow’s Composition exercised a huge influence on emerging brand new artists of a century ago. A thought-provoking examination of the nature of visual representation, it remains ever-relevant to all of the visual arts.
A well-known painter and printmaker, Dow taught for a few years at Columbia University and acted as a mentor to countless young artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe. His text, presented in a workbook format, offers teachers and students a systematic method to composition. It explores the creation of freely constructed images according to harmonic relations between lines, colors, and dark and light patterns. The writer draws upon the traditions of Japanese art to talk about a theory of “flat” formal equilibrium as an integral part of pictorial creation. Practical and well-illustrated, this classic guide offers valuable insights into brand new design.
