Mastering Composition with the Canon of Design-Cot-TheMet

“Springtime” by Pierre-Auguste Cot 1800’s. I took this picture in The Met during my first visit there. In the 1800’s section I could feel myself getting excited…so many of my favorites all in a row. To the right of this is Bougouereau’s “Nymphs and Satyr” painting!

7/365

How would you possibly compose the painting above as Pierre Aguste Cot did in his “Springtime” painting? Well, below I break down the design elements he uses to make this masterful composition (see Day 240). Later in the 365 I will analyze this painting and show you all of his tricks.
