Silhouette, by Man Ray

Unity: The 3 dancers create a sense of unity.
Repetition: The large black ovals, dancers (triangle skirts) repeat
Rhythm: It has symmetrical balance. It mirrors the opposite side.
Emphasis: The emphasis is towards the center because of the big black oval and the triangle shaped skirt of the dancer
Proportion: The middle of the painting is bigger then the rest. The dancer and the oval behind the dancer

  1. What a beautiful image! Simple looking at first, but you are doing a good job of breaking it down and looking at the elements that are at work here in the composition.
