ALBRECHT DURER: Geometry Of The Canvas
The Master artists were meticulous about the layout and symmetry of their precious Art on canvas. It had to be aligned to pure principle and ratios of the divine, elegant proportions and mystical dimensions. Albrecht Durer ensured that the invisible components of his masterpieces were indeed based upon sacred cosmometry, in the same way his teacher and teacher’s teachers had taught him. Every hand mudra, every staring of an eye, every curl of hair was calculated. This was their Genius Mind, despite there being foresight and strict mathematics necessary to get the perspective required, there was also the essential element of wild abandon, intuition and free flow. They needed the underpinning grid to fly over.
