One of the questions that has arisen in a forum discussion
about rhythm in a composition
is where this is to be found in the Mona Lisa
. Renzo says:
"In sound, Rhythm is marked by orderly repetition of a beat that moves the music forward in time. When you think of rhythm in visual and spatial terms, it is not difficult to see it expressed in paintings that have a clear left to right horizontal composition. ... You can even see it when the pattern is vertical. But where is the Rhythm in the Mona Lisa?"
I see it in the gentle curves cascading down the composition. But it's a very gentle rhythm, not a strong, foot-tapping beat. Do you see any? Join the conversation here...
