Spatial composition in history

The use of science and mathematics to create graceful art in the Renaissance, High Renaissance, and Baroque periods. 

The composition of this painting by van Eyck is beautiful because it moves with a triangular form. The flow of the fabric from her dress creates a realistic movement that widens at the base.
The composition of this paiting draws the eye of the audience in a clockwise motion, which almost has a storytelling affect about it.
