In art, the term structure pertains to the arrangement and mutual relation of the part of the body, object or composition. Structure refers to the relation of parts, to the relative proportions of the component elements. It also refers to the underlying skeleton which supports the whole figure, giving form to flesh. It is that which gives the forms their particular nature or character.

Structure is the underlying and connected understructure that holds up the figure, and the same underlying connection can be applied to a picture. The units interlock to create a stable totality. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
