CHARACTER AND NATURE OF LINES
If we apply these observations to the shapes of frames, the square, made of four equal lines, all having the same "swiftness" and checking one another alike, gives the effect of something stationary, fixed.
The four lines have neutralized one another, have cre ated a certain monotony for themselves, and are of no interest to us except that they are useful in forming a space, and because of their neutral quality they direct all attention into the space they form. A picture in such a frame has the advantage of effecting a com plete concentration upon itself.
