Lot Essay

First: single lines split up the canvas so that the composition falls apart into separate planes and the painting becomes a self-contained unit. Second: single lines make the composition static. Third: the double-line or a multiplicity of lines renders 'a continuity of related and inter-related rhythm in space' possible, which makes the composition dynamic instead of static. (Marlow Moss quoted in L. Howarth, Marlow Moss (1889-1958), Plymouth 2008, p. 180)
