Morning beauty. The “vertical crescendo” design principle.
“Few things in design are finer or more elevated in feeling than William Blake’s design of the Morning Stars singing together, in the series of the Book of Job, yet it is little more than a vertical arrangement of figures with uplifted and intercrossing arms. The linear plan gives the main impetus to the expressiveness of the design, and is the basis of the beauty, which culminates in the rapture of the fresh youthful faces.”
~ Walter Crane Line And Form, 1900.
