The story of Shape Shifters & Pattern Play

Recognising the shapes that we see helps to improve our art skills. By organising geometric and organic shapes together, we can draw almost anything! Most great artists use shapes and pattern to create their compositions. In this box we look at Henri Matisse and his beautiful freeform paper-cuts, at Sonia Delaunay and her fascinating circles, and finally at Anni Albers and her mesmerising woven art pieces, currently on exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.
