Linear Forms


A term for artworks that foreground straight lines and discrete shapes as if drawn with a ruler, without indication of the artist’s hand. While lines demonstrating a mathematical precision and edge can be found in figurative works emphasizing linear perspective as well as classical architecture, such forms are generally found in abstract art, design, and architecture. Classic examples include paintings by Piet Mondrian or Josef Albers, Donald Judd's Minimalist sculptures, or Bauhaus architecture.
