22) Unity through Continuity

Continuity can be defined as a planned arrangement of various forms so that their edges are lined up.  This means there is some sort of visual relationship between two or more elements in the design.

I believe this painting represents the element of continuity.  The two girls are somewhat similar, or one does not outshine the other, while they maintain their respective differences.  There are clear lines with sections but the painting as a whole is still unified.

Also, continuity can be exhibited among two separate pieces. 

These two paintings by Monet exhibit continuity as well.  We can see a clear relationship in the distinct brush strokes the artist uses and the style they represent (impressionism). There is also a connection in theme and content (floral and natural).
