The Quadro or Rectangular Format Slide 13-17: A Sunday on Le Grande Jatte - 1884. 1884-6, George Seurat (1859-91) We've seen what frames do. The next question is what shape to use? The shape of a frame is often called the format. We'll talk about the square format, and the round format. But first, the rectangular format According to Fisher, as artists turned from painting on wood panel to canvas, the use of the rectangular format increased because it is easier to cut wood into interesting shapes than to construct frames in these shapes and stretch canvas over them. Once we have decided to use a rectangle, we must decide on (1) orientation and (2) proportions of that rectangle. Portrait or Landscape By orientation, we simply mean whether the long side of the rectangle is vertical or horizontal. Of course, a landscape normally calls for a horizontal format; a portrait calls for a vertical format. Computers even use the terms portrait and landscape to distinguish between the vertical and horizontal formats.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
