uring twelve years of research, three painters have emerged from the main stream
. The practice of sacred
geometry shows a great unity in the time as well as in the space. The figures combine their properties with a mathematical logic, so it would be difficult
to escape to their dogmas. The triangle 3-4-5 is dimensionally stable and incorruptible. It doesn't invite the student to inspirational drifts !
From the early neolithic up to the Renaissance, not a single major work of art (painting and architecture) escapes to the process of creation involving
the composition with this « geometry with eyes ». As we saw before, there is no serious publication about it : the main properties are missing in the
contemporary writings. Therefore, it was impossible to identify into the works what we ignored totally.
It becomes ridiculous to argue that there are other approaches than mathematics when we discover that these skills are everywhere in the works.
A so great effort can not be considered as the frivolous hobby of the authors. The History of art imposes a dogma that we could resume as :
« Art is subjective because it is subjective; for proof it is subjective », but a lot of people feel nervous in front of that. If the artists imply
their subjectivity in their creation, the historians should not usurp their place.
The Musicology requires very strong competencies in the domain of musical structures, and these skills are comparable to the ones of geometry.
This type of investigation is not a choice : it is a necessity.
This framework being laid, we can address the greatest masters of Sacred Geometry. The level of their practice is worthy of the aerospace.
They are distinguished in particular by their composition keys.
