--Mary Pinchot Meyer
The tondo--or circular canvas--was a favorite format for Mary Pinchot Meyer. Half Light is divided into precise quadrants. Their colors alternate in tone and hue, with pale lavender and blue contrasting crisply with earthy olive green and brown.
Meyer used thinned paint to penetrate the fibers of the canvas, thus melding color with form. She noted that there are no lines in her paintings, only edges "where one color stops and another starts." The artist did, however, draw two tiny dots in this composition. Can you find them?
