Line- Implied

Implied Line

The Cardsharps With the Ace of Clubs,
Georges de La Tour,
1620

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardsharps_(Caravaggio)

This painting shows implied line with the mans arm being in alignment with the wine and then the woman’s shoulder flowing to the other woman’s hand. This makes an implied arch in the center of the painting.
