Bartolomeu Velho’s model of Ptolemaic geocentrism (1568)

Although composition has always been fundamental to painting, all modern painting has been distinguished by a new way of being concerned with it. In modern art, especially in Cubism, composition comes to the forefront and finally, in consequence, abstract-real painting expresses composition itself. While in the art of the past, composition becomes real only if we abstract the representation, in the abstract-real painting composition is directly visible because it has truly abstract plastic means.
