Once artists learn the canon of proportion, they can experiment with it to develop their own artistic style and convey their ideas. In Girl in a Sailor’s Blouse, Amedeo Modigliani elongates his subject’s features. Henri Matisse uses color and shape to emphasize parts of his composition in The Romanian Blouse. In The Journalists, Hannah Höch distorts her figures to make a statement about German society after World War I.
