Pattern as a design principle can be simply defined as repetition of a shape or form within a work. The separating interval may be regular or changing, but such a repetition creates a rhythm. These patterns are never accidental. They play an outstanding role in communicating the meaning of the work.
André Derain, Barque au Port de Collioure 1905
