GROUP COMPOSITIONTwo basic types can be distinguished, the additive and the integrative principle.Additive principle: The figures are placed next to one another without significantoverlapping.Integrative principle: The figures are arranged both side by side and behind oneanother, resulting overlaps are very conspicuous and are supposed to suggest a feeling ofspatial depth. But such group compositions often appear like a flat piling-up of bodieswithout conveying any spatial connection. 11.
