The Tableau

This refers to pictures or photographs where characters are arranged using dramatic effect so they are totally absorbed in the peice and not aware of the viewer.

 

artists who use this technique are such as William Hogarth, Eugene Decroix, Jeff Wall, Tom Hunter, Daesung Lee and Chris Nash

 

William Hogarth uses this in his series of paintings “modern moral series, Marriage a la mode”   in the painting “the marriage settlement it shows the subjects in conversation about the marriage of two children without any one of them looking towards the painter.
