Tranquility is defined as a quality or state of being, possessing the concepts of quiet, peacefulness, calmness or serenity. Tranquility, as a mental and physical concept, is the primary focus of certain religious sects, whereby tranquility of the body, thoughts and consciousness are believed to lead to the path of personal enlightenment.
The works selected represent tranquility through color, line, and composition. Each work sets a mood of tranquility for the viewer.
