Unione is the precise point where the contours, outlines and edges of objects and space meet and blend in a painting, yet remain perceptible to the viewer. They are not too blurred and they are not too bold. Unione is the point where the transition between objects and space is still noticeable. Raphael used this mode in his paintings, take a look at his portrait of Pope Julius II to see how he worked it into his compositions.
