the golden section

I have just come across this term the ‘golden section’ in relation to Italian art in the Renaissance. The description in AWHOA didn’t really make any great sense to me so I thought I would look on the internet to see if there was a better explanation. to be honest it doesn’t get much easier especially when you see this diagram!

More research required, apparently its something to do with the  Fibonacci sequence which i vaguely remember from school 30+ years ago but don’t remember anything about.
