Study Notes

Linear or point-projection perspective is a form of graphical projection where the projection lines converge to one or more points. It is an approximate representation of an image as seen by the eye. Perspective drawing is useful for representing a three-dimensional scene in a two-dimensional medium, like paper. Objects appear smaller as their distance from the observer increases, and they are subject to foreshortening. Italian Renaissance painters and architects studied linear perspective, wrote treatises on it, and incorporated it into their artworks. Perspective works by representing the light that passes from a scene through an imaginary rectangle (the picture plane), to the viewer's eye. One-point, two-point, three-point, and curvilinear perspective can be used. Chinese artists made use of oblique projection from the first or second century until the 18th century. Soon after Filippo Brunelleschi conducted a series of experiments between 1415 and 1420, nearly every artist in Florence and in Italy used geometrical perspective in their paintings and sculpture. Perspective images are created with reference to a particular center of vision for the picture plane.
