Renaissance Perspective

These works were created during the Art Renaissance period. It was a time of humanist ideas using one-point perspective. One-point perspective is creating a 3-D object by using a vanishing point and a horizon line. This relates to the Renaissance period because the artists wanted realistic pictures. These are things that happened in real life or actual buildings.                                     During the Renaissance artists focused more on realistic works and mathematical approaches.  This is when the artists pulled away from fiction things and wanted to portray real events and lifestyles. These works all used a vanishing point and the lines were parallel to the vanishing point and created one-point perspective. The receding lines in one-point perspective allow the eye to move from foreground to middle ground to background.
