Wilson_Aaron perspective

I chose to make a collection on the subject of perspective view and the different techniques used to achieve it.

Interior from Amaliegade. Captain Carl Ludvig Bendz standing and Dr. Jacob Christian Bendz seated, Wilhelm Bendz, Ca. 1829, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
It is tough to see it at first but this painting does a good job at using perspective by using a vanishing point about where the door is. You can see the invisible vanishing point and lines connecting objects in the room; the lines in the ceiling and floor, and on the sesk.
Interior of the Church of St. Lawrence (Groote Kerk or Great Church) in Alkmaar, 1661, Pieter Janszoon Saenredam, 1661, From the collection of: Albertina
The perspective in the painting of this gothic style cathedral is clearly defined by the walls and pillars. The pointed arches are also aligned with the vanishing point.
Architectural Fantasy, 1760, Hubert Robert, 1760, From the collection of: Albertina
The perspective is defined differently in this painting because it uses 2 vanishing points which would both lay well off the left and right sides of the painting. The left one is more clearly defined by the direction of the top and bottom edges of the wall. the right one is somewhat more difficult to see but it lines up the bottom edges of the arches as well as the top edges of the temple.
Cypress Avenue at the Villa d`Este in Tivoli, 1774, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, 1774, From the collection of: Albertina
In the perspective of this painting it is much easier to see where the vanishing point would be since it is not covered up by any other objects in the scene. Other than the direction of the sidewalk lines and the direction of the edges of the bushes being so defined, then it would be much more difficult to see the direction of the perspective
View of the Alservorstadt, 1872, Rudolf von Alt, 1872, From the collection of: Albertina
This painting portrays as if it is the perspective view of the woman in the window looking down upon the streets. Not only does this painting have an interesting birds eye view of the activity in the streets below, but it also has great proportion in the angle of the rooftops of the building across the street.
View through a Baroque Colonnade into a Garden, 1760-1768, Antonio Canal, called Canaletto, 1760-1768, From the collection of: Albertina
In my personal perspective this painting does and awesome job at using perspective view in the garden background, and yet it is still not very reliant on the background to be very detailed.
The Porta Portello with the Brenta Canal in Padua, 1740-1743, Antonio Canal, called Canaletto, 1740-1743, From the collection of: Albertina
I really like how the artist took advantage of the canal walls to make a good perspective and didn't use it on the outside part of the wall closer too us but instead made a hill up to the wall, but used the wall to give us perspective of how deep the hill goes back.
A the victualler's when there is no fishing, Peder Severin Krøyer, 1882, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
The artist uses the bar in this painting to give the illusion of a deep room of a bunch of people that are possibly very close in conversation about fishing. The fact that there are 3 men that are standing close together leaning up against the bar but facing away tells a story about people that have similar interests that come to the same place to converse.
Osteria in Ravello., Peder Severin Krøyer, 1890, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
This scene looks like another bar painting that is using the bar in conjunction with the doorway to give the room depth and an interesting story. Aparently the bar tender is very interested in what the men across the room are saying.
View of the Church of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura, Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, 1815, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
The pillars in this painting caught my attention because I thought it was very interesting that they are sticking out much past the top floor. I like how much detail is put into the pillars and that they really focus your attention on the figure praying in the middle.
The river and the harbour at Frederiksværk, Laurits Andersen Ring, 1900, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
Although straight lines aren't used in the perspective of this picture. There is a very good detailed perspective view of the river in the painting landscape,
Loggia in Ravello, Peder Severin Krøyer, 1890, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
This post impressionist type photo is my favorite painting that I found because the perspective uses the pillars being closer together on the back edges to indicate a curved path way behind the stairs.
View from the Trekroner Battery with Copenhagen in the distance, Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, 1836, From the collection of: The Hirschsprung Collection
The perspective in this painting is not very strongly defined other than the 2 edges of the dock. The focus doesn't seem to actually bee on the water or the ships in the water but the light post in the middle of the image.
El Coloso de Rodas, Antonio Muñoz Degraín, 1914, From the collection of: Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando
The use of perspective in this picture isn't actually achieved just through the lines of the building but also the fact that the picture uses a statue in the background and the foreground facing the same direction.
Valdemar Atterdag Holding Visby to Ransom, 1361, Carl Gustaf Hellqvist, 1882, From the collection of: Nationalmuseum Sweden
The artist uses a very amazing technique to make the people in the foreground look like the action is the same way all the way down the street behind them. The scene reminds me of a video game from the "Assassins Creed" series.
