The different styles of 1-point perspective

This gallery features pieces from different artistic styles around the world.

The Crypt of a Church with Two Men Sleeping, Hendrick van Steenwijck the Younger, possibly 1625, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
The 1 point perspective is visible by the pillars converging and getting scaled smaller as they are further away. The point of convergence is located at the passageway.
Marina City, Chicago, IL, Perspective Sketch, Bertrand Goldberg (American, 1913-1997), 1985, From the collection of: The Art Institute of Chicago
This sketch is very detailed and the one point perspective is noticeable by the roads on the sides.
Fountainebleau - Cour des Adieux, Eugène Atget, 1903, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
You can see the top of the building converge into a single point on the right side of the piece.
The Ideal City, Fra Carnevale, ca. 1480-1484 (Renaissance), From the collection of: The Walters Art Museum
The Ideal City is an interesting renaissance piece by it's symmetry and clear use of perspective methods.
Paris, Vert Galant, Wolfgang Lettl, 1942, From the collection of: Lettl Collection
This art features a view of the street with the perspective making the buildings look tilted on the right side.
Street Scene, Jacobus Vrel, about 1654 - 1662, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
This night scene has an amazing perspective going through the multiple buildings and it's not really noticeable at first.
Rue Vercingétorix, Paul Signac, 1885, From the collection of: Musée d’Orsay, Paris
This drawing is made with no lines and has a clear 1 point perspective going to the right.
It comes from afar, Paul Gabriël, 1887, From the collection of: The Kröller-Müller Museum
In this painting, Gabriel depicts a Dutch landscape using a single point perspective to make the scenery have a 3 dimensional feel to it.
Vienna, Dominican Church, Bernardo Bellotto, called Canaletto, 1759/1760, From the collection of: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien
One of my favorite pieces of the gallery, this painting is incredibly rich in detail and converges into a single point in the back.
Harris Maligne Lake, Sampson-Matthews Variant, Douglas Coupland, 2011, From the collection of: Vancouver Art Gallery
This piece looks very geometric and simple but at the same time it's noticeable that the artist worked for a long time on it. The 1 point perspective is noticeable in the reflection of the mountains.
47-Road, Hahn, Jeesun, 2010, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
47-Road is a surrealistic feeling piece with a convergence point beautifully added to make the scenario stand out.
38-Road, Hahn, Jee Sun, 2008, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This other Jee Sun Hahn piece depicts a set of stairs converging into a center point in the city.
26-Road, Hahn, Jeesun, 2007, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
Hahn's artwork is astonishing perspective wise and composition wise. This piece looks like a fully 3D model instead of an image.
19-Road, Hahn, Jeesun, 2006, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This is also one of my favorite pieces because it somehow utilizes 2 one point perspectives. One in the stairway and another in the converging columns.
The Garden of Eden, Thomas Cole, 1828, From the collection of: Amon Carter Museum of American Art
The Garden of Eden is a beautiful painting with a very good atmospheric perspective as well a a converging point in the mountain in the middle. The perspective draws the eye to the mountain.
