Perspective: beauty is in the eye of the beholder by rashaad SWANSON
A discovery in the techniques of artists using the design principle of Perspective.
Columns were often put into churches to create an illusion of length. For example, in this case the columns here create an never ending hallway.
Bernelle was the found of using perspective and used it any many of his works of are.
Bramante was an artist who also was very well known for using perspective in his paintings. Here is a painting of him by Pietro Paoletti.
Massaccio was an ver famous artist who was known for using linear perspective. Here is his painting of Saint Andrew.
This is the famous picture the last supper. Here we see how perspective is used in the walls to again create the illusion of length.
This is the famous Mona Lisa by renewed renaissance man Leonardo Da Vinci. This painting shows aerial perspective because Da Vinci makes the background look so far away from Mona Lisa.
One might notice at first glance the instruments and devices that are in the background and skull in the foreground.
This is an example of the aerial perspective. Artist employ the aerial perspective to make the background look further than they are.
This is an very intricate picture. Here we not only see one background but we see two. Da Vinci uses aerial perspective to create depth.
This first person linear perspective is done with schomato type style.
Massaccio made an theater called teatro Olympico which columns and stage was made to made it seems like the audience was apart of the show.
This uses linear perspective with the walls as well as aerial perspective as well.
This remind me of the Abbotsugar who created pendetive arches, which creates the illusion of a higher ceiling. Abbottsugar did the ceilings for the church of Sangari.
I put this picture in the collection because it is not really first perspective or aerial perspective but it can be a view from the bottom up.
The light color used here makes the background look farther aways as well. The texture here is also similar to that of the Mona Lisa.
