Renaissance Perspective

The contained works are a compilation of Renaissance one-point perspective drawings. The Renaissance was a time after the Middle Ages in Europe, especially Italy in which people took a renewed interest in themselves and the arts. One advancement made during this time was the invention of one-point perspective drawing which is the process of giving perspective to a piece of art through the use of a vanishing point, horizon, and orthogonal lines. Because of this advancement, artists were able to give a great amount of realism to their work that was impossible in the Dark Ages. From scenes of church processions to Ideal Cities to possible play set sketches, this gallery contains a little bit of every kind of perspective drwaing that made the Renaissance so great.
