Perspectives

Paperback Brochure, 2019
Paperback

A Special Collection of Artists' Manuals on Perspective and Human Proportion.

 

Perspective is the art of representing the world in the way the human eye perceives it. The questions of visual perception and spatial arrangement have preoccupied artists for centuries and continue to be influential. It seems likely that the efforts to scientifically reconstruct human vision on two-dimensional surfaces are a genuine Renaissance phenomenon. This catalogue presents 15 very early and extremely rare treatises, handbooks and model books on perspective, proportion and geometric design.
