Perspectives

A Special Collection of Artists' Manuals on Perspective and Human Proportion
September 4, 2019

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. The effort to scientifically reconstruct human vision in two dimensions is a genuine Renaissance phenomenon. Our video explores an entire collection of Renaissance books focused on the art of perspective, which Dr. Jörn Günther has gathered over many years.
