1
Early Perspective Painting and the Beginnings of Projective Geometry

2
The cone of visual rays has its vertex at the eye. A perspective painting is a section of this cone by a plane.

3
Devices

4
But isnt the perspective construction something to do with vanishing points?? That seems like a different idea!

5

6
Perspective in The Tribute Money

7
The Arnolfini Marriage

8
Perspective in The Arnolfini Marriage

9
Draw a square in perspective:

10
Construction lines

11
Horizontals

12
Last construction line

13
Why is this construction correct? DE:BC = AE:AC = HE:GC But BC = GC, so DE = HE

14
A Pavimento

15
…degraded square

16
Diagonal construction

17
Orthogonals

18
Transverals

19
A degraded octagon

20
A hexagonal well

21
Heads

22

23
The flagellation of Christ

A misuse of perspective?

27
Two pencils of lines These are EQUIVALENT in projective geometry: one can be transformed into the other.

28
The Ambassadors

29
Art and optics A recent symposium considered the possibility that Renaissance perspective effects did not require geometrical construction after all! The suggestion is that artists used lenses and mirrors to project images, and trace them.
