Study for the Adoration of the Magi, by Leonardo da Vinci

Linear Perspective 1

This class addresses theoretical and applied perspective in order to build spatial environments within artworks. Artificial perspective is applied in one-point, two-point and three-point modes. Observational tactics of sighting are applied to on-site perspective problems, including shadows and reflections. Additionally, historical theories on perspective are addressed with a particular focus on methods of representation and visual phenomena. Students are encouraged to examine issues and methods of perspective in the context of their own pictorial concerns.
