Friends of the Uffizzi
In the early quattrocento (15th century), Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446) introduced a means of rendering the recession of space on a two-dimensional surface, which we now call linear perspective. In Brunelleschi’s technique, lines appear to converge at a single fixed point in the distance. This technique produces a convincing depiction of spatial depth on a flat surface. Dr. Cole focuses on Brunelleschi’s technique and investigates whether he invented it or re-invented it from Classical Antiquity. The discussion analyzes some of the earliest paintings to employ linear perspective and traces its continued development into the 1500s.
