Caption: Measuring perspective for art. This woodcut was made by the German artist Albrecht Durer (1471- 1528). His skillful use of perspective and mathematical proportions made him one of the outstanding artistic figures of the early 16th century. The technique shown here interprets a device invented by Jacob de Keyser in 1500. Taken from The Complete Woodcuts of Albrecht Durer by Dr Willi Kurth (1936).
