Caption

Schematic reconstruction of Brunelleschi's first panel with a view of the Baptistery of San Giovanni, Florence, in centralized perspective. In drawing, the geometrical patterns of the building almost demand the discovery of the laws of perspective. In one-point perspective, the horizontals and verticals which run across the field of view remain parallel, as their vanishing points are at infinity, with horizontals which are perpendicular to the viewer vanish towards a point near the centre of the image. Perspective, in context of vision and visual perception, is the way in which objects appear to the eye based on their spatial attributes, or their dimensions and the position of the eye relative to the objects. Perspective in the graphic arts, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface, of an image as it is seen by the eye.
