Definitions for "Linear Perspective"
A system for representing three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface; it treats the optical phenomenon of diminishing size by treating edges as converging parallel lines which extend to a vanishing point on the horizon (at eye-level).
One of the pictorial cues to depth which relies on the fact that objects appear smaller when they are further from the viewer. As a result, parallel lines receding into the distance seem to converge, and the eye uses this pattern as a cue to distance.
A cue for distance that can be portrayed on a flat surface, exploiting the fact that objects appear smaller if viewed from a distance, and that parallel lines seem to converge as they recede into depth.
A geometric constructed convention used to represent human visual perception of objects in space in the real world...
