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 system for creating the illusion of depth on a two-dimensional surface. The system is based on a scientifically or mathematically derived series of actual or implied lines that intersect at a vanishing point on the horizon. Linear perspective determines the relative size of objects from the foreground of an image to the background.

Perspective based on the fact that parallel lines or edges appear to converse and objects appear smaller as the distance between them and the viewer increases.

Showing depth and distance in a picture with converging lines.

the appearance of things relative to one another as determined by their distance from the viewer

A mathematical system for representing three-dimensional objects from a single viewpoint.

a technique that created the illusion of depth on a flat surface.

A mathematical technique for making objects on a flat (two-dimensional) surface look like they are getting farther away.

The idea that converging lines meet at a single vanishing point and all shapes get smaller in all directions with increasing distance from the eye.

Uses real or suggested lines converging on a vanishing point or points on the horizon line or at eye level, and linking receding planes as they converge. It provides a three-dimensional world on a two-dimensional surface.

A method of depicting three-dimensional depth on a flat or two-dimensional surface. Linear perspective has two main precepts: 1. Forms that are meant to be perceived as far away from the viewer are made smaller than those meant to be seen as close 2. Parallel lines receding into the distance converge at a point on the horizon line known as the vanishing point.

Lines of buildings, roads, and similar objects are slanted. They appear to come together or meet in the distance

A mathematical system for creating the illusion of space and distance on a flat surface such as a canvas or wall.

A system used to develop three-dimensional images on a two-dimensional surface; it develops the optical phenomenon of diminishing size by treating edges as converging parallel lines. They extend to a vanishing point or points on the horizon (eye-level) and recede from the viewer. (See perspective)

A graphic system used by artists to create the illusion of depth and volume on a flat surface. The lines of buildings and other objects in a picture are slanted, making them appear to extend back into space.

Technique for creating the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface through the apparent recession of parallel lines (or edges) to a vanishing point. The basic laws of perspective were first formulated in a systematic and comprehensive manner by the Renaissance sculptor/architect Filippo Brunelleschi.

In perspective, a monocular cue for depth. When parallel lines appear to converge, they are perceived as vanishing in the distance. See also relative height, relative size, superposition.

Depth created in a work by an artist, usually by following geometric rules, where the lines of objects in a work recede to a common vanishing point.
