Book DescriptionFrom the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries, Europe witnessed significant new developments in the science and art of perspective. This comprehensive and insightful book identifies and discusses the multiple discourses produced onperspective throughout this period by such authors as Leonardo da Vinci, Piero della Francesca, Albrecht Durer, Sebastiano Serlio, and Matteo Zaccolini. Fifteen distinguished scholars provide commentary on the complex history and variable nature of early modern perspective studies, addressing issues of reception, dissemination, citation, longevity, format, and imagery. These studies revise our understanding of how perspective theory and practice evolved over time and how this unique species of publication affected the course of art, architecture, and mathematics in early modern Europe.
