Scolari, Massimo. Oblique Drawing: A History of Anti-Perspective

MIT Press

Cl. 2012

Book ID: 92970

Scolaris generously illustrated studies show that illusionistic perspective is not the only, or even the best, representation of objects in history; parallel projection, for example, preserves in scale the actual measurements of objects it represents, avoiding the distortions of one-point perspective. Scolari analyzes the use of nonperspectival representations in pre-Renaissance images of machines and military hardware, architectural models and drawings, and illustrations of geometrical solids. He challenges Panofskys theory of Pompeiian perspective and explains the difficulties encountered by the Chinese when they viewed Jesuit missionaries perspectival religious images.
