The Practice of Perspective: 18th C. Etchings - Plate #83
The Practice of Perspective was one of the most influential works of the 18th century on perspective in art. Illustrated with highly detailed copper plates of architecture and objects, it was written in French by a Parisian Jesuit and later printed by Thos. Bowles in London, 1739. Our framed prints meticulously reproduce numbered plates from this historical work, each a fascinating study of the relationship between perspective and a vanishing point.
