This continuation of Randall's previous lecture, Linear Perspective: A Renaissance Revolution in Art & Science, dives into three of the best known Renaissance artists: Leonardo da Vinci (The Last Supper), Michelangelo (The Sistine Chapel), and Raphael (The School of Athens).
Leonardo Da Vinci declared linear perspective "art's most essential science." The revival of perspective not only influenced the way art was created, but it also forever altered humanity's view of their place in the universe.
Join artist and historian Randall DiGiuseppe on a journey through history exploring the origins of linear perspective from the early Renaissance and its long-lasting influences on the modern world.
