For more than six centuries, European painters sought to depict objects in a space which seemed equivalent to that of ‘our’ world. In a discussion that ranges from Uccello to Vermeer and Canaletto, and from Titian to Monet and Van Gogh, Nicholas Penny describes how great artists made the fiction of pictorial space compelling. He examines some of the most popular devices employed by those artists and, in doing so, provides an introduction to some of the fundamental themes in European art.
Pictorial Space is part of the National Gallery’s Closer Look series, in which acknowledged experts write for a wide audience on themes in European painting. Authors include David Bomford, Erika Langmuir and Alexander Sturgis.
