I am developing a lesson on linear perspective (one point) for an 8th =
grade math class which I will be team teaching with the math teacher. =
He is not an artist and I am no mathematician. Does anyone know of math =
formulas that I can apply to the lesson, preferably dealing with the =
calculation of distances between objects (or transversals on a 1 point =
persp. grid) as they recede into the distance. I have found many books =
which talk about the ideas of Alberti, Leonardo, and Brunelleschi, but =
none that show their calculations.
Oh, and if anyone is looking for a video that deals with this topic, a =
really good one is called Masters of Illusion from the National Gallery =
of Art. I got my copy from the local public library.
