A great resource to compliment your Renaissance and perspective studies is
the video "Masters of Illusion." I just previewed it and will be showing it
to my high school students next week. (Hadn't planned to jump into
perspective quite yet but the film came in, so.....)

I was able to obtain a copy through a loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine
Arts. I should think that other museums/libraries might have it.

It's colorful and informative without being dull. In fact, I, personally,
found it pretty fascinating. (This, of course, is not to say that my kids
will be enthralled, but it's far better than another one on the Renaissance
that I previewed earlier this evening!)
