Record Type: concept
anamorphic perspective (perspective (technique), <perspective and shading techniques>, ... Processes and Techniques (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Refers to a system of perspective that is based on orthodox linear perspective but exploits the extreme degradation of forms on the picture plane at very wide angles of view. It uses the optical trick of anamorphosis, in which a form depicted on the picture plane is subject to such extreme lateral stretching that it is unrecognizable from the front, but legible when viewed from a very shallow angle.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar een perspectiefsysteem dat is gebaseerd op het orthodox lineair perspectief, maar gebruikmaakt van de extreme vertekening van vormen op het afbeeldingsvlak bij zeer brede zichthoeken. Het maakt gebruik van de optische trucage van anamorfose, waarbij een op een afbeeldingsvlak weergegeven vorm lateraal zo extreem wordt uitgerekt dat het van voren gezien onherkenbaar is, maar vanuit een zeer schuine hoek wel te onderscheiden valt. 
Spanish ..... Sistema que se basa en perspectiva linear ortodoxa basada en la degradación extrema de formas en el plano del cuadro. Utiliza el truco óptico del anamórfica, en el cual una forma representada en el plano del cuadro es conforme a al lateral, pero es irreconocible de frente, sólo es legible cuando está vista de un ángulo muy bajo.
