In the visual arts, color theory is a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual effects of a specific color combination. There are also definitions (or categories) of colors based on the color wheel: primary color, secondary color and tertiary color. Although color theory principles first appeared in the writings of Leone Battista Alberti (c.1435) and the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci (c.1490). #GlogsterEDU #ColorTheory #Art

"I do not know why painted things have so much grace in the mirror. It is marvelous how every weakness in a painting is so manifestly deformed in a mirror..." Leon Battista Alberti, 1435, 'Della Pittura' ('On Painting')

“The Wedding of the Virgin” altarpiece by Raphael - Linear perspective was invented in the XV century, allowing artists to make paintings that looked like they had depth and receding elements. Linear perspective is the idea that converging lines will meet at a vanishing point in the painting. Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472) developed  a linear perspective mathematical  theory that he published in his book Della Pittura.

The Trevi Fountain is a fountain in the Trevi rione in Rome, Italy., it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city. The Roman custom of building a handsome fountain at the endpoint of an aqueduct that brought water to Rome was revived in the 15th century, with the Renaissance. In 1453, Pope Nicholas V finished mending the Acqua Vergine aqueduct and built a simple basin, designed by the humanist architect Leon Battista Alberti, to herald the water's arrival.

Leon Battista Alberti was a quintessential Italian Renaissance man. Born in 1404 in Genoa into an exiled Florentine banking family, he received a classical education in Venice and Bologna. He studied Latin, Greek, canon law, mathematics, geometry and physics. In 1432 Alberti went to Rome to become a secretary in the papal curia; his service to several popes enabled him to travel extensively in Italy and make contact with influential people.

Vanishing Point employs perspective as both tool and visual outcome to reshape, redefine and represent a space. Inspired by sketches of Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo DaVinci and Albrecht Dürer, UVA sends lines into space from an arbitrary vanishing point, creating different volumes, divisions and rooms to be explored by the audience.  http://www.uva.co.uk/work/vanishing-point
