The second Book addresses the problem of establishing perspective for paintings executed on curved or irregular surfaces, like vaults and niches, presents a general technique of anamorphosis.

His painting The Ambassadors is the most famous example for anamorphosis, in which a distorted shape lies diagonally across the bottom of the frame.

Besides the mentioned traffic signals on the asphalt, we’ve got examples on posters, album covers, movies, advertisings and even beer brands which use this resource.

The publication also associates the illusory effects of optics with a contemporary acceptance of natural magic or proto-science.


Book four deals with the distortions created by refraction. The process was rediscovered by visual artists at the end of the last century, recognized anamprfosis as a great potential artistic tool.

From that on, Anamorphosis left the artistical mark and became part of the popular taste, spread out in order to transmit political messages, caricatures and erotic images for those who knew the “secret” of the mirror.

Dynamic Geometry Software by Adrian Oldknow.

It concentrates primarily on the practical applications of perspective, catoptrics and dioptrics. Who’s Who of Victorian Cinema. But the using mirrors technique, whose first registers goes back to Ancient China and was spread out on the 17th century, is certainly the most curious one.

Dioptrics is a branch of optics dealing with the refraction of light, especially by lenses Anamorphosis is a distorted projection of an image which only becomes clear when the observer’s point of view changes or it is viewed as a reflection produced by a specific curved mirror surface The 17th century book illustrations below instruct artists about the basic geometrical properties involved in producing artworks with some types of projected and distorted perspectives and optical illusions.

Even with its exotic characteristics, Anamorphosis is highly present at the popular culture and in our daily life. Posted by peacay at 7: While I have no real basis to disbelieve that assessment, a lot of treatises on perspective were published before Niceron’s time by eminent scientists and artists and I think this deep subject requires a lot more study than a mere skim of a search engine results page to draw definitive conclusions.

Niceron’s academic connections kept him well informed about the latest advancements in scientific thinking, particularly within the fields of optics and geometry. Niceron was sympathetic to the idea that optics was as much an art of illusion as it was a science of the properties of light.
