42 3 Understanding Errors in Perspective Fig. 1 Under-foreshortening, method 1. Author’s drawing The error in these cases is understandable, because the rule of diminishing intervals would have necessitated a drastic intervention given the lack of depth in the scene (Type II ad hoc error). In this category we can also find the technique known as diminution by one-third. ”8 Alberti in fact mentioned the ratio vitiosa (De pictura, I, 19) before applying his own method. There were a whole range of fallacies of this kind.

This is actually a method of under-foreshortening and leads to the production of concave diagonals. Why was such an error accepted by Lorenzetti, Rogier van der Weyden, Carpaccio and other painters? Perhaps because for the Renaissance artist trained in the abaco school of calculation,9 such proportional representations recalled the “Golden Rule” whereby: a:b¼c:d Let us return to the perspective view and designate as AiBi and AiAj the apparent width and height of a square. The application of the Golden Rule gives us: A0 B0 : A0 A1 ¼ A1 B1 : A1 A2 ¼ Á Á Á ¼ Ai Bi : Ai Aj ¼ Á Á Á ¼ Am Bm : Am An This relationship implies that the proportional ratio between the heights from the first interval to the last can be directly estimated by the naked eye.
