Welcome to CollaMeta!
The Perspectograph – an invention of Leonardo da Vinci’s which put mechanical skill to artistic use. It was adopted by Albrecht Dürer, a painter, printmaker and a theorist of the German Renaissance. He was one of the first European landscape artists. With one eye covered, the artist could trace the outlines of a model onto a glass pane, and thereby respect linear perspective.
We thus stand on the shoulders of the pioneers before us and ponder the vistas we survey. Every long journey, begins with the प्रथम (PrathaMa from Sanskrit) or the first step!
