Research Point Trompe L’oeil

I had great fun with this exercise, looking through examples of this effect. I was surprised bot at how long established it is – one of the examples I found was from 1465, the latest a contemporary piece from Banksy. I also found a very useful article on the subject on Wikipedia, the link is in the attached report. I looked through loads of images and selected a few for the attached piece which I have divided into categories of where the originals are to be found (e.g. as paintings, interior effects, external paintings).

The images need to be seen to fully appreciate them, but for copyright reasons I can’t reproduce them here, so I’ve had to substitute  web links for the images in the attached document. It doesn’t look so interesting I’m afraid!
