Linear Perspective

I chose this picture from Raffaello Sanzio because even the shape of the piece lends itself to linear perspective. Finding an art piece from this time period with linear perspective was more difficult than I had imagined because many of the pages online have misleading names for the authors. This piece shows linear perspective mostly with the setting and the land form that all of the people are standing on. The hill is shaped in a point and the people on the top of the hill are further back than the people in the foreground. Even the placement of the subjects is in a linear direction toward the vantage point on the horizon.
