Paintings are all two-dimensional and we view them in the plane that is perpendicular to the plane in which both our eyes lie.\nSo if a painting is mounted on a wall we face the wall directly and view the painting. But what if we were to stand at a 45 degree angle to the wall?\nThis idea has been exploited in creating paintings that when viewed from 3 different angles result in 3 different images. Vertical blinds that have been used as a device to create this effect. Each blind is painted upon with a splice of the image and together they form the complete portrait. In a single frame therefore, portraits of 3 people can be seen.\n(These were behind glass so the pictures do no do justice to the paintings but will suffice to convey the idea)\n\nWhen seen from the right\n\n\n\nWhen seen head-on\n\n\n\nWhen seen from the left\n\n\nPainting 2\n\nWhen seen from the left\n\n\n\nWhen seen head-on\n\n\n\nWhen seen from the right\n\n\n\nInteresting use of Physics in Art!\n\u00a0\nGO BACK TO RAJASTHAN DIARIES\njm\nMar 2014\nThe post Umaid Bhavan Palace Museum \u2013 Paintings appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
