Some Renaissance painters employed ever more complex systems of mathematical perspective in their attempts to paint the real world. Others took a far more imaginative approach to depicting architecture. Join curator Caroline Campbell for a private tour of works from our 'Building the Picture' exhibition and the wider gallery. Investigate how artists invented spaces in mind and paint that transcended the reality of bricks, mortar and marble.
