Art information > Art Encyclopedia > R > Recession

In art, recession is the appearance or illusion of depth in a picture. The traditional methods of achieving the sense of recession are by deploying the more distant shapes higher up the format; by placing shapes in front of each other; by perspective devices; by foreshortening; by contrast of tones and colours weakened or strengthened, to indicate distance or proximity respectively. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
