The outside edges of the image. The perception that the square or rectangle is a window through which an image is seen or perceived.
The two-dimensional picture surface.
plane of the lying immediately behind the window frame of the canvas
An imaginary plane surface usually considered to be placed between the viewer and the object onto which rays from points on the object are projected in order to produce a view. The drawing paper is in the picture plane.
The surface on which a picture is painted.
the flat surface of a picture in scientific perspective.
the front 'wall' of a painted picture, which is actually the surface of the canvas or paper itself
The region of the painting which lies directly behind the frame and separates the viewer's world from that of the picture.
the plane that is in the foreground of a drawing or painting; coextensive with but different from the objective surface of the work
The plane occupied by the physical surface of the picture. In most Representational painting, all the elements in the picture appear to recede from this plane, while trompe l'oeil effects are achieved by painting objects in such a way that they seem to project in front of the picture plane.
The actual two dimensional surface that a drawing is made
The actual flat surface on which the artist executes a pictorial image. In some cases the picture plane acts merely as a transparent plane of reference to establish the illusion of forms existing in a three-dimensional space.
() Two-dimensional picture surface.
The two-dimensional, flat surface of a painting, drawing, or print.
An imaginary flat surface that is assumed to be identical to the surface of a painting. Forms in a painting meant to be perceived in deep three-dimensional space are said to be “behind” the picture plane. The picture plane is commonly associated with the foreground of a painting.
This is the plane occupied by the actual surface of the painting.
Denotes the physical area covered by a painting, drawing, or watercolour.
The imaginary plane represented by the physical surface of a painting or drawing, comparable to the glass through which one sees a view beyond a window.
The flat plane occupied by the surface of a painting, often referred to in discussions of perspective.
The flat plane of the surface on which an image is painted, as a window into which the viewer looked into the painting's distance.
A picture plane is the imaginary flat surface which is usually located between the station point and the object being viewed and is ordinarily a vertical plane perpendicular to the horizontal projection of the line of sight to the object's order of interest.
