Practically all paintings deal with the illusion of space in one way or another. Since the Renaissance artists have been creating the illusion of space with aerial and linear perspective. In our own century artists have developed methods of scale variation within a work and principles of advancing and receding colors to aid in creating the sense or illusion of depth on a plane surface.
