Pendant toute la seconde moitié du 15è siècle coexistent en Europe et surtout en Italie deux styles de peinture : celui gothique linéaire encore souvent proche de la “peinture plate” en deux dimensions, et le style “moderne”, qui n’est qu’un retour à l’esthétique de l’Antiquité, qui tend vers une représentation en trois dimensions du monde.

Throughout the second half of the 15th century, two styles of painting coexisted in Europe and especially in Italy: the linear Gothic style often still close to “flat paint” in two dimensions, and the “modern” style, which is only back to the aesthetics of antiquity, which tends towards a three-dimensional representation of the world.
