C. W. Eckersberg (b. Blåkrog near Aabenraa 1783, d. Copenhagen 1853)

C.W. Eckersberg: Linearperspectiven, anvendt paa Malerkunsten, en Række af perspectivistiske Studier. Cph: C.A. Reitzel 1841. 1st. ed. Queer folio. With 11 full page engraved plates. Orig. paperwrappers mounted on a later paperbinding.

In 1841 Eckersberg published this important thesis on perspective, which he had become more and more occupied with during his career. The work naturally draws on his own experiences and began in the 1830s when he gave classes in perspective drawing at the Academy. It gives an illustrative insight into the artistic thoughts of one of the major figures of the Danish Golden Age of art.
