About The Lost Secret of the Old Masters

Hi, I’m Peter Bouc and I’m an independent researcher. If you're reading this, first of all, thank you so much for even considering supporting my work. Why Patreon? I didn't originally think I would need Patreon. But so far most of the scholars are afraid to comment on my discovery.  Emeritus Professor of the History of Art at Oxford University and a leading expert in the field Martin Kemp's comment quite captures the attitude of art historians. “It is ingenious and skillfully done. As a historian I have to go by the surviving historical evidence. The is no evidence in any of the pantings of this period (underdrawings, incised lines etc.) of such procedures being used. There is nothing of the sort in any of the treatise on pictorial geometry and perspective.“
He is right, but the painters like Raphael, Veronese, Velasquez, Vermeer, to name just a few, left in their paintings important clues, which have remained unnoticed until today. It is evident that the most consistent perspective masters did not describe theoretical concepts and did not leave any auxiliary geometric constructions. The system of the Renaissance perspective was kept secret and stayed secret for more than five hundred years. It was valuable know-how, after all. However, so far I found evidence in books by Jean Pelerin and Sebastiano Serlio and there certainly is more, but I need your support in my further research. Because geometry carries endless possibilities, for research in this field one has to be patient and devoted to the subject. After almost ten years (many thanks to my wife for enduring it so long) I can put the fruits of my efforts before you.
