Drawing perspective

Welcome to the blog of the History of Science Collections of the University of Oklahoma Libraries. This blog will keep you informed about special events, current exhibits, research tips, who we are, images recently digitized, recent acquisitions, archives, manuscripts, photographs, collections, finding aids, and aids for students in history of science classes.

The header for the blog is taken from a 1535 work by Albrecht Dürer held in the Collections. The transformation of a three-dimensional object onto a two-dimensional canvas by means of perspective drawing, depicted by Dürer, suggests our aim to transform the three-dimensional space of the History of Science Collections onto the ethereal “canvas” of this blog.

View additional Dürer images at the Collections’ image galleries.
