Alexis Rochas discusses the representation of figure, architecture and landscape in the paintings of Piero della Francesca, Andrea Mantegna and Raphael. Rochas discusses Piero della Francisca in terms of a shift from intuition to geometry, and the integration of architectural elements. He discusses how Andrea Mantegna used perspective to open up space and compositional techniquesto collapse depth. Raphael integrated complex arrangements of fully rounded figures in carefully defined space.
