Study of a Chalice

drawing by paolo uccello
Yes, this isn’t a painting. But, it is a great example of the work done by the Italian painter Paolo Uccello (1400-1475).

This work, Study of a Chalice is a pen and ink drawing on paper that has somehow miraculously survived over 450 years. In it we see a perspective drawing of a chalice.

Since Uccello is often seen in the art world as being more important for his efforts in defining perspective, it seems only fitting to include this wonderful example of his work in that area.
