Bérain, Jean

Jean Bйrain, active in scenography as successor to C. Vigarini in 1680, abandoned the tradition of points of view at infinity, reducing the illusion of depth in favour of moveable space along the sides as was mentioned by Povoledo (1975,1597). His sketch for Le port de la Capitale de Cochide was mentioned by Schnapper (1982, fig. 49).
