Analytic Cubist Perspective

Analytic cubist perspective, as opposed to synthetic cubist perspective, according to Saint Martin, maintains methods of super position, oblique vectoralities and contrasts of tonalities habitual to production of distant perspectives, but proximity is emphasized by piling of objects in the direction of the viewer. It is constructed as low-relief, and enveloped by a peripheral oval layer often dark and diffuse. Saint Martin classes it among the intermediary prospectives.
