Works of art may be the representations of socially sanctioned habits of seeing and understanding the world. The history of art can thus be cast as a history of competing scopic regimes that create, deny, or fetishize fictive space through the use of such tools, media, and conventions as single-point perspective, vedute, trompe-l’œil, panoramas, maquettes, etc. Art history has dealt with these ideologically-inflected but perceptually essential tools from a variety of technical, historical and theoretical stances.
