Designe  -   ∙ "Designe" is an Italian term closely related to our modern word "design." It  describes the composition and perspective of a painting; in other words, the way in  which the artist has arranged shapes and figures to represent a given scene or  personality on a flat surface.  Patron   -   ∙ During the Renaissance, an artist might work as part of a workshop, which  would receive commissions for artworks from various sources, or he might work as an  individual, under a patron. A patron would provide for the artist financially while the artist  worked on projects for him.  Perspective  -   ∙ The technique in painting of representing three-dimensional forms on a  two dimensional surface. When a painting is done in perspective, forms in the distance  appear smaller than forms in the foreground, and the eye focuses on a single point.
