Abstract / Description

Children can draw visually realistic objects if they know how to focus on the embedded object contour as shown by the Embedded Figure Test [1-3]. However, an object contour is not a useful visual cue for drawing in perspective. Even at age eleven, only a minority of children draw in perspective [4]. The current brief review shows what kind of stimulus model is needed to elicit a perspective drawing much earlier than after a protracted stage-wise development. It is demonstrated that when perspective is embodied in the spatial model itself, and object-and view-specificity are in agreement, visual awareness is not required in order to be able to draw in perspective. It is concluded that early perspective mapping can be carried out by normally developing, and not just by highly practised talented or autistic children.
