"[Perspective] gave actions a broader horizon, rendered simultaneity, manifested the complexity of the causes and the constituents of events in time, showing their context and their consequences, effortlessly transforming allusion into historical representation. Perspective, as has often been remarked, leads inevitably to history. But, once again, being eludes it.” - Yves Bonnefoy, The Lure and the Truth of Painting
