focal plane - In photography, an image line at right angle to the optical axis passing through the focal point. This forms the plane of sharp focus when a camera is set on infinity.
Also see aperture, camera, focal length, and f/stop.
Picture Plane - An imaginary flat surface that is assumed to be identical to the surface of a painting. Forms in a painting meant to be perceived in deep three-dimensional space are said to be"behind" the picture plane.

The basic plane is in general rectangular or square, thus it is composed of horizontals and verticals lines which delimitate it and define it as an autonomous being which will serve as support to the painting communicating it its affective tonality.
Hint: All planes must be perpendicular or parallel to you in order for this system to work correctly. If you are looking at the corner of an object that is not at a 90 degree angle to you this will create distortions! ...

street constitute a fine example of early 19th-century town planning.

Cubism is based on the simultaneous presentation of multiple views, disintegration, and the geometric reconstruction of objects in flattened, ambiguous pictorial so space; figure and ground merge into one interwoven surface of shifting planes.
DEPTH: the illusion of space in a picture plane.

The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the ambiguous shallow space characteristic of cubism. Some art historians speculate that Cubism originated in the work of Cezanne.
Elevation: An architectural drawing presenting a building as if projected on a vertical plane parallel to one of its sides.

The African continent is one of the most diverse countries on the planet, with many different ethnic societies. Most having their own unique culture and vision. So what is meant by 'Traditional' African Art?
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and Georges Braque (1882-1963) and considered to be "the" revolutionary movement of modern art, Cubism was a more intellectual style of painting that explored the full potential of the two-dimensional picture plane ...
During this period inventions such as photography, cinematography, sound recording, the telephone, the motor car and the airplane heralded the dawn of a new age.
The engineering concepts of aerodynamics in the 1930's, originally developed in connection with the airplane, were transferred to automotive design as well, particularly as cars became faster, and marketing of cars became more competitive.
Like the Cubists, Boccioni's pictorial language is based on shallow spaces and shifting planes.
After 1908, Picasso joined with Braque and other like-minded artists to explore the representation of three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface by means of overlapping planes.
We wish to reassert the picture plane. We are for flat forms because they destroy illusion and reveal truth."
--Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko, 1943 in a letter to The New York Times

Here are a couple of humorous photographs which relate to changes near the turn of the century.
Whereas analytical cubism fragmented figures into geometric planes, synthetic cubism synthesized (combined) near-abstract shapes to create representational forms, such as a human figure or still life. Synthetic cubism also tended toward multiplicity.
Analytic cubists reduced natural forms to their basic geometric parts and then tried to reconcile these essentially three-dimensional parts with the two-dimensional picture plane. Color was greatly subdued, and paintings were nearly monochromatic.
The front of the picture plane (usually at the bottom of the picture).
The main part of the picture that draws the viewer's attention.
The space between two lines or planes that intersect.
A collection of static images joined together and shown consecutively so that they appear to move.
shape. A two-dimensional area or plane that may be open or closed, free-form or geometric. It can be found in nature or is made by humans.
Cues indicating an object's position in relation to the picture plane and to other objects, reflecting 3-D space on 2-D surfaces. Techniques include overlap, relative size or scale, highlighting/shading, aerial and vanishing-point perspective.
In all-over space, the forms are seen as occupying the same spatial depth, usually on the picture plane; also, they are all seen as possessing the same degree of importance in the painting.
Bas relief: the lowest degree of relief, in which all the carving lies within the hollowed-out area below the surface plane, and through an illusion of depth and roundness, looks like raised relief. See also Relief
Bozzetto: see Maquette ...
The area of a picture that appears closest to the viewer. It is often at the bottom of the picture plane.

postmodernism seeks to recover truths and values from various forms of premodern thought and practice. Constructive postmodernism wants to replace modernism and modernity, which it sees as threatening the very survival of life on the planet.
Surrealism occupied artists in diverse locations, including Europe, the United States, South America, and Mexico. The concept that the human mind could transcend the earthly plane was a central way to view the "absolute reality" described by Breton.
Artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, he felt, had moved away from the dogmatic attitudes of artists such as Mondrian and van Doesburg, and were using broad, flat color planes and hard edges in a more open manner.
Minimal artists focused on colour, formation, and geometric shape. Sometimes artwork was devised on a mathematical grid map. Artists used repetition and large planes of pure colour, often applying paint directly from the tube.
Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism's distinct characteristics.
