  • Quadratura is a term introduced during the Baroque period in Italy to describe simulated or illusionistic architecture.
  • Renaissance artists such as Baldassare Peruzzi had experimented with painted architectural settings, but this became a more elaborate exercise in future generations. This allowed simple ceilings to be frescoed with elaborate perspectives, typically opening up to a painted sky.
  • A prominent school of quadratura arose in Baroque Bologna.
