Trompe-L'oeil

Trompe L’Oeil, (French “deceive the eye”) in painting, the representation of an object with such verisimilitude as to deceive the viewer concerning the material reality of the object.

It is a type of optical illusion used to trick the eye into thinking that a flat surface, like a wall, is actually three-dimensional. This technique is often achieved through photorealistic painting, and careful use of perspective. Trompe l’oeil can be found across many artistic fields, from fine art to theatre sets to interior design.
