Marcos C. D. Neves
Year: 2011
The perspective issue in the work of Galileo, its impact on the new art of perspectives in the Renaissance, the new post-Copernican moon and the tense relationships with the Catholic Church are evaluated.

\"Past products of artistic activity are still part and parcel of the artistic scene. [...] In Science, new things start with the abolishment of books and scientific journals, now turned obsolete, and the elimination of their active stance in a Science Library, removed to a barn [...] In contrast to Art, Science destroys its own past.\" (KUHN, 1993, p. 370)
