Richardson shows at the outset that pictorial art is founded on habits of perception, not on objective laws. His focus is alway on the artwork in relation to a specific viewer in a specific time and place. He consistently explores perspective, line and volume, light and shade, colour, and space in terms of different artists, periods, societies, and conventions.
