Painters of the times mastered new techniques such as linear perspective,chiaroscuro (shading style), trompe l’oeil (three dimensional), optical fusion (similar to pointillism, but with lines instead of dots) and graphical perspective. Unfortunately, what Pliny recorded as the most extreme art, panel paintings, did not survive. At any rate, many frescoes did as they decorated business buildings and places of worship.
