An oil painting from 1865 shows a scenery from Norway with pine trees in the marshes between steep hills."Hertervig 3D" explores pictorial space in this scenery. The painter Lars Hertervig (1830-1902) has already decoded and rendered natural space in his painting.That same information can be read, analysed and input to be used in a computerbased virtual landscape. This method allows conclusions about the way the painter constructed perspective and space.
