Origin of perspective

Middle English, attested since 1381, from Old - or Middle French, from the first word of the Medieval Latin perspectiva ars (“science of optics"), the feminine of perspectivus (“of sight, optical"), from perspectus, the past participle of perspicere (“to inspect, look through"), itself from per- (“through") + specere (“to look at"); the noun sense was influenced or mediated by Italian prospettiva, from prospetto (“prospect").
