French describes perspective in two forms: linear and aerial.

Linear perspective suggests distance by the convergence of lines and the diminished size of objects as they move back into space.

Aerial perspective relates to the atmosphere of objects in the distance; the further an object is in the distance the more hazy and unfocused it looks.
