Trompe-l'œil (French for "deceive the eye", pronounced [tʁɔ̃p lœj]) is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. Forced perspective is a comparable illusion in architecture.
Though the phrase, which can also be spelled without the hyphen and ligature in English as trompe l'oeil,[1] originates in the Baroque period, when it refers to perspective illusionism, trompe-l'œil dates much further back. It was (and is) often employed in murals.
Instances from Greek and Roman times are known,for instance in Pompeii. A typical trompe-l'œil mural might depict a window, door, or hallway, intended to suggest a larger room.
