Florimène at the Court of Charles I


The Florimène Documents:

Longitudinal section of the temporary stage, Whitehall


A sectional drawing represents a "cut" or "slice" through an object. Using the paradigm of a house, a transverse section would reflect a slice through the building from left to right, relative to the front of the house. A longitudinal section would reflect a slice from the front door to the back. Sections are usually, but not always, taken on a center line.
