Description:

Now in paperback, this groundbreaking study by Harvard neurobiologist Margaret Livingstone explores the inner workings of vision, demonstrating that how we see art depends ultimately on the cells in our eyes and our brains. InVision and Art, Livingstone explains how great painters fool the brain: why Mona Lisas smile seems so mysterious, Monets Poppy Field appears to sway in the breeze, Mondrians Broadway Boogie Woogie blinks like the lights of Times Square, and Warhols Electric Chair pulses with current. Drawing on history and her own cutting- edge discoveries, Livingstone offers intriguing insights, from explanations of common optical illusions, to speculations on the correlation of learning disabilities with artistic skill. By skillfully bridging the space between science and art,Vision and Artwill both arm artists and designers with new techniques that they can use in their own craft, and thrill any reader with an interest in the biology of human vision.
