Vision and art : the biology of seeing by Margaret Livingstone( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The author] explains how vision works. She tells us how great painters fool the brain: why Mona Lisa's smile seems so mysterious, Monet's Poppy Field appears to sway in the breeze, Mondrian's Broadway Boogie Woogie blinks like the lights of Times Square, and Warhol's Electric Chair pulses with current. Drawing on history and her own cutting-edge discoveries, [the author] offers ... insights, from explanations of common optical illusions to speculations on the correlation of learning disabilities with artistic skill. Her ... theories are illustrated throughout with fine art and clear diagrams.-http://www.abramsbooks.com
