Magic in Art by Alexander Sturgis


Magic in Art by Alexander Sturgis

Art is magic! A great painting is not simply a matter of illustrating a scene as it is viewed by the eye. Artists go to great lengths to add effects of depth, focus, lighting and perspecive to their work to help draw the audience in. Not only that, but some artists, such as Escher, use optical illusions and other tricks to create works of unique fascination and to confound the visual senses. Contains a table of contents, index and glossary.
