SHADOWS AND ENLIGHTENMENT
by Michael Baxandall
Published by Yale University Press. 1997
Very good condition. Card wraps. Shadows are holes in light. We see them all the time, and sometimes we notice them, but their part in our visual experience of the world in mysterious. In this book, an eminent art historian draws on contemporary cognitive science, 18th century theories of visual perception, and art history to discuss shadows and the visual knowledge they offer.
