5.0 su 5 stelle Required reading for all visual artists 4 agosto 2013
Di Van webster - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Professor Livingstone and her staff have done critical research into how the mechanics, optics, chemistry and perception of seeing impacts our impression of the visual world. Written in an accessible style with numerous examples from the world of art, this book is an essential reference for anyone who creates or looks at art. It may take multiple reading trough to fully grasp the concepts described but the effort is well worth it. Artists can use the tools and techniques to better define their images. Viewers gain a deeper understanding of the visual cues and tones used by artists. "Vision and Art" will forever change the way you see the world around you.
5.0 su 5 stelle The fascinating meeting of science and art 21 dicembre 2010

"Seeing is believing" is a very old adage, but what is it that we really see? That is the big question this book seeks to answer. And a very big question it is. Vision is very complex, as we know, but it is often made even more so by art and the tricks that can be played on the observer. Artists have discovered, probably by intuition, and often capitalized on what it is that we think we see rather than what we are really seeing. This book not only gives many examples of this, but leaves the reader with the feeling that this may very well be the key to why art is such an important subject.

Artists will love this book, mostly because it explains much of the science that lies behind vision and tricks of vision with lots of illustrations. Visually-directed people of all stripes will appreciate that element because it puts the science within easy grasp. But I also believe that anyone who is interested in the intersection of science, art and the mind will find this book to be uniquely fascinating page after page after page.

5.0 su 5 stelle Essential Information for All Visual Artists 6 febbraio 2013

How human visual perception works may seem intuitive or obvious to artists--but you would be wise to study this book and realize that it's much more complex, subtle, and amazing than you think. Livingstone lays it out with great illustrations and very readable explanations of complicated cell-level processes. Then she goes on to show how great artists have applied these principles to their work. She answers many questions regarding the mechanisms which make great art so evocative.
If you want to be a good artist, or understand what's happening when we appreciate art, get this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle Clear and concise 2 settembre 2011
Di Douglas McMillin - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is an excellent read on the titular subject, with emphasis being placed on the biology and not things subjective, and many colour images are provided by way of illustration and example. My only objection is personal: I do not care for books laid out in the style of this one, with captions and sidebars being given space more-or-less equal to that taken up by the main text, as if this will somehow 'popularize' the book; to me it only succeeds in repeating material and interrupting the good read. Five stars in spite of this.
5.0 su 5 stelle Great book but no references 18 aprile 2011

Having read some technical papers by Livingston, I checked out this book by her at a library. I was so impressed, I decided to buy my own copy. I've since loaned it out several times and reread it several times. I have a strong science background but no art background and found the book very easy to read and enlightening. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to understand how two dimensional paintings "work". My only problem with the book was the lack of references.
