Vision and the Artist| 1hr
Director: Gresham College | Producer: Gresham College
Focus Years: 2013 | Country: United Kingdom
Visual disorders affect the way we see, and therefore would be expected to influence how we depict the world in drawings and paintings.This fascinating subject is explored using images created by artists with known defects. We examine how possible defects in the vision of artists for whom we have little information about their eyesight, might explain how they produced their individual style. How the physiology of vision is deliberately used by artists to create stunning visual effects, and how ancient artists achieved similar results by deduction will be explored.
