The Museum of Illusions

by Prestel

This book presents a fascinating overview of the different methods of illusion practiced by artists over hundreds of years. Organized into five chapters—"Optical Illusions," "Distortions and Hidden Images," "De-Figurations," "Questioning Perception," and "Overstepping Reality"—it brings together artists from various time periods and disciplines. Dozens of illustrated examples offer intriguing comparisons of works by Magritte and Li Wei, Cindy Sherman and Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Michelangelo and Duane Hanson, and many more. Readers will come away with an understanding of how artists perceive our world, and how their reflections and distortions are at once confusing and enlightening. Author: Celine Delavaux 192 pp., 8.25x10.25 Hardcover ISBN: 9783791347776
