New Essays on the Psychology of Art
by Rudolf Arnheim
Publisher's Description
Arnheim's concern continues to be visual perception as the mind's instrument to explore reality. He examines the roots of theories of artistic perception in essays on art psychologists Max Wertheimer, Gustav Theodor Fechner, and Wilhelm Worringer. Other essays concentrate on color composition, forgeries, problems in perspective, the perception of maps, the metaphors of Dante, and the meaning of music. Two essays focus on photography, "On the Nature of Photography" and "Splendor and Misery of the Photographer."
