Description
Gombrich discusses the way shadows were represented -- or ignored -- by artists from the Renaissance to the seventeenth century and then describes how Romantic, Impressionist and Surrealist artists exploited the device of the cast shadow to enhance the illusion of realism or drama in their representations. First published to accompany an exhibition at the National Gallery, London, in 1995, it is reissued here with additional colour illustrations and a new introduction by Nicholas Penny.
