The art of optical illusion has been an integral part of painting since antiquity when it was used as a yardstick by which to judge an artist's level of mastery. This book presents a fascinating overview of the different methods of illusion practiced by artists over hundreds of years. Organised 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.
