A companion volume to Art and Illusion, The Image and the Eye provides a comprehensive and intriguing overview of art and our perception of it. In a series of papers and lectures, Professor Gombrich presents his thoughts and arguments on subjects as diverse as photography's tricks with perspective, the problems of expressing emotion through art and how pictorial representation can alter the way in which we see the real world. Like all Professor Gombrich's works, these masterly pieces display a lively curiosity and an infectious enthusiasm for understanding the challenges presented by art.
