Using an approach deeply informed by philosophy of art, art history and perceptual psychology, this book places seeing at the centre of an original theory of pictorial representation and explores the ramifications such a theory has for the visual arts.
MICHAEL NEWALL is Lecturer in History & Philosophy of Art at the University of Kent, UK. He is winner of the 2009 John Fisher Memorial Prize in Aesthetics.
