More Description


In this fascinating book, one of the foremost art historians in the world traces how cast shadows have been depicted in Western art through the centuries. E.H. Gombrich points out that cast shadows - the shadows thrown by objects on their surroundings in daylight and. under artificial illumination-can enhance the impression of the surrounding light as well as that of the solidity of the casting objects, can contribute to the mood of the scene, and can reveal the presence of features outside the space represented. Yet, says Gombrich, cast shadows appear only sporadically in art and - have been more frequently ignored or suppressed.
