Neurobiologist Margaret Livingstone explores why some Impressionist paintings shimmer, why some op art paintings seem to move, principles of Matisse’s use of color, and how the Impressionists painted “air”. She explores how artists have intuited important features about how our brains extract relevant information about faces and objects, and why learning disabilities may be associated with artistic talent.
