Are things really as they appear? Our eyes can easily be deceived and great artists take advantage of this. Their works contain images within images, hidden messages, and crooked lines that appear completely straight. They have created optical illusions, trompe l'oeils, and baffling Surrealist pictures. Using masterpieces by Rene Magritte, M.C. Escher, Victor Vasarely and many others, this book explains the 13 most important optical tricks. Art is a history of illusions, and with this book it's child's play to see through them.
