Article from Nature on painting

I’ve put an article in the media library about visual perception by (art historian) Martin Kemp, from the latest edition of Nature

  2. Thanks for this Julie.
    I’ve been messing about to get the link visible on the post. It’s there, still doesn’t directly download, but goes to an intermediary window. Bother!
    There is a link in the side column under PG research also. These links work for some people but not for others.
    One day I’ll solve it!

    • I know, it’s annoying – I’ve tried all the buttons, but all that happens is I end up with multiple copies of the article in the media library.

      I thought the article was interesting because it at least came from an arts perspective.

  3. I agree, in fact the conclusion is very close to what I’ve been considering for years. Its a conclusion arrived at by many feminist thinkers and for me also as a result of struggling with questions of art and valuing and considering these things in marginal contexts and broader human terms.

  4. Hi there, out there,

    I was able to access Julie’s article by Martin Kemp the PG research colume but not on the media library.

    I thought the ‘power of suggestion’ by experts an interesting point (p 2 col 2). I am sure individual psycho-physiological response to art is a worthwhile topic for expert investigation, but I wonder,whether knowing the answers, will complicate the natural act of creation for makers?
