Starting off with a discussion of how the discovery of perspective fundamentally altered the visual culture of the Renaissance, Kemp produces a fascinating history of images of the natural order shared by art and science. Seen and Unseen is a book for those who look to both art and science for new ways of understanding the world.
This richly illustrated, cutting-edge history of both art and science will itself provide a mini-history of visual innovation and scientific understanding from the Renaissance up to the present.
