9780300063578: Shadows: The Depiction of Cast Shadows in Western Art (National Gallery London Publications)

In this lovely 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 discusses the way shadows were represented by seventeenth-century artists and then describes how Romantic, Impressionist, and Surrealist artists exploited the device of the cast shadow to enhance the illusion of realism or drama in their representations.
