Renaissance Art and Science

To complete a book dealing with the role of the artist and art theorist of the period of roughly 1350-1550 in the development of the empirical study of nature and of the natural science. This was a period in which the empirical investigation of the natural world was being emphasized and representational skills of artists became central to scientific enterprise, and artists were to be foound wherever science advanced. The aim is to represent a revolution in the process of seeing, or more specifically, of perception, that came about in that period.
