Art and Illusion | Ernst Hans Gombrich

This is a fundamental book. It studies the question of verisimilitude between image and object and the means by which it is constructed. It studies the weight of conventions and the role of learning and mental operations that contribute too much to our assessment of the visual stimuli we receive. Vision is posited as cultural as well as physiological action.
