The Allure Of Illusionism: Trompe L'Oeil In Contemporary American Painting, Steven W. Rosen, Rose M. Milovich

Exhibit Catalogues

The creators of trompe l'oeil works, whether drawings, paintings, or three-dimensional objects are less concerned with replicating reality using pictorial devices such as perspective, and instead concentrate their efforts on precisely rendering the richness of the material world.
