Every picture that is intended to represent something is a form of illusion, but some art techniques are more directly intended to trick the senses. This accessible art book explores the different ways in which artists throughout history have created visual deceptions, from trompe l'oeil frescoes in Roman villas and MC Escher's impossible perspectives to the surrealism of Rene Magritte and the Op art of Bridget Riley.
