La Quête de l'essentiel
By Semir Zeki & Balthus
This book contains material from conversations collected over three years. It presents two different visions of the world of Art: that of the painter Balthus, spontaneous, synthetic, often cutting through the universe of the great Masters, and that of Zeki, the neurophysiologist, more analytic in nature. Together they reveal the mental processes that lie behind an artistic masterpiece.
