John Onians and Neuroarthistory

Shelley Cordulack, professor of art history at Millikin University in Decatur, IL alerted me today to the work of John Onians, originator of the concept of neuroarthistory. Onians is Professor Emeritus at the University of East Anglia. His new book, Neuroarthistory: From Aristotle and Pliny to Boxandall and Zeki, explores the way in which artists think and how thought processes differ between time periods and locations. Thanks, Shelley!
