The author of this book is well known as a psychologist of the modern school, more concerned with facts than with theories. He has collected and summarized most of what may be gathered as to the special psychology of artists, at the same time adding fresh material, the fruit of his own observations. He deals with the anatomical and physiological characters of artists, with the quality of their vision and their memory; with their heredity; while the concluding section is devoted to the pathology of the painter. The book altogether forms a readable chapter in psychology, but, as may be anticipated in the first attempt to deal comprehensively with a new subject, the conclusions reached are not usually very definite.
