Special issue of Art and Perception
On the perception and depiction of materials

In the art of painting the rendering of space has always been considered of great importance, and perspective, shading and foreshortening have been widely studied. The rendering of materials is quite another matter. It was equally deemed essential for the art painting in the past, but it has received little scholarly or scientific attention until now.

November last year a symposium was organised, The Skin of Things, devoted both to art historical and to perceptual aspects of the rendering of materials. The symposium was exciting, with high quality contributions by art historians, vision scientists and computer scientist.

A special edition of the peer reviewed journal Art and Perception has been planned for contributions on the subject of the symposium: the depiction and/or perception of material properties. The volume will be edited by Claus-Christian Carbon and Robert Pepperell, while Maarten Wijntjes and Jeroen Stumpel, will be added as guest editors for this issue.

This call for contributions is directed at all participants of our symposium, but other researchers are also very welcome to submit papers, provided these will clearly fit within the general topic.
The organizers are thinking of papers for instance on 17th century theories regarding the depiction and perception of materials; on the aesthetics of surface materials in various art periods; on computer rendering of surfaces; on the perception of gloss and highlights in nature and art; or, say, a topic like the biology of food perception in relation to the production of images. If you feel in doubt whether your contribution would fit our scope, feel free to contact us (J.F.H.J.Stumpel at uu.nl<mailto:J.F.H.J.Stumpel at uu.nl>, M.W.A.Wijntjes at tudelft.nl<mailto:M.W.A.Wijntjes at tudelft.nl>)

Contributions of about 3000 words are strongly preferred, with a maximum of 4500 (not including footnotes or bibliography). Pictures, graphs, diagrams and other such materials have to be provided for by the authors. Submitted papers will only be accepted after a peer review process, as is normally the case with Art and Perception. To submit your manuscript
