More Than Meets the Eye: Seeing Art with All Five Senses by Bob Raczka, a companion to his No One Saw: Ordinary Things Through the Eyes of an Artist and Art Is..., asks sensory questions. ""Have you ever tasted a painting?"" seems a logical question when accompanied by Apples in a Tin Pail (1892) by Levi Wells Prentice. The Banjo Lesson by Henry Ossawa Tanner (1893) illustrates sound and James Wyeth's Portrait of a Pig captures the sense of smell. This lighthearted appreciation of the art world takes readers through the five senses, with reproductions of paintings that may well stimulate them all.
