Citizen Spectator cover

​​​Professor Wendy Bellion has published Citizen Spectator: Art, Illusion, a​nd Visual Perception in Early National America (University of North Carolina Press, 2011), a study of pictorial and optical illusions in the early United States. Published with the support of the Wyeth Foundation for American Art and a National Endowment for the Humanities Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, the book investigates Americans' encounters with illusionistic art in the early republic, arguing that early national exhibitions doubled as spaces of citizen formation. Bellion also reflected on the pleasures of trompe l'oeil in "Slow Art," a recent essay for the online academic journal Common-place.org.
