 In addition to our built-in visual processes, each of us brings to a work of art our acquired memories: we remember other works of art that we have seen. We remember scenes and people that have meaning to us and relate the work of art to those memories. In order to see what is painted on a canvas, we have to know beforehand what we might see in a painting. These insights into perception served as a bridge between the visual perception of art and the biology of the brain.

So how does our brain respond to portraiture? As we look at a portrait, our brain calls on several interacting systems to analyze contours, form a representation of the face and of the body, analyze the body’s motion, experience emotion, and perhaps, empathy. Along with these instantaneous responses, we form a theory of the subject’s state of mind.

 
- the real “eye” of the beholder is the brain itself.

Advances in DNA testing, biochemical analysis and other scientific techniques have unlocked the secrets of the dead from their blood, hair, teeth and bones in ways they never could have imagined. We can now use exhumations to lay to rest persistent rumors about the locations and contents of famous graves, and clear people like poor Kepler of murder charges.
 
Exhumations can also tell us about the ailments of famous figures: fragments of Beethoven’s skull, left over from a 19th-century exhumation, have suggested that his poor health may have been the result of lead poisoning, and tests on Cosimo Medici’s bones showed he suffered from arthritis — not gout, as many historians had believed.
