Abstract

Research has shown that there are asymmetries in art (e.g., brightness is biased to the left). We explored whether certain attributes are asymmetrically represented in art in a fashion that is consistent with known functional hemispheric asymmetries (e.g., logical processing and left hemisphere dominance/rightward art asymmetry). Participants viewed left and right halves of paintings, one presented above the other (counterbalanced), and rated which half displayed more of certain attributes. Results showed that ratings of left and right hemi-art differed in a way that may be explained by asymmetries in hemispheric processing. Up/down counterbalancing was also related to some ratings.
