The illusion of movement (stricto sensu definition of vertigo) is a sensory experience particularly badly experienced by the patient who undergoes a sudden alteration of his vestibular system, putting badly the representation of his body into space. This illusion of movement is sometimes sought in pictorial art and is likely to affect the spectator. The resulting aesthetic emotion of the visual function is better analyzed and integrated in neurophysiological research. This example of a visual perception of an induced movement (in the absence of real movement) makes us more conscious of the wonderful faculty of the brain to create emotion from integration of multiple neural messages. After a reminder of the physiology of the visual perception of movement, we will give different examples of pictorial art that illustrate the quest by some painters to create emotion through a contemplation of their works.
