We evaluated the productions of an artist with frontotemporal lobar degeneration from before dementia onset until she was fully symptomatic. We noted an improvement of technique that might be related to sparing and disinhibition of the right posterior neocortex. There was a reduction of closure (completeness of the painting), possibly induced by impersistence and a decrease in evocative impact that might be explained by frontal and anterotemporal-limbic dysfunction.
