Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Approaches to the history of art are probably more varied and more debated than in any other branch of history, and a study of different historical approaches has become an important component of student courses.

Synopsis:

'Approaches' are probably more varied — and more debated — in the history of art than in any other branch of history, and a study of different historical approaches is becoming an increasingly important component of many student courses. In this anthology of art-historical writings from the Renaissance to the present day, key texts have been chosen in which the authors reflect on the nature of their subject and on their own methods of inquiry. Included are texts by Vasari, Winckelmann, Burckhardt, Wolfflin, Panofsky, Gombrich and Pollock, among others. The introduction gives a lucid and readable summary of art-historical methods, and each of the texts is accompanied by a commentary that places it in context and discusses the issues it raises. Also provided is a critical glossary of terms and a select bibliography.

Synopsis:

A companion volume to "Art in Modern Culture", this book introduces a selection of key texts from the Renaissance to the present day, exemplifying the wide variety of methods and approaches used by art historians. Included are texts by Gombrich, Vasari, Wolfflin and Pollack.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 369) and index.
