Principles of art history; the problem of the development of style in later art by Heinrich Wölfflin( Book )

77 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 2,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the fundamental differences between classic and baroque art? Is there a pattern underlying the seemingly helter-skelter development of art in different cultures and at different times? What causes our entirely different reactions to precisely the same painting or to the same painter? In this now-classic treatise, published originally in Germany in the early 1920s, Professor Wölfflin provides an objective set of criteria to answer these and related questions. Examining such factors as style, quality, and mode of representation in terms of five opposed dynamisms (the linear vs. painterly, plane vs. recession, closed vs. open form, multiplicity vs. unity, and clearness vs. unclearness), the author analyzes the work of 64 major artists, delving even into sculpture and architecture. 150 illustrations of the work of Botticelli, van Cleve, Durer, Holbein, Brueghel, Bouts, Hals, Rembrandt, Velasquez, Titian, Vermeer, and other major figures accompany Professor Wölfflin's brilliant contributions to the methodology of art criticism. Whether you teach art, study it, or want to understand it purely for your own enjoyment, this epoch-making study will certainly increase your comprehension of and pleasure in the world's art heritage

Principles of art history : the problem of the development of style in early modern art by Heinrich Wölfflin( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Principles of Art History by Heinrich Wölfflin (1864-1945), a revolutionary attempt to construct a science of art through the study of the development of style, has been a foundational work of formalist art history since it was first published in 1915. At once systematic and subjective, and remarkable for its compelling descriptions of works of art, Wölfflin's text has endured as an accessible yet rigorous approach to the study of style. Although Wölfflin applied his analysis to objects of early modern European art, Principles of Art History has been a fixture in the theoretical and methodological debates of the discipline of art history and has found a global audience. With translations in twenty-four languages and many reprints, Wölfflin's work may be the most widely read and translated book of art history ever. This new English translation, appearing one hundred years after the original publication, returns readers to Wölfflin's 1915 text and images. It also includes the first English translations of the prefaces and afterword that Wölfflin himself added to later editions. Introductory essays provide a historical and critical framework, referencing debates engendered by Principles in the twentieth century for a renewed reading of the text in the twenty-first."--Publisher's description
Principes fondamentaux de l'histoire de l'art; le problème de l'évolution du style dans l'art moderne by Heinrich Wölfflin( Book )

48 editions published between 1952 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les Principes fondamentaux reposent sur une pensée dialectique, toujours en mouvement. Pour traduire les évolutions plastiques, ici le passage du classicisme au baroque, Wölfflin propose en effet cinq couples de catégories fondamentales, désormais célèbres, répondant aux critères de la "visualité pure" : linéaire et pictural, surface et profondeur, forme ouverte et forme fermée, pluralité et unité, clarté absolue et relative. D'aspects différents, elles traduisent pourtant une même réalité et n'existent que l'une par rapport à l'autre, dans des rapports contrastés. "Elles sont les pôles d'un devenir, d'un passage l'identique au contraire." Dans cette vision, les singularités de l'artiste s'effacent donc au profit des traits généraux de l'évolution artistique. L'interprétation capitale de Wölfflin est de celles, André Chastel le rappelait, "que chaque génération d'hommes cultivés doit sans doute se proposer de décrire à nouveau". La Vie des formes de Focillon, notamment, en offre un exemple fameux. Mais l'essentiel persiste : une traversée d'une rigueur exemplaire dans les formes du monde plastique à un moment donné. Son actualité reste évidente : la prédominance de plus en plus exclusive du catalogue monographique, dans l'histoire de l'art de la fin du XXe siècle, pourrait peut-être trouver des motifs d'infléchissement, à son tour, dans la redécouverte de Wölfflin, voire même une source de renouveau
Conceptos fundamentales en la historia del arte by Heinrich Wölfflin( Book )

70 editions published between 1924 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceptos fundamentales de la historia del arte responde a la necesidad de ordenar y conceptuar la gran cantidad de hechos y datos que surgen en el estudio del arte y su evolución histórica. A través de un rico análisis comparativo entre obras del Renacimiento y del Barrco, el crítico suizo Heinrich Wölfflin (1864-1945) llega a la caracterización de los dos estilos por la generalización de sus diferencias, que formula por pares de conceptos contrapuestos: lo lineal enfrentado a lo pictórico, lo superficial a lo profundo, la forma abierta a la cerrada, la pluralidad frente a la unidad, la claridad absoluta ante su atenuación como intento de concentrar y dirigir la percepción. Estas diferencias caracterizan tanto el estilo personal de un artista como un estilo de época. Wölfflin intenta así establecer las pautas para una Historia del Arte en la que se pueda seguir en sus distintas fases la génesis de la visión moderna en todas sus manifestaciones: pintura, escultura, decoración y arquitectura. Un libro clásico y de utilidad permanente por el entrenamiento que, con su capacidad analítica, proporcionará no solo a los estudiosos del arte, sino a los que simplemente quieran aprender a disfrutar de él
