Main description: Lessing nannte ihn einen "Schriftsteller", Herder bezeichnete ihn als "Litterator und Altertumskenner". Schon zu seinen Lebzeiten (geb. 1717 in Stendal, gest. 1768 in Triest) galt Johann Joachim Winckelmann als der bedeutendste Kenner der antiken Kunst in Europa. Nach einer langen Zeit in Rom als unabhängiger Gelehrter und Bibliothekar, während der er engen Kontakt zur römischen Geisteswelt pflegte, bekleidete er in seinen letzten Jahren in Rom das Amt eines Oberaufsehers aller Altertümer in und um Rom. 1768 wurde er auf der Rückreise von Deutschland in Triest ermordet. Er gilt als einer der ersten Archäologen und Begründer der modernen Kunstwissenschaft. Seine Schriften zur antiken Kunst und zu deren Nachahmung sind auch heute noch faszinierende Standardlektüre. Die Neuauflage der Kleinen Schriften (1755-1763) zum günstigen Preis bietet eine hervorragende Gelegenheit, sich von einigen der wichtigsten und einflußreichsten Werke dieses klassischen Humanisten begeistern zu lassen. Deutlich tritt dabei seine immense kulturhistorische Bedeutung zutage. Wie sich das idealistische Antikenbild der deutschen Klassik und Romantik erst vor dem Hintergrund seiner bahnbrechenden "Gedanken über die Nachahmung der Griechischen Wercke" von 1755 erklärt, so wäre selbst noch Rilkes berühmtes Sonett auf den archaischen Torso Apollos ohne Winckelmanns Hymnus auf den belvederischen Apoll undenkbar. Der Band ist mit einem Geleitwort des Präsidenten der Winckelmann-Gesellschaft, Max Kunze, versehen und wird von dem Archäologen Hellmut Sichtermann eingeleitet. Wer sich darüber hinaus über die Quellen informieren möchte, der ist mit dem umfangreichen Kommentar des Literaturwissenschaftlers Walther Rehm auf das Beste versorgt

Johann Joachim Winckelmann : Letter ; and Report on the discoveries at Herculaneum by Johann Joachim Winckelmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation brings to light the early days of scientific archaeology and the unearthing and study of Herculaneum and Pompeii as observed by the erudite and acerbic art historian Johann Joachim Winckelmann (1717-1768). His Letter, published in German in 1762, displays his extensive knowledge of geology, ancient literature, and art while offering a scathing critique of the Spanish Bourbon excavations around the Bay of Naples and of the officials involved. He further discusses these topics in his equally controversial Report of 1764. The introduction describes the context in which these texts were written, identifies various politicians, academics, and collectors, and elucidates topics of particular interest to Winckelmann, from artifacts to local customs to the contents of ancient papyri. The illustrations, particularly those from the Bourbon publication--Le Antichità di Ercolano (1757-92)--illuminate how these monuments influenced contemporary perception of the ancient world."--

Kunstgeschichtliche Abhandlung
Johann Joachim Winckelmann on art, architecture, and archaeology by Johann Joachim Winckelmann( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johann Joachim Winckelmann (1717-1768) has long been recognized as one of the founders of modern art history and a major force in the development of archaeology and the study of ancient Greek architecture. He also exerted an influence on the Weimar Classicism of Goethe and Schiller, for whom his description of Greek sculpture as evoking "edle Einfalt und stille Grösse" (noble simplicity and a calm greatness) became a watchword. He contributed to modern scientific archaeology through his application of empirically derived categories of style to the analysis of classical works of art and architecture, and was one of the first to undertake detailed empirical examinations of artefacts and describe them precisely in a way that enabled reasoned conclusions to be drawn about ancient societies and their cultures. Yet several of his important essays are not available in modern English translation. The present volume remedies this situation by collecting four of Winckelmann's most seminal essays on art along with several shorter pieces on the topic, two major if brief essays on architecture, and one longer essay on archaeology. Paired with this is an introduction covering Winckelmann's life and work. David Carter is retired as Professor of Communicative English at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, and is former Lecturer in German Studies at the University of Southampton, UK. Among his recently published translations from German are Klaus Mann's novel Alexander (2008) and On Cocaine (2011), a collection of Sigmund Freud's writings on the topic
