Meaning in the Visual Arts : Papers in and on Art History by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

172 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 2,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its original publication, Erwin Panofsky's Meaning in the Visual Arts has been standard reading for students of art history. It is both an introduction to the study of art and, for those with more specialized interests, a profound discussion of art and life in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Panofsky's historical technique reveals an abundance of detail, detail he skillfully relates to the life and work of individual painters and their times. The papers in this volume represent a cross-section of Panofsky's major work. Included are selections from his well-known Studies in Iconology and The Life and Art of Albrecht Durer, plus an introduction and an epilogue--"The History of Art as a Humanistic Discipline" and "Three Decades of Art History in the United States: Impressions of a Transplanted European"--As well as pieces written especially for this collection. All display Panofsky's vast erudition and deep commitment to a humanistic conception of art and art history
Renaissance and renascences in Western art by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

157 editions published between 1960 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 2,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renaissance and Renascences in Western Art spans the period from the 10th to the 15th century, including discussion of the Carolingian renaissance and the 12th century proto-renaissance. Erwin Panofsky posits that there were "reanscences" prior to the widely known Renaissance that began in Italy in the 14th century. Whereas earlier renascences can be classified as revivals, the Renaissance was a unique instance that led to a wider cultural transformation
Gothic architecture and scholasticism by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

178 editions published between 1951 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 2,597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erwin Panofksy was one of the great scholars of the twentieth century. Panofsky modestly described his second annual Wimmer Lecture at Saint Vincent College as "another diffident attempt at correlating Gothic architecture and scholasticism," but it has remained in print in numerous languages for more than half a century. His lecture stands as a brilliant man's tribute to the legacy of Christian humanism
Studies in iconology : humanistic themes in the art of the Renaissance by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

127 editions published between 1939 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 2,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Themes and concepts of Renaissance art are analysed and related to both classical and medieval tendencies
The Life and art of Albrecht Dürer by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

105 editions published between 1943 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 2,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic text presents the life, times, and works of Albrecht Durer. Through the skill and immense knowledge of Erwin Panofsky, the reader is dazzled not only by Durer the artist but also Durer in a wide array of other roles, including mathematician and scientific thinker. Originally published in 1943 in two volumes, The Life and Art of Albrecht Durer met with such wide popular and scholarly acclaim that it led to three editions and then, in 1955, to the first one-volume edition. Without sacrifice of text or illustrations, the book was reduced to this single volume by the omission of the Handlist and Concordance. The new introduction by Jeffrey Chipps Smith reflects upon Panofsky the man, the tumultuous circumstances surrounding the creation of his masterful monograph, its innovative contents, and its early critical reception. Erwin Panofsky was one of the most important art historians of the twentieth century. Panofsky taught for many years at Hamburg University but was forced by the Nazis to leave Germany. He joined the faculty at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1935, where he spent the remainder of his career and wrote The Life and Art of Albrecht Durer. He developed an iconographic approach to art and interpreted works through an analysis of symbolism, history, and social factors
Pandora's box; the changing aspects of a mythical symbol by Dora Mosse Panofsky( Book )

96 editions published between 1935 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 2,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Study of the myth of Pandora, its representation in art, and its mythological and religious significance
Early Netherlandish painting, its origins and character by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

75 editions published between 1947 and 1980 in 4 languages and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I have not attempted a presentation of Early Netherlandish Painting in its entirety ... but concentrated my efforts on Hubert and Jan van Eyck, the Master of Flémalle and Roger van der Weyden ... Like my previous book on Albrecht Dürer, this study has grown out of a series of public lectures - in this case, the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures delivered at Harvard University in 1947-1948"--Preface, v. 1, p. vii
Abbot Suger on the Abbey Church of St.-Denis and its art treasures by Sugerius( Book )

44 editions published between 1946 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perspective as symbolic form by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

125 editions published between 1927 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a body of learning that ranges over antique philsophy, theology, science and optics as well as the history of art, the author produces a type of "archaeology" of Western representation. He demonsrates how the perceptual schema of each historical culture or epoch is unique
Tomb sculpture; four lectures on its changing aspects from ancient Egypt to Bernini by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

45 editions published between 1964 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting with Egypt and pursuing the theme of funerary art through its fascinating cultural expressions - Greek, Roman, Early Christian, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, to the great monuments of the Baroque - Tomb Sculpture reveals the many faces that memorials have taken. Each of these looks in some way familiar to us, however exotic its origin, for each one carried in its day a meaning that has never been absent in our lives. Dr. Panofsky's exploration of tomb sculpture through the ages, from many religions, countries, and cultures, enriches our understanding of these monuments in countless ways. With wisely chosen analogies from poetry, philosophy, and even music, he broadens our view as he brings nearer to us the common range of our human experience. Abrams is proud to reissue this classic volume, which has long been unavailable. It includes a new foreword by Professor Martin Warnke of Hamburg, a well-known art historian and co-founder of the magazine Idea
Saturn and melancholy; studies in the history of natural philosophy, religion and art [by] Raymond Klibansky, Erwin Panofsky and Fritz Saxl by Raymond Klibansky( Book )

59 editions published between 1964 and 2020 in English and French and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An augmented edition of the famed interdisciplinary study on saturnine melancholy. Saturn and Melancholy remains an iconic text in art history, intellectual history, and the study of culture generally, despite being long out of print in English. Co-authored by Raymond Klibansky, Erwin Panofsky, and Fritz Saxl and rooted in the tradition established by Aby Warburg and the Warburg Library, this book has deeply influenced the understanding of the interrelations among humanities disciplines since its first publication in English in 1964. This study offers an unparalleled inquiry into the origin and development of the philosophical and medical theories on which the ancient conception of the Temperaments was based, and their connections to astrological concepts and religious ideas. Representations of melancholy are traced in literature and the arts up to the sixteenth century culminating in an illuminating analysis of Dürer's most famous engraving, Melencolia I. Following the success of Italian, French, and German versions of the work in intervening years, this new edition overseen by Philippe Despoix and Georges Leroux makes available for the first time in decades the original English published text. It is complemented by a new introduction and bibliographical amendments undertaken by Raymond Klibansky after the death of his co-authors, as well as supplemental translations of source material and extensive illustrations which inform the volume's landmark iconographic analysis. Completing this new edition is a new and thorough history of the complex publication history of this pathbreaking collective publication project of the Warburg Library--which almost never saw the light of day--covering more than 80 years, including the rich heritage of this work in the decades after its original publication."--
Idea : a concept in art theory by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

14 editions published between 1968 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Problems in Titian, mostly iconographic : the Wrightsman Lectures under the auspices of the New York University Institute of Fine Arts delivered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, N.Y. by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Titian's fame as the greatest colorist in the history of painting has led students of his art to concentrate on problems of style and authenticity rather than on problems of content and meaning. Dr. Panofsky treats this neglected aspect of the Venetian master's work with a wealth of humanistic scholarship, exploring such varied topics as Titian's relationship to the philosophy and literature of his time, his attitude toward the antique, and the reasons behind his unrivaled acclaim as a portraitist. These studies show Titian to have been a man of far richer and more complex culture than hitherto assumed, possessed not only of the supremely gifted hand but of a subtle and poetic mind. Dr. Panofsky thus deepens our insight into the workings of a great artist's imagination and guides us to a fuller understanding of his genius. At the time Dr. Panofsky was preparing this book for publication, he wrote: "The illustrations were made from the best available originals and are all in black-and-white not in spite of but because of the fact that Titian was the greatest colorist that ever lived."--Book jacket
Three essays on style by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erwin Panofsky, a preeminent art historian who spent many years teaching at Princeton, wrote these essays originally as public lectures to be delivered to non-academic audiences. And while the material is dense in the sense of being packed with information, it is also entertaining. A notable intellectual romp is the essay, "Ideological Antecedents of the Rolls-Royce Radiator," an eccentric essay remarking on how such influences as cathedral architecture and illuminated manuscripts somehow led to the famous car radiator that Panofsky reveres as the summation of "twelve centuries of Anglo-Saxon preoccupations and aptitudes."
The Codex Huygens and Leonardo da Vinci's art theory; the Pierpont Morgan Library, Codex M.A. 1139 by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

55 editions published between 1940 and 1976 in English and Danish and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered to be the work of Leonardo when it was acquired by Constantine Huygens in 1690, this illustrated manuscript does not in fact contain a single original drawing by Leonardo da Vinci. Its authorship still in question, this mid sixteenth-century work has been attributed to, among others, Aurelio Luini, Girolamo Figino, and Carlo Urbino

Die Gestaltungsprincipien Michelangelos, besonders in ihrem Verhältnis zu denen Raffaels by Erwin Panofsky( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erwin Panofsky's Habilitation thesis, which was previously believed lost and was discovered quite by surprise in June 2012 at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich, will be published by De Gruyter in 2014. The work, titled Die Gestaltungsprincipien Michelangelos, besonders in ihrem Verhältnis zu denen Raffaels, was never published, and may well be regarded as a milestone in the academic history of the field of art history. The epochal work is to be edited by Gerda Panofsky. De Gruyter will be publishing it accompanied by Gerda Panofsky's own biography about her late husband's early life, school, and student years, along with his conceptual sketches from the years 1915-17 that have been preserved in manuscript form
