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

245 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,088 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 )

221 editions published between 1960 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,993 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 )

218 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,635 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

Early Netherlandish painting, its origins and character by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

90 editions published between 1947 and 1980 in 4 languages and held by 2,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book had a wide impact on studies of Renaissance art and Early Netherlandish painting in particular, but also studies in iconography, art history, and intellectual history in general. The book is particularly well-known for its iconographic treatment of Van Eyck's Arnolfini Portrait as a kind of marriage contract. The book remains influential despite its reliance on black-and-white reproductions of paintings, which led to some errors of analysis."--The books that shaped art history (p. 95)

Three essays on style by Erwin Panofsky( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 734 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."
