Tomb sculpture; four lectures on its changing aspects from ancient Egypt to Bernini by Erwin Panofsky( )

29 editions published between 1964 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a distinguished quartet of lectures by the late Erwin Panofsky, universally acknowledged as one of the twentieth century's leading interpreters of the meaning of works of art. In the text of these lectures Dr. Panofsky illuminates the world of tomb sculpture, an art form that has existed since the dawn of civilization, as its imagery expresses humankind's hopes and fears in the face of death, the striving for immortality. Many readers will need no introduction to the scholarship and humanism of Dr. Panofsky, who was Professor Emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. The uninitiated will find in these lectures a marvelous blend of learning and entertainment, splendidly illustrated by 471 black-and-white photographs. The variety and beauty of these reproductions are themselves breathtaking
