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."

On the good ship lollipop : Frank O. Gehry's Fondation Louis Vuitton by Horst Bredekamp( Book )

13 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fondation Louis Vuitton by Frank O. Gehry rises from the Bois de Boulogne as a new landmark in the Parisian skyline. Gehry?s dynamic architecture is both glittering and multifaceted: is it a sailing vessel, an iceberg, or a sea monster? It fascinates with its wealth of references and, at the same time, escapes any clear-cut definition. Three outstanding representatives of different generations of art history, James S. Ackerman (?), Irving Lavin, and Horst Bredekamp have together paid a visit to the Fondation Louis Vuitton. They explore the building in three richly illustrated essays that try to fathom the floating architecture of the "magician" Gehry in the context of both art and architectural history
