Meditations on a heritage : papers on the work and legacy of Sir Ernst Gombrich by Peter Burke( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That Ernst Gombrich was one of the most important art historians of the 20th century would seem to go without saying. And so one might expect him to feature prominently in the numerous surveys, guides and introductions to the history and methods of art history produced during the past two decades. Precisely the opposite, however, is the case. One reason for this certainly was that Gombrich was an avowed enemy of "big ideas", interested not in generalizations but in the specifics of individual cases. Avoiding jargon or rhetoric, standing for "common sense", he always argued from clear premises, and his thought was also very wide-ranging. He never "owned" a subject, remarking "It cannot be too often repeated that the best tribute one can pay a scholar is to take him seriously and constantly to reappraise his lines of argument." The importance of Gombrich's work on the history of taste has yet to be fully recognized, and when it comes to the application of developments in psychology to the visual arts he has remained largely, among art historians, on his own. These essays assess the nature of his empiricism, the degree to which his ideas have been adopted, overturned or developed, and his contribution to the dialogue of art and perception

The enigma of Piero : Piero della Francesca by Carlo Ginzburg( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Enigma of Piero is a book about painting written by a historian. Carlo Ginzburg painstakingly sifts the evidence to produce a fascinating portrait of Piero's patrons and convincing explanations for the contemporary intrigues resonant in his paintings - in particular The Baptism, The Arezzo Cycle, and the mysterious Flagellation." "Apparently trivial details - a hat, a column, the turn of a hand - lead Ginzburg into the archives to discover remarkable new chains of evidence. Making Ginzburg's impressive argument even more compelling, this new edition includes additional material dealing with the work of Roberto Longhi, the dating of The Arezzo Cycle and the rediscovery of Piero della Francesca in the twentieth century."--Jacket

Eyewitnessing : the uses of images as historical evidence by Peter Burke( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What place do images hold among other kinds of historical evidence? In Eyewitnessing, Peter Burke reviews graphics, photographs, films and other media from many countries and periods and examines their pragmatic uses. This profusely illustrated book surveys the opportunities and the challenges of using images to understand other times." "In a thorough and compelling defence of the importance of the visual to history, Burke argues that images should not be considered mere reflections of their time and place, but rather extensions of the social contexts in which they were produced. The author describes and evaluates the methods by which art historians have traditionally analyzed images and finds them insufficient to deal with the complexities of visual imagery." "In developing a richer mode of visual interpretation, Burke devotes much attention to religious icons and narratives as well as to propaganda posters, caricatures and maps. Eyewitnessing, also addresses the economics of images - some, such as films, are commodities in themselves, while others are created to advertise other products. Concentrating on the representation of social groups, the author explores stereotypes as well as notions of foreignness and gender. In this wide-ranging, highly accessible volume, Burke helps us to understand the promise and the pitfalls of using visual evidence in the writing of history."--Jacket
