Description

Commissioned by the editors of the "Burlington Magazine", and written by leading art historians and curators, this book provides an invaluable roadmap of the field by re-examining the canonical works of art history. It looks at the foundational texts of the discipline, from Emile Males magisterial 1898 study of thirteenth-century French art to Hans Beltings provocative Likeness and Presence in 1990. Offering a critical re-examination of each book and the ideas and personalities that informed it, "The Books That Shaped Art History" provides a bold and insightful overview of the discipline, as told through its most enduring literature.
