Format: Hardcover
Having just begun an art history course, I am happy to have been introduced to Erwin Panofsky. This book is wonderful for experts and beginners alike, as it does not assume the reader has any foreknowledge of iconography, but it does not bore the reader who does. The imagery in this book is beautiful, and brings to life painting that may otherwise seem from another time. Wonderful examples throughout. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the underlying symbolism in art.

Still a classic; still indispensable. One should read the world, not just a painting, according to Panofsky's table. I mean: one's "equipment for interpretation" should be a "familiarity with the essential tendencies of the human mind", conditioned (introspectively) by one's own personal experience.

Split the atom!

there are not many that can write about art the way Panofsky does. depth and breadth of amazing proportions with a skill in writing matching a poet.
