Description: The Critical Historians of Art
The major transformations in the philosophy of history and in aesthetics in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Germany played an important part in the development of the subsequent historiography of art. In this important book, Michael Podro provides the first extensive critical account of the work of the figures of that era who made the fundamental contributions to the field. He discusses and analyzes the work of Semper, Riegel, Wolfflin, Warburg, and Panofsky, linking their concerns to the basic philosophical problems of art and aesthetics formulated by Kant, Schiller, and Hegel.
