A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1764, Johann Joachim Winckelmann published a key early instance of art-historical thinking, his Geschichte der Kunst des Alterthums , here translated into English for the first time. Dazzled by the sensuous and plastic beauty of recently excavated artifacts - coins, engraved gems, vases, paintings, reliefs, and statues - Winckelmann synthesized the visual and written evidence then available into a systematic history of art in ancient Egypt, Persia, Etruria, Rome, and, above all, Greece. His passionate yet detailed inquiry investigates the idea of beauty over time and space, offering a chronological and descriptive account whose conceptual and historical paradigms have been reiterated and contested into the twentieth century. Alex Potts s introduction not only sketches the circumstances that shaped Winckelmann s project but also assesses this scholar s indelible influence on European intellectual life - for both modern art history and archaeology commence with Winckelmann.
