Books That Shaped Art History

Books That Shaped Art History


A collection of essays on 16 of the most influential books of art history published during the 20th century, this book provides an insightful view of the history of art, told through its most enduring literature.

Including 54 illustrations, each of the essays looks at the impact of a single major book of art history; from Émile Mâle’s magisterial study of thirteenth-century French art, first published in 1898, to Hans Belting’s provocative Likeness and Presence: A History of the Image before the Era of Art, this volume examines each book's significance and position in the history of art.
