The Eloquence of Symbols: Studies in Humanist Art

Synopsis

One of the most original art historians of the twentieth century, Edgar Wind (1900-1971) was the first Professor of the History of Art, University of Oxford. His astonishing familiarity with art and its history was allied with a knowledge of the ancient classics, of literature in several languages, and of philosophy and aesthetics. This first volume of his selected papers, published in 1983, is now reprinted in paperback for the first time with a revised and updated bibliography.
