Notes to Introduction
1.
A panorama of this kind, unequaled in artistic plasticity and lucidity was given by Jacob Burckhardt in his Kultur der Renaissance in Italien. Since the era of historism, research in the various special fields, has been advanced so much that any attempt to draw a comprehensive picture is bound to fail. (The book of Dagobert Frey, Gotik und Renaissance, Augsburg, 1929, offers an example.) The task of the historian of our time is to keep strictly to the problems of his proper field, but to demonstrate them under the visual angle of the cultural totality of which they form a part.
2.
First published in the Historische Zeitschrift, 1918 (volume 119). Republished in volume 1 of the posthumous edition of the scholar's writings, Kunstgeschichte als Geistesgeschichte ( Munich, 1923).
3.
Edited by Johannes Wilde and Karl M. Swoboda under the title Geschichte der italienischen Kunst im Zeitalter der Renaissance, 2 vols. ( Munich, 1927-29).
