Bibliophile, scholar, founder of what would become the Warburg Institute, Aby Warburg (1866-1929) ranks as one of the most original and brilliant art historians of this century. Warburg looked beyond iconography to more psychological aspects of artistic creation, and in particular he contemplated the meaning of the re-use of ancient motifs. His scholarship--published in German in 1932 in two volumes encompassing all of his published essays along with manuscript notes in his working copies--has had a crucial influence on the work of twentieth-century art historians. Now, with the publication of this new translation of The Renewal of Pagan Antiquity, these seminal volumes are available in their entirety in English for the first time.
