Edgar Wind (1900-1971), German-born art historian, cultural historian, and philosopher, emerges as one of the most brilliant thinkers of his remarkable generation, and is acknowledged to be one of the 'greats' of twentieth-century art history. A student of Panofsky and Cassirer in Hamburg he was profoundly influenced by the thought of C. S. Peirce, and more, especially, Aby Warburge. He taught in the United States, and was also the first Professor of the History of Art at the University of Oxford. He first turned his attention to Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling in the mid-1930s. Dr Elizabeth Sears is Associate Professor, Department of the History of Art, University of Michigan, formerly Assistant Professor, Department of Art and Archaology (1982-89). Her recent fellowships include: 2000 Getty Fellow, Getty Research Institute and 1995 Visiting Fellowship, All Souls College, Oxford. She has a longstanding interest in Warburgian art history, and was trained by Wind's contemporary, William Heckscher, another of Panofsky's early students. Dr John W. O'Malley is Professor of Church History, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a scholar of Renaissance theology.
`Wind himself writes with intellectual energy of the same order as is evinced in the paintings that are his subject matter.'
