Review:

To the extent that any art historian becomes "famous," Sir Ernst Gombrich is the most famous art historian in the world. He is the author of the seminal work The Story of Art, a staunch champion of the traditional canon, and a perceptive analyst of artistry and illusion. This massive collection includes essays, excerpts from the groundbreaking Art and Illusion, autobiographical notes, and reflections on artists from Raphael to Saul Steinberg. Gombrich is not a modernist, and he has been criticized for his misunderstanding of abstract painting; but his conceptions of art encompass modern psychology and history, the study of gesture and ornament, and the social history of art. Above all, Gombrich stands against sweeping generalizations, maintaining that works of art "are not the results of some mysterious activity, but objects made by human beings for human beings."

From the Back Cover:

Famous internationally as the author of The Story of Art, E.H. Gombrich is also widely known for his contributions to the ideas and debates of our age. This volume presents an accessible selection of his best and most characteristic writing, and introduces the general reader to his thoughts and arguments on many fundamental questions, including the nature of representation, the psychology of perception, the interpretation of images, problems of theory and method, the idea of progress, and symbolism and meaning in art.
