About This Item

1971. Second Edition. London and New York, Phaidon, 1971. 18 cm x 25 cm. 308 pages including 186 illustrations. Original softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Somewhat grubby page-edges; worn corners. Clean inside with intact binding. Includes the following essays: The Renaissance Conception of Artistic Progress and its Consequences / Apollonio di Giovanni: A Florentine cassone workshop seen through the eyes of a humanist poet / Renaissance the Golden Age / The Early Medici as Patrons of Art / Leonardo's Method for Working out Compositions / Raphael's Madonna della Sedia / Norm and Form: The Stylistic Categories of Art History and their Origins in Renaissance Ideals / Mannerism: the Historiographic Background / The Renaissance Theory of Art and the Rise of Landscape / The Style all'antica: Imitation and Assimilation / Reynolds's Theory and Practice of Imitation. "Norm and Form is the first volume of E.H. Gombrich's highly influential collected contributions to the study of Renaissance art and thought. Its 11 essays deal with some of the most fundamental questions of style, patronage, taste, working methods and theories of art, presented with the author's customary learning and lucidity. Required reading for all students of the Renaissance, these essays are sure to be enjoyed by all who wish to deepen their understanding of one of the most creative periods of Western art." (Amazon) "Perhaps it is Professor Gombrich's wealth of wit, brilliance, and common sense which so commends his writings." (Yale Review) "Great learning is made enthralling by good writing." (Daily Telegraph)
