Author Biography - Vernon Hyde Minor

VERNON HYDE MINOR was the first to recognize and respond to the growing need for art historical theory made accessible at the introductory level, offering a reader-friendly introduction to historical writings about art history, including contemporary theory, and providing background on aesthetics to demonstrate that art history arises from general philosophical questions. Now in this second edition of his work, the author has expanded his survey to include the American critic Clement Greenberg, developed his treatment of New Art History and Visual Culture, and added a special essay on the learned art historian Erwin Panofsky and his contribution to Iconography and Iconology. Minor then considers the concepts of influence, originality, and greatness.
