Power of Images by David Freedberg

Book Description

"This learned and heavy volume should be placed on the shelves of every art historical library."--E. H. Gombrich, "New York Review of Books" "This is an engaged and passionate work by a writer with powerful convictions about art, images, aesthetics, the art establishment, and especially the discipline of art history. It is animated by an extraordinary erudition."--Arthur C. Danto, "The Art Bulletin" "Freedberg's ethnographic and historical range is simply stunning. . . . "The Power of Images" is an extraordinary critical achievement, exhilarating in its polemic against aesthetic orthodoxy, endlessly fascinating in its details. . . . This is a powerful, disturbing book."--T. J. Jackson, "Wilson Quarterly"
