Heinrich Wolfflin was a pioneering critic who introduced new and rigorous methods of formal analysis into the study of art. Classic Art, first published in 1899, is itself a classic that has exercised a profound influence on the way people have looked at and thought about art. As an appraisal of the great artists of the Renaissance it can hardly be surpassed. Once again available in its elegant original format, it is an indispensable addition to any library.
