The Origin of Perspective

£70.00

Product description

In part a response to Panofsky's Perspective as Symbolic Form, The Origin of Perspective is much more. In France it is considered one of the most important works of art history to have appeared in the last twenty years. With the exception of Foucault's analysis of Las Meninas, it is perhaps the first time a structuralist method such as the one developed by Claude Levi-Strauss in The Way of the Masks has been thoroughly and convincingly applied to Western art.
