With 251 illustrations. First paperback edition. For Rudolph Wittkower it was the fact that art communicated experience which made it a rewarding study, and nothing fascinated him more than the way in which one culture picked up and transformed the images of another. This, the third volume of 'The Collected Essays of Rudolph Wittkower', draws together fourteen essays in which he ranges far and wide in search of these 'migrating' symbols. It is vital reading for anyone interested in the History of Art or Cultural History. Each essay is each presented with its original illustrations and notes. 1.
