ART HISTORY REVISITED

Overview

The 14 essays in Art History Revisited follow a general course from the historiography of philosophy to the historiography of art and aesthetics to analyses of individual artists like Antoine Watteau and Gerald Folkerts and the theory and practice of artist/aestheticians like William Hogarth and Anton Raphael Mengs. As this selection of essays attests, Seerveld is both well-versed in the history of art and has made significant contributions to the field as well.

The image on the cover—Henry Moore’s large watchful woman of brown Horton stone (Reclining Figure, 1929)—portrays the rugged strength of mountainous terrain that lasts for ages. As Seerveld writes: “A fertile mother not to be trifled with. Sprawling art history too needs to be respected and well understood.”
