Erwin Panofsky

This list is set to include some of the most important thinkers in the realm of Art History. Having begun as a subject of study in the German-speaking parts of Europe, the language used among art historians was notoriously difficult to understand – and many students of art history today may find themselves struggling to make sense of the big theories.

So our authors have grasped the nettle and start by looking at the life of each thinker, and the world around them, to see what kind of mind and person lay behind the ideas, before exploring those key theories in detail.

With each book in the Who the Hell is? series, the reader will be taken into the inner and outer worlds of the world's greatest thinkers, to discover just how and why they came up with such world-changing ideas.
