Overview

This book presents a distinguished quartet of lectures by the late Erwin Panofsky, universally acknowledged as one of the twentieth century's leading interpreters of the meaning of works of art. In the text of these lectures Dr. Panofsky illuminates the world of tomb sculpture, an art form that has existed since the dawn of civilization, as its imagery expresses humankind's hopes and fears in the face of death, the striving for immortality.
