Review-uri 3 In lumea intreaga, cititorii de toate varstele si de toate tipurile au vazut in prof. Gombrich un adevarat maestru care imbina cunoasterea si intelepciunea cu talentul unic de a-si exprima deschis dragostea profunda pentru operele de arta pe care le descrie. Istoria artei isi datoreaza popularitatea caracterului direct si simplu al scrierii, precum si priceperii autorului de a expune o naratiune clara. Cand o admiri la Luvru, e greu sa te gandesti la aceasta opera ca la o statuie din piatra, rece si fara viata.

Start your review of Istoria artei Write a review Shelves: favorites , nonfiction , unforgettable Reflecting on my reading year , I came to think of books that have meant a lot to me over the past decades, and the first one that came to my mind was Gombrichs excellent introduction to art history.
I will have to go back twenty years, half my life, to the year I am twenty years old, and just about to discover the pleasurable adventure called university. I probably spend hours there. I can still feel the time pass, while I look, think, go through history, art, literature. I pick a book, then another one, and more still, until I have to bring one back. Gift card value is weighed against all these lovely, lovely possibilities.
What do I pick? Some time between and now, it falls victim to one of our many moves between cities and countries. I bought it out of duty. I choose one extravaganza: Gombrich. A German hardback copy, beautifully illustrated, taking a huge chunk of the gift card money. I start reading as soon as I come home. And almost magically, it opens up the world of art to me.
I discover the world through a visual prism. Ever since then, Gombrich has followed my path. I want to read it aloud to my children, and they are only used to their father reading in German, and me in Swedish.
So in order not to confuse them more than necessary in their Babylonian curse, I read it in Swedish, the stolen goods. And what a help that has been in the many museums around the world that my children have visited over the years. Two years ago, my eldest son wants a copy - in English, in order to be able to quote from it.
So we have three copies, and I would not be beyond buying one in French, at a shop in the Louvre, maybe, just for the silliness of owning a favourite in so many different shapes. For they are all slightly different in layout, but equally satisfying visually and textually. I still recommend it to whoever wants a clear, concise, lovable account of the history starting with cave paintings in Lascaux, and moving forwards still, mirroring humanity in its need to express ideas, thoughts and feelings through the medium of art.
And YES, we have it in English as well!
