Aby Warburg, Nicholas Mann, Benedetta Cestelli Guidi.

He is known not simply for his pioneering scholarship of Italian Renaissance art and culture, but for the totality of his approach, the interest he took in the whole process of what anthropologists now call symbolization, the creation of symbols by societies to represent their world.

These largely unpublished photographs, some only recently discovered, were taken by Aby Warburg on his trip to the American frontier in 1895. Neither a photographer nor a native tourist, Warburg was a scholar with a camera. As seen though his own cultural and psychological perspective on art, these insightful photographs are significant not only to the study of Native American and frontier life, but also to an understanding of Warburg's unique vision of cultural history. 80 duotone photos.
