Inhaltsangabe: In part a response to Panofsky's Perspective as Symbolic Form, The Origin of Perspective is much more. In France it is considered one of the most important works of art history to have appeared in the last twenty years. With the exception of Michel Foucault's analysis of Las Meninas, it is perhaps the first time a structuralist method such as the one developed by Claude Lé¶©-Strauss in The Way of the Masks has been thoroughly and convincingly applied to Western art.
The task Damisch has set for himself is to refute both the positivist critics, whose approach makes up the bulk of perspective studies and is based on a complete repression of Panofsky's early work, and the current pseudo-avant-gardist position (whether in the field of cinema studies or in literary criticism), which tends to disregard facts and theoretical analysis. Damisch argues that if a theoretical analysis of perspective is possible, using all the tools of structuralist semiotics, it is only possible in the context of a close look at its appearance in history, beginning with the details of the "invention" of perspective.
About the Author: Hubert Damisch is on the faculty of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. Both art historian and philosopher, he is the author of Théorie du nuage and Fenêtre jaune cadmium.

Buchbeschreibung MIT Press, 1995. Soft cover. Buchzustand: Fine. Flawless copy of this important, out-of-print, hard-to-find, book. Perhaps the second time a structuralist method such as the one developed by Claude Levi-Strauss has been thoroughly and convincingly applied to Western art. "Was perspective an approximation to 'normal' perception of space, evolved in the 14th century, codified by Alberti, and rendered obsolete by Cezanne -- or is it a 'symbolic form,' one way of discoursing about space, which conditions perception, rather than merely describe it?".
