Art History Through the Camera's Lens
Helene E. Roberts
Gordon and Breach, 1995 - Art - 415 pages
Photography of art has served as a basis for the reconstruction of works of art and as a vehicle for the dissemination and reinterpretation of art. This book provides the first definitive treatment of the subject, with essays from noted authorities in the fields of art history, architecture, and photography. The essays explore the many meanings of photography as documentation for the art historian, inspiration for the artist, and as a means of critical interpretation of works of art. "Art History Through the Camera's Lens" will be important reading for students, historians, librarians, and curators of the visual arts.
