Sight & insight: essays on art and culture in honour of E.H. Gombrich at 85
This book contains a collection of original essays by a group of Professor Gombrich's pupils. Masters now themselves and spread throughout the world, Gombrich's pupils have continued their independent researches and have achieved distinction in many fields. Not forming a 'school' in any narrow sense, they reflect the influence of their master rather in their range of interests and in a robust individualism. These essays, presented in affectionate tribute, will be read and re-read with interest and pleasure, not only by scholars but by admirers of Professor Gombrich worldwide.
