Abstract:
This study shows that the historiographical understanding of the life and work of Erwin Panofsky, that most ‘famous’ of art historians, remains curiously unresolved, and that the unsatisfactory nature of this appraisal centres upon just how Panofsky’s scholarship developed after 1933, when he was forced to migrate from his home in Germany to the United States of America. Utilising Panofsky’s correspondence this study then provides a contextualised re-evaluation of Panofsky’s experience of acculturation in America, and the effect of this acculturation upon the development of his work.
