Chapter Summary

In 1976, Jan Białostocki, professor of art history at Warsaw University, published The Art of the Renaissance in Eastern Europe: Hungary, Bohemia, Poland. An outgrowth of Białostockis Wrightsman Lectures, delivered in the autumn of 1972 at the Metropolitan Museum in Art in New York. Schlosser Magnino, as he called himself after his Italian mother, succeeded Max Dvořk at Vienna University in 1922. For Julius von Schlosser, at the end of his career, the history of art was mostly the history of individual artists. It is fitting that Schlosser should have been the last Viennese art historian who firmly attached himself to Italy and its humanistic tradition. Another scholar whom Jan Białostocki held in high personal regard throughout his life was Erwin Panofsky. It is generally known that Białostocki became the most dedicated promoter of iconology and its humanistic background behind the Iron Curtain.
