Sir Ernst Gombrich (1909-2001) was one of the greatest and least conventional art historians of his age, achieving fame and distinction in three separate spheres: as a scholar, as a popularizer of art and as a pioneer of the application of the psychology of perception to the study of art. His best-known book, The Story of Art, first published 50 years ago and now in its 16th edition, is one of the most influential books aver written about art.

Richard Woodfield is Professor of Aesthetics and Art Theory at Nottingham Trent University, and the editor of Reflections on the History of Art, a collection of E H Gombrich's book reviews.
Autobiographical; the visual image; art and psychology; tradition and innovation; psychology and the decorative arts; primitivism and the primitive; on the nature of art history; alternatives to the "Spirit of Age"; on the meanings of works of art; high art and popular culture; Gombrich from within tradition.
"To read these essays is to feel in close touch with a rare and crucial thing, a large mind at full tilt, curious, ambitious and civilized."-The New York Times
