dc.description.abstractThe author discusses two approaches to art history: what she calls “object-oriented” art history and “social empirical” art history. She focuses on the appeal of 17th Century Dutch painting to 19th and 20th Century Americans and the academic work of art historians Erwin Panofsky, Svetlana Alpers, and her own grandfather, or “Opa,” Egbert Haverkamp-Begemann. Looking to the future of art history, she also reflects on her own introduction to art from her Opa and includes an interview with him.en_US
