La Boîte de Pandore by Dora Mosse Panofsky( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in French and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pandore est la première femme, le beau mal ; elle ouvre une boîte défendue ; en sortent tous les maux dont héritera l'humanité ; seule demeure l'espérance." D'Hésiode à Paul Klee, soit sur la totalité de l'arche de temps de l'art occidental, le mythe de Pandore accomplit son chemin. C'est ce parcours, avec ses longs silences, ses reprises, ses transformations, que le livre de Dora et Erwin Panofsky retrace. 0Le long de cette enquête si riche en pièces à conviction, le lecteur se retrouve, pour sa joie la plus grande, dans la posture de celui qui avance au sein d'une fiction : ce qui s'échappe de la boîte de Pandore ouverte par Erwin et Dora Panofsky, c'est la matière fictionnelle même, dans une pureté quasi originelle. Un nouvel essai du grand historien de l'art Erwin Panofsky, qui s'ajoute aux trois succès dans la collection Bibliothèque Hazan : Dürer, Titien et Les primitifs flamands
