This new translation, which renders Riegl\'s seminal work in contemporary, readable prose, allows for a fresh reexamination of his thought in light of current revisionist debate.\" \"His discovery of infinite variation in the restatement of several decorative motifs - the palmette, rosette, tendril - led Riegl to believe that art is completely independent from exterior conditions and is beyond individual volition.
