Karen Lang, associate professor of art history in USC College, explores the conceptual foundations of art history as a discipline, following different theories and points of view that have emerged over time. She examines key texts that have shaped the study of art history, looking specifically at the early years of the discipline in Germany from the 1880s to 1940. With numerous illustrations of important works of art from the period, she shows how aesthetic objects became both historical objects and objects of knowledge as the discipline emerged.
