The pursuit of iconography and quest for symbols and similar energies in art and ritual culture still remain prominent in the writing of working Warburgians. However, Warburg himself gains popularity now too among historians who find interest in his techniques (montage work and avoidance of narrative) and M. makes similar claims for Warburg's relevance to cinema and film theory.
Spanning biography, analysis, theory and history, this book is most handsomely produced (gorgeous b/w plates), utterly readable, and completely cogent.
