Born in Vienna in 1909, Ernst Hans Josef Gombrich moved to London in 1936, where he published many books and essays on the history of art but was also deeply concerned with the questions of value and tradition in culture. Beginning with an autobiographical sketch, this collection comprises 14 essays on topics that include architectural conservation, the photographs of Cartier-Bresson, the intellectual origins of Cubism and the place of the humanities in education.
