Congratulations #1: Hans-Christian Hönes Kunst am Ursprung: Das Nachleben der Bilder und die Souveränität des Antiquars (Bielefeld: Transcript, 2014)

Congrats 1 The ‘Bilderfahrzeuge’ project brings together researchers working on a wide range of topics. So far, there has been no shortage of exciting conversations crossing periods, disciplinary lines and geographical regions of study. The idea of such a research ecosystem, in which individual projects overlap and intersect with shared interests and aims, is one of the things which makes this project so exhilarating. While conversations go on in the background and inform and develop research, however, it is in publications, exhibitions and other public outputs that the results are most often seen (and where the day-to-day hard work so often is spent). In this first ‘Congratulations’, therefore, we would all like to applaud Hans-Christian on the release of his book, Kunst am Ursprung: Das Nachleben der Bilder und die Souveränität des Antiquars (Bielefeld: Transcript, 2014), emerging from his doctoral research.

The study, examining the image theories and historical approaches of nineteenth-century antiquarians such as Pierre d’Hancarville and Richard Payne Knight, traces the legacy of this unique period of speculative and adventurous art historical writing into the literature of key figures in the modern discipline, in particular, Aby Warburg.
