Description
Art historian specializing in Byzantine, early Christian, and early medieval art. The papers document Kitzinger's scholarly contribution to the history of late antique, early Christian, Byzantine, and early medieval art. The collection consists of offprints of his published work, research materials, lecture materials, teaching files, and photographs and slides.
Background
Ernst Kitzinger, an art historian specializing in Byzantine, early Christian, and early medieval art, was born in Munich, Germany on December 27, 1912. He wrote and lectured on a wide variety of artistic media, but is perhaps best known for his scholarship on Byzantine mosaics. The diverse research topics that make up his life's work are informed by the premise that form has meaning and that changes in form and style have something to tell us about what is happening in the society of that time.
