Author Bio
E. H. Gombrich
Sir Ernst Hans Josef Gombrich was the son of a successful lawyer and a concert pianist. He received his education in Vienna, then moved to London and lectured at the University of London, as well as at Oxford, and Cambridge; he was also a research associate at the Warburg Institute, where he later became a director. His teaching career took him to Harvard, Cornell, and the Royal College of Art. During World War II, Gombrich worked as a translator for the BBC. In addition to being a member of a number of honorary and intellectual societies, Gombrich received numerous awards and honors both in the U.S. and Europe. He won accolades around the world for his thoroughly sound yet very accessible books on art and art history, including his celebrated THE STORY OF ART. His interest in artistic representation and art production expanded into psychology, history, and social thought, and his essays allow one "to feel in close touch with a rare and crucial thing, a large mind at full tilt, curious, ambitious and civilized." (Michael Kimmelman, New York Times, 11/24/1996). He died in London at the age of 92.
