This volume reflects Professor Gombrich's lifelong interest in the social dynamics that help to determine the course art takes. It discusses the role of supply and demand, the 'ecology' of images, the idea of 'feedback' as developing skills in turn stimulate new demands, and the use (or misuse) of images as historical evidence.

Product Description:
Wide-ranging volume which focuses on the role of supply and demand in creation of images of all kinds. Gombrich develops many of the ideas and themes in the social history of art that have preoccupied him through a lifetime of research and reflection.
Review:

"It is, of course, wonderful."―Paris Free Voice

"He makes his lateral thinking and writing accessible to everyone, from politically-minded students to Sunday gallery visitors to the most rococo academics (the kind who never learn from his style)... The range of illustrations, though all black and white, is enormous; the range overall is that of a great teacher’s mind at work and at play."―RTE, Ireland

"Gombrich has a genius – for once that is the mot juste – for presenting complex and highly original arguments not just with exceptional lucidity, but also with wit. For any reader who has heard him lecture, the mesmerising charm of his inimitable if much imitated speaking voice leaps off the page..."―Apollo
