The late Frederick Antal was one of the most influential art historians of our day.

He is known especially for the wider significance and deeper meaning he gave to art history by placing art in the general history of ideas and relating it to its economic, social and political environment - an undertaking calling for encyclopedic knowledge, meticulous documentation, and historical insight.

Antal's reputation rested largely on the now classic Florentine Painting and Its Social Background and on a number of highly original, authoritative and stimulating articles that had appeared over the years in various specialized periodicals. Making available the more important and characteristic of these essays, the publication of this volume represents an important new contribution to art history. Not only does it amplify the principles underlying Professor Antal's art-historical method, but also makes available in one place many of his pioneering studies on the origin and evolution of mannerism and the interaction of romanticism and classicism, especially from the time of the French Revolution to the death of Gericault.

- The Author - Hungarian by birth, the late Frederick Antal was a man of the widest culture. He studied art history at the universities of Budapest, Berlin, Paris and Vienna and thereafter traveled extensively in Italy, where he devoted himself to pioneering research in the history of mannerist painting. -book jacket

About Author

Frederick Antal was a Hungarian art historian, particularly known for his contributions to the social history of art. "The son of a wealthy Jewish family, Antal completed a law degree then studied art history in Budapest, Freiburg and Paris. In Berlin he was a student of Heinrich Wölfflin and in Vienna under Max Dvorák.

He received his doctorate in art history in 1914 under Dvořák and began his car Frederick Antal was a Hungarian art historian, particularly known for his contributions to the social history of art. "The son of a wealthy Jewish family, Antal completed a law degree then studied art history in Budapest, Freiburg and Paris. In Berlin he was a student of Heinrich Wölfflin and in Vienna under Max Dvorák.

He received his doctorate in art history in 1914 under Dvořák and began his career as a volunteer at the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest (1914/1915). In 1916 Antal joined the illustrious discussion group the Sonntagskreis, whose members included intellectuals such as the philosopher Georg Lukács (1885-1971), the sociologist Karl Mannheim (1893-1947) and art historians Arnold Hauser (q.v.) and Johannes Wilde. Soon after the creation of the Hungarian Soviet Republic (March 21, 1919), Antal became Vorsitzender des Direktoriums (Chairman of the Board) at the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, where he had assisted in socializing the museum's private collection and organized a successful exhibit with the help of Otto Benesch.

As Vorsitzender of the museum, Antal headed efforts to promote artists and protect national monuments. His tenure ended abruptly after the Counterrevolution of Summer 1919, after which he fled to Vienna. Partially funded by the University of Berlin, Antal traveled extensively in Italy from 1919 to1923, spending most of his time in Florence.

From 1923-33 Antal was a resident of Berlin, where he collaborated with Bruno Fürst (1891-1965) as editor (1926-34) of the periodical Kritische Berichte zur kunstgeschichtlichen Literatur, a publication primarily concerned with methodology. In 1932 Antal toured Soviet museums, about which he later lectured (published 1976). He fled the Nazi regime in 1933 and settled in England, where he befriended the art historian Anthony Blunt, wrote his book Florentine Painting and lectured at the Courtauld Institute.

Thereafter, Antal's interests shifted from classical and romantic French painting and its relation to revolution and restoration to the 18th Century artists Hogarth and Füssli. His book manuscripts on these artists were published posthumously. Antal's Marxist beliefs and reputation as a Communist effectively excluded from the Western academic world as of 1948.

At his best, Antal can be seen as blending Aby Warburg's (q.v.) methodology with a more traditional Marxist view of art. As he continued to write, he increasingly applied the concept of Marxist dialectical materialism to art history. He suggested that artistic style is primarily an expression of ideology, political beliefs and social class.

This methodology has been criticized as assuming too strong a determination of artistic style by social constructs. Furthermore, Antal was criticized for defining an artist's identity too narrowly by his patron or benefactor's social class and thereby neglecting the artist's subjectivity. The review of Florentine Painting by Millard Meiss in the Art Bulletin (1949) is most illuminating, both of Antal's methodology and of the art establishment's reaction.

The critic and art historian John Berger cited Antal as a major influence on Berger's work". -
