Dictionary of Subjects and Symbols in Art
Publisher:John Murray General Publishing Division
This dictionary relates in a succinct, readable way the themes, sacred and secular, on which the repertoire of European art is based. Cross-references enable the reader to identify the subject of a picture simply from some characteristic object or figure in it. Here in a single volume are combined religious and historical themes. The “Dictionary” also explores the “lost language” of symbol and attribute, thus opening up the whole field of allegory.
