E. H. GOMBRICH'S ADOPTION OF THE FORMULA FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION: A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY?
Languages of publication
This article is a longer note on what is a minor problem in the oeuvre of a great art historian. Its theme is E. H. Gombrich's use of the formula form follows function as the summary of his commonsense approach to the problem of style change. Although the author is not sure how interesting this inquiry is in an art historical context, from the perspective of his own field of design history and of modernist design theory, Gombrich's adoption of the formula constitutes an intriguing problem.
