Ernst Hans Gombrich: His art history concepts, methodological positions and his contribution to an interpretation of modern art
The paper is the contribution approach to interpretations of Ernst Gombrich’s contribution to the understanding of modern fine art. The basis of the paper stems out from knowledge of domestic and foreign interpretations of Gombrich’s art history concept (Bakoš, Mikš, Kesner, Hříbek, Elkins etc.). The main hypothesis of the paper is idea that Gombrich’s posthumously published work The Preference for the Primitive (2002) is, in spite of legitimate critiques on the part of contemporary art historians, not solely contribution to the primitivism phenomenon, but also to the understanding of modern art by its own historical perspective.
