2014 ¹1

Theme of the Issue:
The first issue of 2014, whose theme is “Worldview of the Epoch and Plastic Art Images”, is devoted to the basics of every art history study – drawing from the historical, social and worldview context. Special attention is focused on the formation and evolution of the artistic language; this is reflected in the sections “Theory of Art. Artistic Language” and “Books: Text and Illustration as Metaphors of Time” (the issue includes a continuation of the study of a Renaissance romance by Francesco Colonna “Hypnerotomachia Poliphili” and a translation of some of its chapters begun in the previous issue).
