Abstract

The essay represents the second revised and enlarged edition of the first part of the author's appendix to the 1997 reprint of Erwin Panofsky's famous book on "Hercules at the Crossroads." Wuttke applies Panofsky's method as it is explained in the fundamental essay "Zum Problem der Beschreibung und Deutung von Werken der bildenden Kunst" (1932) to the book itself. He introduces the reader to Panofsky's concept of 'method in application' and gives a dense description of the contents of the book. He then shows the relevance the book has with respect to the development of the history of art history: He demonstrates how deeply the "Hercules at the Crossroads" is rooted in the Warburg tradition. In order to ascertain his arguments Wuttke collects and interprets the testimonies of the reception of the book.
