Abstract

The text is an authorized translation of Ernst Gombrich’s lecture first published in the Journal of Art Historiography (2022). The lecture explores the ways the history of art is and should be taught at art academies. It, too, reveals the prejudices towards history as a discipline and the shortcomings of traditional ways of teaching it. At the end, Gombrich summarises his own views on the subject and suggests possible options for teaching art history.
