This work, published for the first time in English in 1972, was reissued more than a hundred times in different languages. Taking off from the theoretical statements that resort to large political or ideological structures to explain the synchronicity of art and the era that produced it, the author analyzes the tools and visual habits that make up a cognitive style used by artists and viewers to decode information and understand the meaning of the representations. In this illuminating analysis, Baxandall addresses the varied relationships that link images with the social life of a given culture and period.
