' [...] the studies presented here offer in many aspects a new and deepened view of the Italian Renaissance. They combine a stylistic and iconographic analytical procedure with numerous facts or relevant connotations taken from the realm of cultural history and the history of ideas. In London, the art historians at the Courtauld Institute were traditionally characterized – though of course in a cum grano salis manner – as the “eye people”, those at the Warburg as the “mind people”. Grabski obviously belongs to both groups'.
