[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay on Carl Friedrich von Rumohr appears in the first French dictionary dedicated to German art historians. Starting with Winckelmann and ending with the first half of the 20th century, figures such as Jacob Burckhardt, Carl Einstein, Worringer, Schlegel, Warburg are found. A discipline that, in German-speaking countries, has never been confined to the strict domain of artistic scholarship; instead it has often been a place of cultural affirmation, in the same way, for example, of classical philology or philosophy; a source of ideas and innovative problems. At the confluence of aesthetics, history and anthropology, the history of German art has irrigated all human sciences. The contribution dedicated to Rumohr presents him as a scholar of medieval and renaissance art, a history of engraving, a creator of museums and a promoter of the protection of artistic heritage, a theorist and a collector.
