Abstract:   (28986 Views)
Iconography and iconology are among the approaches for studying image. Though dated back to renaissance era, this approach as a compiled and systematic way for examining image begins in the dawn of twentieth century and in Warburg School. Erwin Panofsky is the well-known figure of Warburg School and his methodical study is intertwined with titles of iconology and iconography. In this article, the history of icon and iconographical studies are examined and then the difference between iconology and iconography is discussed. Then, Panofsky’s opinions about reading image and the three phases of this sort of reading are discussed in accordance to his views. Panofsky calls these three phases as “pre-iconographical description”, “iconographical analysis”, and “iconological interpretation”. These three levels are explained separately and the article concludes with some criticisms to Panofsky’s opinions.
Keywords: icon, iconography, iconology, Erwin Panofsky, image
