A key work in art history, at the root of some of the most important currents that have marked the development of the discipline in the last century, from Panofsky’s iconology to modern visual studies, is presented for the first time in Spanish. Mnemosyne is the great project to which Aby Warburg devoted the last years of his life, and which was intended to sum up and crown his entire oeuvre. To this end, he compiled some 2,000 illustrations, arranged in 60 tables, into a large atlas that remained unfinished at the time of his death. Despite the interest it aroused among his contemporaries and the efforts made by the staff of the Warburg Library after he moved to London, the material did not see the light of day until the Akademie Verlag edition by Martin Warnke, one of the most respected art historians of recent decades. This edition, which scrupulously respects the work as Warburg left it, is included in the book that the reader now holds in his hands. In addition, the Spanish version, edited by Fernando Checa Cremades, includes new texts written for the occasion by the aforementioned author and by Karin Hellwig, as well as several unpublished lectures by Warburg directly related to his posthumous work, which reveal the complexity and greatness of a thought that not only has not lost an iota of its interest, but is more relevant than ever.
