The Warburg Institute

The Warburg Institute is the premier institute in the world for the study of cultural history and the role of images in culture. Initially concerned with the survival of classical antiquity in Renaissance art, its range swiftly expanded. It is dedicated to the history of ideas, the dissemination and transformation of images in society, and the relationship between images, art, and their texts and subtexts, of all epochs and across the globe. As its motto – Mnemosyne – and its Library make clear, it was the forerunner of current concerns with both memory and material culture.
