Carl Justi

Carl Justi (1832-1912) was an art history and philosophy professor at the University of Marburg. Specialist in Portuguese and Renaissance art, he published scores of books on influential personalities such as Winckelmann and Michelangelo. His biographical approach to art history was original and particularly innovative, as he preferred the use of psychology rather than art-historical movements to analyse the artists' aims.
