He has been Slade Professor of Fine Art at both Oxford and Cambridge, Visiting Professor at Harvard, Spencer Trask Lecturer at Princeton, and Walker Ames Professor at the University of Washington. His best-known book, The Story of Art (1950) has been translated into 29 languages.Review:
I have learned a great deal from this volume, but what I shall remember about it is the author's warmth and wit, the fabulous range of his references and the richness of personality that lies behind the whole performance. (The New York Times)
Gombrich himself is a remarkable intellect, graceful, subtle, profoundly logical and given to using logic to open questions rather than to close them. (The New Republic)
