0256 Moderner Inhalt in manieristischer Form. Max Dvořák unter dem Einfluss Georg Simmels
The article deals with the influence of Berlin philosopher Georg Simmel on Viennese art historian Max Dvořák. Dvořák as a successor of Alois Riegl and Franz Wickhoff at the art history department of the University of Vienna is considered the promoter of the scholarly method of the so-called Vienna School of Art History. In the historiography of art history, the opinion has become established that Dvořák modified this method, mainly after 1918, as "Kunstgeschichte als Geistesgeschichte". However, Dvořák’s work could also point to influences other than those of his teachers at Vienna University, namely the work of Simmel, to which Dvořák referred in 1920. Simmel’s influence might even be evident in Dvořák’s thinking as early as around 1911, and as such it is interpreted as an essential part of his pre-war art history as well as his post-war formulation of Mannerism.
