Winckelmann and the Notion of Aesthetic Education

Jeffrey Morrison

Oxford University Press

Johann Jacob Volkmann's position in literary history is broadly similar to that of Johann Hermann von Riedesel. Volkmann's work, Historich-kritische Nachrichten von Italien, marks one of the many personal connections between Winckelmann and Goethe and paves the way for a limited degree of ideological continuity between the two men. This chapter addresses the question whether, and if so to what extent, Volkmann's Nachricten could have transmitted Winckelmann's thinking to another generation of readers and in particular, whether it reproduces anything more than his art history.

Keywords:   Johann Jacob Volkmann, Johann Hermann von Riedesel, Historich-kritische Nachrichten von Italien, Winckelmann, Goethe, Nachricten
