This book features the iconographic evolution of the witch over an extensive period of European culture - from the days of Classical Greece to the Romantic age. The study includes some of the most famous images in the history of European art, and focuses on the dual character of the witch in major literary works, as well as archetypal images in painting, sculpture, wood-carving and other artistic means. Lorenzo Lorenzi illustrates a fascinating theme, strictly tied to that of magic and mystery and explores the various cultural aspects which it involves.
