For the first time, a key work in artistic historiography is presented in Spanish, which is at the root of some of the main trends that have marked the development of the discipline in the last century, from Panofsky’s iconology to modern Studies Visuals. Mnemosyne is the great project to which Aby Warburg dedicated the last years of his life and that he should summarize and crown all his work. To do this, he collected some 2,000 images articulated in 60 tables in a great atlas that remained unfinished at his death. Despite the interest he had aroused among his contemporaries and the attempts made by the Warburg Library collaborators after his transfer to London, the material did not see the light until the edition of the Akademie Verlag carried out by Martin Warnke , one of the most prestigious art historians of recent decades. This edition, which scrupulously respects the work as Warburg left it, is the one that is included in the book that the reader now has in his hands. In addition, the Spanish version, under the supervision of Fernando Checa Cremades, collects, together with new texts written for the occasion by the aforementioned author and Karin Hellwig, several unpublished Warburg conferences directly related to his posthumous work, which highlight the complexity and greatness of a thought that not only has not lost an iota of interest, but is more current than ever.
