Revisiting the Monument: Panofsky’s Tomb Sculpture Fifty Years On arises out of a conference held at The Courtauld Institute of Art on 21 June 2014 to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Erwin Panofsky’s Tomb Sculpture: Four Lectures on its Changing Aspects from Ancient Egypt to Bernini. Panofsky’s approach was innovative, considering funerary monuments as artistic objects, charting developments in their iconography, style, form and function within the broader chronology of art history. Panofsky’s work serves as a starting point for the contributors’ exciting new work on funerary monuments, which demonstrate the insights to be gained through innovative research techniques and approaches. The chapter order will progress from tombs addressed by Panofsky, but now reassessed, through new perspectives and under-explored areas, finishing with technical investigations that were simply not available fifty years ago. The fourteen contributors are mainly early career researchers, with an introduction assessing Panofsky’s legacy by Professor Susie Nash, and a conclusion, looking forward to future research avenues, by Professor Phillip Lindley
