Abstract

This paper analyses the relationship between Edgar Wind and Gertrud Bing through a reading of their correspondence, in order to shed light on a crucial chapter in the history of studies on Warburg’s legacy. The rift between Edgar Wind and those representatives of the Warburg Institute who transferred to London marks a wound in European cultural history that has yet to heal. Philological research is still needed to reconstruct this history, which is presently characterised by confusion and gaps. This article should be seen as a first step towards a comprehensive survey of the Wind–Bing correspondence preserved and filed at the Bodleian Archive in Oxford and the Warburg Archive in London.
