Aby Warburg : an intellectual biography
Hamburg[ edit ] The institute was formed in Hamburg , Germany, from the library of Aby Warburg — , a student of Renaissance art and culture, and a scion of the wealthy Jewish Warburg family. As an art historian , Warburg had become dissatisfied with an aestheticising approach to art history and was interested in a more philosophical and interdisciplinary approach. While studying the culture of Renaissance Florence , he grew interested in the influence of antiquity on modern culture , and the study of this second life of the Classical World became his life work. After Warburg returned to Hamburg in , he and Saxl initiated the process of conversion, and the Warburg-Bibliothek officially opened its doors as a research institute in Warburg "famously forfeited his right to a share of his fortune on condition that his younger brother Max would buy him any books he required". The institute moved to the Imperial Institute Buildings in In it became associated with the University of London.
