An interdisciplinary analysis of the representation of the invisible throughout art history
Alessandro Nova is co-director of the Frankfurt Kunsthistorische Institute in Florence, Italy.
"... whimsical, scholarly and original book ... In the modern world the winds remain a formidable power. They still destroy and create, bring drought and rain, life and death. Alessandro Nova, an Italian art historian, has set himself the intriguing project of writing a history of how these invisible forces have been represented in art... the pursuit of this art historical will-o'-the-wisp is enlightening, and accompanied by many beautiful illustrations." Martin Gayford, Spectator
