Gombrich's The Story of Art

There was a publication referring to the Gombrich's The Story of the Art in the British Journal of Aesthetics, Vol. 36, No. 3, July 1996.
Woodlield, R. (1996), argued that according to Gombrich the entire history of art may be matched against an illusionist ideal. At this point the term of the word "relative" was used as the aversion to the doctrine of the absolute relativism. The answer is given to the first sentence in the introduction of the book "There really in no such a things as Art. There are only Artists" (Gombrich, 1995, p. i). At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York he said that aeverything implies to the theoretical position of art. He also proposed to back to the early usage of the word "Art" that signified any skill or mastery. (September 1995, Phadon Press).
