Ernst H Gombrich Book and Novel

Ernst H Gombrich - Author

Sir Ernst Hans Josef Gombrich (30 March 1909 – 3 November 2001) CBE, was an art historian, who spent most of his working life in the United Kingdom.

He was born in Vienna, Austria-Hungary, into an assimilated bourgeois family of Jewish origin. He was educated at Theresianum secondary school in Vienna and at Vienna University before coming to Britain in 1936 where he took up a post as a research assistant at the Warburg Institute, University of London.

Gombrich's first book was Eine kurze Weltgeschichte für junge Leser (the only book he did not write in English), published in Germany in 1936. It was very popular and translated into several languages, but was not available in English until 2005 when a translation of a revised edition was published as A Little History of the World.
