The Warburg Institute is indebted to the enormous goodwill of its supporters at home and abroad

For more than a century, The Warburg Institute has transformed the study of art and history.

The Warburg was established in Hamburg as the privately funded library of Aby Warburg (1866 - 1929), the schorlarly scion of one of Central Europe's great banking families. The Institute's modes of classification and connection anticipated digital thinking, and it's methods of gathering and tracing cultural memory were 'interdisciplinary' before the word was invented.

It's survival is nothing short of a miracle. Thanks to the support of the Warburg family, Samuel Courtauld and others, the Institute was rescued from Nazi Germany in 1933 and became a permanent part of the University of London in 1944.
