The book’s argument is extended in this chapter by investigating Didi-Huberman’s concern with matter and materiality by way of three themes that distinguished his writing through the 1900s: the pan, dissemblance and presencing. Didi-Huberman’s interest in the image’s materiality comes to the fore with the case study Fra Angelico’s marmi finti, or the fictive marble panels in the corridor of the San Marco convent. Chapter 2 asks the question: What role does early Christian theology play in Didi-Huberman’s work? This facilitates a rethinking of the entire philosophical and historical tradition in which the history of art has been understood, with its dependency on Platonism and Renaissance humanism.
