Appel à communication : « Trading Paintings and Painters’ Materials 1550-1800 », Copenhagen, janvier 2018

On 21 and 22 June 2018, a two-day Technical Art History conference will be held by CATS, titled Trading Paintings and Painters’ Materials 1550-1800.
The focus of the conference will be on the emerging international markets and their implications for the artistic production in Early Modern Europe (1550-1800), in particular in relation to the trade in paintings and artists’ materials. We welcome contributions from a diverse range of fields, including technical art history, art history, conservation and science.

Themes for presentations may address:

  • Preferences for painters’ materials and paintings in/from specific geographical areas (quality differences, availability, economic considerations, demand from patrons and traditions)
  • Impacts of imported paintings and painting materials on local producers, artists, connoisseurs and art theorists (competition, usage and reception)
  • Conditions in which these products (materials and paintings) were produced and traded (workshop practice, trade routes and dealer networks)

Please submit a preliminary title, short abstract (max 500 words) and a short biography (max 100 words) for oral and/or poster presentations.
