Ein privilegiertes Medium und die Bildkulturen Europas: Deutsche, französische und niederländische Kupferstecher und Graphikverleger in Rom von 1590 bis 1630

A privileged medium and the visual cultures of Europe: German, French and Netherlandish engravers and print publishers in Rome from 1590 to 1630 Symposium: 10 November - 11 November 2008

Program and organization

Eckhard Leuschner

Focusing on the fascinating plurality of artistic and/or visual production in Rome between 1590 and 1630, the conference will study the exact nature of relations between the astonishing number of Northern artists and art dealers active “in urbe” and their local colleagues. Presenting new research on the business of printmaking and publishing in Rome during the period in question, the conference will discuss and identify the foreign contributions to the development of the city into the most important laboratory of the transition between Renaissance and Baroque art. Why did so many Northern “incisori ed editori” come to Rome? How did they adapt their art to local standards? How did they cooperate with local painters and architects? What influence did private and institutional patrons have on their works? How did they deal with issues of censorship and market regulations? The conference is intended to combine different strings of research, i.e. questions of style, social and political history and artistic theory.
