From the organization

Researches into Baroque art on the Slovenian territory have been thriving again during the last few years. One of the themes about which numerous texts, some of them also debatable, have been recently published is certainly the painting of the second half of the 17th century in former Carniola, i.e. the central part of present-day Slovenia. Since this topic seems to attract a lot of interest among scholars, a decision has been made that a scientific symposium, Flemish and Dutch painters in Central Europe and northern Italy in the late 17th century, will be held in the autumn of 2005, coorganized by the Department of the History of Art at the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, the France Stele Institute of Art History at the Scientific Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and the National Gallery, Ljubljana.

Theme

The principal thematic groups of the symposium will be: Almanach and other Flemish and Dutch masters active in the later half of the 17th century in Carniola (for example: Harman Verelst, Justus van der Nypoort, Ludvik de Clerick, Sebastian Verporto, Pieter Averex); issues related to the Carniolan noblemen as patrons and art-collectors; and wall- and oil paintings and various artistic furnishings in palaces and other kinds of aristocratic homes in Carniola. It is also our wish that the symposium covered the question of Flemish and Dutch masters active in (northern) Italy and the Habsburg lands, as well as the theme of European illusionistic and genre painting of the second half of the 17th century.

The event will also be accompanied by an exhibition. Most of the paintings that will be shown in the exhibition and are expected to be discussed by some participants have already been published by Federico Zeri and Ksenija Rozman in the catalogues of the National Gallery (Slovene-Italian bilingual exhibition catalogues of 1983, 1989 and 1993, and the English catalogue of 2000, European Paintings. Catalogue of the Collection), which are available in major art-history institutions.
