The Architecture of Commercial Networks 1500–1900

Improvements in communications and transport technology during the early modern period enabled new forms of global connectedness. Exploiting these technologies, European kingdoms were able to extend their reach and influence throughout the world, establishing lucrative markets for exotic goods. Embedded within the processes of imperial expansion and international commercial competition were sophisticated networks of trade relations, embracing metropolitan financial centers and local markets. Characteristic of this chain of transaction were the buildings that gave it physical form—a facilities infrastructure that enabled the processing, storage, and shipment of goods.

This session invites proposals that engage directly with the history of trade and infrastructural architectures in the context of commercial networks. It asks participants to consider ideas of spatial integration and common enterprise that such networks relied upon and engendered.
Questions include: in what ways were buildings concerned with trade shaped by their location within wider networks of related structures? What role did standardization and seriality play in the erections of such buildings? How did corporate identity affect type, style, and ornamentation? And, what relationships existed between spatial organization and technical specification in the ordering, processing, and conservation/preservation of goods?

The session especially welcomes proposals that engage wider historiographic frames of reference, such as regional, oceanic, and World/Global historiographies, methods of cultural and historical geography, the history of ‘things,’ as well as economic and business history, to provide further insight into the extended and systematized nature of networked space. This may include consideration of the colossal joint-stock corporations of the early modern period, such as the Asian and African trading companies of Britain, Holland, and France; smaller national and international mercantile syndicates of early modern Europe; or, later in the nineteenth century, large-scale agricultural, transportation, and mining corporations operating in Africa, the Americas, and Australasia.

Session Chairs: G. A. Bremner, University of Edinburgh, and Katie Jakobiec, University of Oxford

Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Erforschung des 18. Jahrhunderts Annual Conference Moral Cultures (Paderborn, September 19-22, 2018)

Hardly any term is as ubiquitous during the 18th century as the term ‘morale’. For Niklas Luhmann the ‘universalization of moral demands’ is a pivotal trigger in the ongoing transformation of society from stratified to functional differentiation:  It forces back religion’s dominance, gives way to those new pedagogical (e. g. Pestalozzi, Weiße), psychological (Erfahrungseelenkunde) and political or juridical concepts (democracy, theories of penalty) that modern societies are based on. Furthermore, the omnipresence of morale is intertwined with the way an aspiring bourgeoisie defines itself and its educational values in opposition to nobility (see Carl Friedrich Bahrdts Handbuch der Moral für den Bürgerstand, 1790).

Northerners in Italy: Negotiating Style, Art Markets, and Comunità Historians of Netherlandish Art (HNA) Sponsored Session

The lure of Italy enticed hundreds of northern European artists to cross the Alps during the early modern period in search of artistic inspiration and fame in centers such as Venice, Rome, and Florence. How these artists negotiated their new surroundings, however, depended upon economic and social factors specific to each particular center. Recent studies focused upon artistic migration, emerging art academies, and expanding art markets in Italy have highlighted how complex and mercurial this process could be. However, a broader study that identifies consistent patterns concerning artistic mobility is still needed. This session seeks to address this lacuna, probing further the process of acclimation for northern European artists in Italy and the effect of travel on artistic practice and theory.

[1] New Directions in Representation of the Italian Landscape [2] Bloodlines: Re-Framing Artists’ Families in the Early Modern Period 

[1] New Directions in Representation of the Italian Landscape

From: Melissa Yuen <melissa.yuen@stanford.edu>

Session Sponsored by the Italian Art Society

Images of the Italian landscape, both real and imagined, have been the subject of many fruitful investigations, from research on broad trends and refined definitions to focused monographs on individual artists. Recent studies have shed new light on the display of landscape paintings in palaces and villas, artistic practice, professional networks, and the intersections between antiquity and natural history. In particular, research into the growing interest in empirical study and the interpretation of nature in early modern Italy has led to a greater understanding of representations of the natural world. This panel seeks papers that build on these themes and present new ways to reconsider the portrayal of the landscape and landscape artists working in Italy. Continuer la lecture

Lieu : Minnesota, Saint Paul, University of St. Thomas

The University of St. Thomas Department of Art History will host its eighth annual Graduate Student Research Symposium, Exhibiting Power, on September 30, 2017 Keynote Speaker: Robert Rydell, Professor of History & Director, Humanities Institute, Montana State University Power hungry. Power grab. Power in numbers. Soft power. Displays of power. The start of 2017 has brought the issue of “power” to the forefront of political, cultural, economic, entertainment, and social debates. Yet, the issue of “power” in art history and museum studies has long been a topic of scholarly research and discussion. Art History has asked how images and objects can visually explain power through signs and symbols, as well as through association with artistic movements and artist groups. Museums, likewise, have questioned their own role in exhibiting power through the examination of display practices, educational models, community-based partnerships, and innovative use of space. In a rapidly changing world, how do art history and museum studies rely on the past for lessons in exhibiting power, while also representing power in new ways? Continuer la lecture

Polychromy in the Early Modern World: 1200-1700 Session at the New College Conference of Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Sarasota FL

This session focuses on the techniques and materials of polychromy used in Europe from 1200 to 1700. Our goal is to take a trans-cultural approach of the medium. Of interest is the production of polychrome sculptures, panels, and architectural assemblages in marble, wood, wax, terracotta, ceramics, and limestone. We welcome the study of treatises and contracts that reveal specific use of pigments, distribution of workshops, collaborations between specialized artists, and artistic programs centered on the use of color as an agent. Scientific analysis of pigments are also of interest as are discussions of the place of polychromy in the art historical canon and the paragone.

Bilder exotischer Tiere zwischen wissenschaftlicher Erfassung und gesellschaftlicher Normierung. 1500-1800.

Die Darstellung exotischer Tiere zählte zu den besonderen Herausforderungen an Künstler der Frühen Neuzeit. Ihr Innovationsbedarf war zweifach, da neben der textlichen Überlieferung der antiken Naturgeschichte die im Zuge der überseeischen Expansion rapide zunehmenden Kenntnisse außereuropäischer Fauna einer visuellen Fixierung bedurften: Im methodischen Spannungsfeld von humanistischer Textrevision und sammelnd-empirischer Erfassung avancierte das Bild zu einem primären Erkenntnisträger der vormodernen Zoologie. Epochale Forscher wie Ulisse Aldrovandi engagierten etwa Künstler, um ihr Wissen anhand der Visualisierung sowohl externer Bildvorlagen als auch lebender und präparierter Tiere aus den eigenen Sammlungen zu schärfen.

Appel à communication : Session at SAH 2018 : Causes for Admiration: Objective Beauty in Architecture

Claude Perrault

Causes for Admiration: Objective Beauty in Architecture

In the Preface to the “Ordonnance for the Five Kinds of Columns after the Method of the Ancients,” Claude Perrault famously distinguished objective from arbitrary causes of architectural beauty. The scholarly discussion of the Preface has focused on Perrault’s view of proportion as an arbitrary cause, and his emphasis on taste and authority as principles guiding aesthetic judgment. Less attention has been given to how the Preface defines and affirms the beauty of architecture rooted in objective causes, “bound to please everyone.” Amongst these causes Perrault classes rich material, size and magnificence, clean execution of the work, and symmetry.

Appel à communication : New Horizons in French Porcelain

Terrine, 1754 – 1770, porcelaine de Niderviller, Birmingham Museum of Art.

Type : Appel à communication

Date limite de l’appel à communication : 15 juin 2017

Date de l’événement : 20 – 21 octobre 2017

Lieu : Londres, The Wallace Collection

The French Porcelain Society is pleased to announce this year’s two-day symposium, entitled : ‘Saint-Cloud to Bernardaud: New Horizons in French Porcelain, 1690–2000’.

It will be chaired by Dr Aileen Dawson, former Curator, The British Museum, London, and will take place on 20–21 October 2017 at The Wallace Collection, London.

The symposium will present new research on French porcelain factories outside royal or state control. At times unjustly neglected in favour of the royal manufactory at Sèvres, these earliest factories operated from the late seventeenth century; many continue in production today. They include, but are not limited, to Saint–Cloud, Villeroy, Mennecy, Niderviller, the Paris factories, such as Dihl, Schoelcher and Dagoty, and Limoges factories operating during the 19th century and up to the present day. Subjects for consideration include: locations, size, capitalisation, techniques of manufacture, employment of artists and designers, marketing, and clientele, each deserving of greater scholarly attention.
