Date de la manifestation : du 05 au 06 octobre  2016 .
Lieu : Londres, Wallace collection.

This two-day international conference will be the first dedicated to the Auricular style, centring on one of its most significant manifestations, the picture frame. The conference aims to stimulate awareness & study of this important but neglected style by bringing together research in fine & decorative art histories. It will consider the origins & development of the style in different materials, together with its dissemination between European centres. The conference will explore how other areas of the decorative & applied arts fed into the creation of picture frames, & were in their turn nourished through the influence of these sculptural objects.
