Journée d’études : « Artistic Trade between Spain and its Viceroyalties from 1500 to 1800 ».

Juan Patricio Morlete Ruiz, Cristo consolado por los ángeles, XVIIIe siècle, huile sur cuivre, 64 x 84 cm, Mexico, Museo Nacional de Arte.

Type : journée d’études.
Date et horaire : 22 juin 2018 .
Lieu : Keynes Hall, King’s College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge.

This is the first conference in the United Kingdom devoted to artistic trade between Spain and its viceroyalties. Referring to Cambridge’s Spanish and colonial art collections and with the indispensable support of the King’s College Nigel Glendinning studentship, this conference brings together scholars specialized in the art from the Spanish Viceroyalties. The speakers will trace the artworks from their production, their movement with the help of agents and their collection and display at their destination. Such approach avoids setting an epicentre and periphery but establishes an equalitarian platform on the movement of art within the Spanish Empire.
