The tumult and transformations resulting from the Age of Revolutions (1770s–1840s) created a trans-Atlantic body of art and material culture that reflected and inspired new ideas and actions. Inspired by the American Philosophical Society’s 2017 exhibition on the legacy of the patriot portraitist Charles Willson Peale and his artistic family from the eighteenth century until the middle of the nineteenth, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA)’s forthcoming publication of The Art of the Peales: Adaptations and Innovations, along with a series of other Peale-centric events happening in Philadelphia, the APS and PMA will co-sponsor a scholarly conference, 19–21 October 2017, that explores the role of imagery in influencing and giving meaning to the political revolutions that defined the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The conference is especially interested in papers covering the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Circum-Caribbean Revolutions, and the Revolutions of 1848.

Potential topics include:
• the work of individual artists or artistic movements
• the role and influence of those who reproduced artwork for the public, such as printers or engravers
• the ways in which works were received by audiences
• the function of art in shaping public perceptions both at the time of revolutionary events and through historic memory Continuer la lecture
