Pevsner’s Blind Spots. Organization and Representation of Art Academies in the Northern and Southern Netherlands

Organizers: Nils Büttner, Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart, ; Birgit Ulrike Münch, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn,

Nicolaus Pevsner’s Academies of Art. Past and Present was first published in 1940. Without a doubt, his Academies is still a standard reference work. Nevertheless, it consolidated the alleged incompatibility of the Netherlandish and the French / Italian art system and hereby created a gap and hierarchy between the different art academies still recognizable in recent research. Pevsner’s largely idealized description of the French Academy was already in contrast to the situation in Antwerp. But above all, the Northern Netherlands appear to be diametrically opposed to this ideal. Pevsner exemplified his concept based on the artists Rembrandt and Charles LeBrun and regarded the Dutch group of buyers as characterized by a less developed tradition in matters of art collecting as well as a less trained ability to judge art and as having a much simpler taste. This, according to Pevsner, had damaging consequences: To satisfy the taste of these amateurs on a shapeless anonymous art market the Netherlandish artists were often forced to produce a huge amount of paintings of low quality.
