Type : colloque.
Date du colloque : du 27 au 28 juin 2016.
Lieu : Madrid, museo del Prado.
This congress approaches collecting in the Spanish Habsburg court from perspectives that have barely been explored before: the material conditions in which artworks were exhibited (how high they were hung, on what surfaces, with what types of lighting, frames and possible accompanying inscriptions), their accessibility (what could be seen by whom, when and in what circumstances; the existence of more and less restricted settings and the norms governing visits, including the exchange of gifts and the acquisition of copies) and lastly, the criteria underlying the association and collecting of works, as well as the people charged with such activities.
Directed by : Miguel Falomir. Associate Director of Research and Conservation, Museo del Prado.
Organized by : Escuela del Prado.
