Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz: Call for Papers

Sep 05, 2019 from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM

The Kunsthistorische Institut in Florenz is hosting a workshop on 12 and 13 December 2019 on the topic "Union from Division: (S)partimento and Renaissance Decoration". The call for papers ends on 5 September 2019.

From the call for papers: "This workshop would be an opportunity to observe how a recurrent notion of Renaissance art theory is reflected in the actual production, in the plurality of techniques and media, and, conversely, to examine the impact of the works themselves in the construction of a theoretical thought. It aims at contributing to understand the tensions between theory and practice in the organization of the space and meanings of the decorative ensembles. We invite art historians and researchers from other disciplines concerned with history of art to submit proposals on specific studies or more general considerations to stimulate the reflection on the emergence of a theory of decoration at the threshold of modernity.
