L: Raphael for Prince Eugene of Savoy (Vienna, 13 Dec,17)

Raphael for Prince Eugene of Savoy: The Oeuvre in the Albertina, Its Provenance and the Role of the Mariette
Lecture by Antoinette Friedenthal

 

13 December 2017, 6.15pm

Institut für Kunstgeschichte
Universitätscampus Hof 9
Seminarraum 1
Garnisongasse 13
1090 Vienna

The genesis of Prince Eugene of Savoy’s outstanding  collection of prints has hardly been researched so far. One of its most prized holdings, particularly coveted by the Prince, is an extensive Raphael oeuvre (today in the Albertina), consisting of seven large folio volumes that contain the prints after Raphael by contemporary and later engravers. Like the bulk of the collection, the Raphael oeuvre had been assembled and catalogued in 1717/18 by the Parisian bookseller, publisher and print dealer Jean Mariette in cooperation with his now more famous son Pierre-Jean Mariette. The lecture by Antoinette Friedenthal – who is currently preparing an annotated edition of the correspondence between Jean Mariette and Pierre-Jean Mariette, 1717-1719 – will explore this important chapter in the history of connoisseurship.

Der Workshop “Junges Forum für Sammlungs- und Objektforschung” fand als zweiter Teil einer Reihe von Workshops statt. Ausgerichtet von der Zentralen Kustodie der Uni Göttingen und gefördert durch die VW-Stiftung, beschäftigte sich der Workshop mit interdisziplinären Ansätzen in der Objekt- und Sammlungsforschung. Unter dem thematischen Schwerpunkt “Objekte der Sichtbarmachung” waren junge Nachwuchswissenschaftler/innen eingeladen, sich über die Vorträge hinaus auszutauschen und Einblicke in neue Forschungsfelder zu gewinnen. Ein weiteres Grundthema der Vorträge war die wechselseitige Beziehung zwischen den Objekten und die epistemischen, sozialen und kulturellen Kontexte, in denen sie sich befinden. Darauf aufbauend wurden verschiedene Möglichkeiten vorgestellt, wie diese Beziehung interpretiert und nachverfolgt werden kann beziehungsweise welche Probleme oder: Forschungsprobleme und -fragen sich durch diese Beziehung ergeben.

CONF: Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930 (Los Angeles, Jan 18-19, 2018)

The Getty Research Institute presents a symposium on the role of international art dealers in creating the collections, museums, and intellectual culture of the American art world in the late 19th and early 20th century. Bringing together rich archival resources from the Getty Research Institute and peer institutions, and capitalizing on new methodologies made possible by the extraordinary quantity of information contained in the documentary record, this symposium illuminates the ways in which art dealers contributed to making America a prominent arena in the international art market, and their role in creating the major private collections that became the foundation of great American museums.

Free tickets available beginning November 29, 2017 at www.getty.edu/visit/cal/talks.html
Separate reservation is required for each day of the symposium Continue reading “CONF: Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930 (Los Angeles, Jan 18-19, 2018)”

CONF: Heritage Protection after 1945 (Exeter, 21-22 Nov 17)

State Socialism, Heritage Experts and Internationalism in Heritage Protection after 1945
Reed Hall, University of Exeter, UK, November 21 – 22, 2017

CONFERENCE SYNOPSIS

Histories of heritage usually perceive their object of study as a product of western modernity, and exclude the socialist world. Yet, understood as a cultural practice and an instrument of cultural power, and as a “right and a resource”, heritage has played important roles in managing the past and present in many societies and systems. In the postwar period, preservation became a key element of culture in socialist and non-aligned states from China, the Soviet Union, and the Eastern Bloc to Asia, Latin America and Africa. Attention paid to the peoples’ traditions and heritage became a way to manifest the superiority and historical necessity of socialist development. However, the contribution of socialist states and experts to the development of the idea of heritage is still to be fully excavated.
