CONF: Impressionism Around the World (Philadelphia, 12-14 Apr 19)

Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, April 12 – 14, 2019

“IMPRESSIONISM AROUND THE WORLD”
10TH ANNUAL ANNE d’HARNONCOURT SYMPOSIUM 2019

Philadelphia Museum of Art, Perelman Auditorium

organized by André Dombrowski (University of Pennsylvania), Kathleen Foster and Jennifer Thompson (Philadelphia Museum of Art)

How did a quintessentially French art movement like Impressionism become an international phenomenon and global success around the year 1900? Why were its attempts to condense representation so completely into the here and now, into an experiential moment, a flicker of light, and the material conditions of painting such a favorite with audiences of highly disparate nationalities, traditions, religions, political regimes, and imperial ambitions? Leading scholars explore Impressionism’s global reach at the turn of the twentieth century, focusing on the style’s infatuation with speed and commodity culture, mass travel, the telegraph, the moving image, and thus the complete re-organization of modern global time and space these innovations set in motion.

PUB: ‘Art Crossing Borders – The Internationalisation of the Art Market in the Age of Nation States, 1750-1914’ ed. Jan Dirk Baetens and Dries Lyna

Art Crossing Borders offers a thought-provoking analysis of the internationalisation of the art market during the long nineteenth century. Twelve experts, dealing with a wide variety of geographical, temporal, and commercial contexts, explore how the gradual integration of art markets structurally depended on the simultaneous rise of nationalist modes of thinking, in unexpected and ambiguous ways. By presenting a radically international research perspective Art Crossing Borders offers a crucial contribution to the field of art market studies.

This publication is open access and can be freely downloaded directly from the Brill website here.

PUB: Caterina Caputo, Collezionismo e mercato. La London Gallery e la diffusione dell’arte surrealista, Florence: Pontecorboli, 2018.

Research on the art market related to the avant-garde remains still largely unexplored today. The author of the present book aims to contribute to this field through a study of collecting, art market strategies, and networks that fostered and sustained Surrealism in the interwar and post-war periods in Britain. The volume focuses on the London Gallery, the only Surrealist gallery to be active in England since the end of the 1930s. It was managed by two Surrealist artists who were also collectors: the Belgian E.L.T. Mesens and the British Roland Penrose. The London Gallery opened in 1938, two years after the significant International Surrealist Exhibition held at the New Burlington Galleries in London, an exhibition followed by the foundation of the Surrealist British group.
