Öffentliche Ringvorlesung
WS 2018/19, jeweils Do., 18:15–20 Uhr,

Ringvorlesung der Fächer Geschichte, Kunstgeschichte und Museologie der Universität Würzburg in Kooperation mit dem Museum für Franken und dem Museum am Dom.

Organisation: Dr. habil. Susanne Müller-Bechtel mit Prof. Dr. Eckhard Leuschner, Prof. Dr. Guido Fackler und Prof. Dr. Anuschka Tischer.

Seit dem Wintersemester 2016/17 wird an der Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg der interdisziplinäre Masterstudiengang „Sammlungen – Provenienz – Kulturelles Erbe“ (SPKE) als erster seiner Art hierzulande angeboten. Er reagiert auf die zunehmenden kulturpolitischen Herausforderungen der Provenienzforschung und die gesteigerten Anforderungen an das Sammeln, Bewahren und Erforschen von Kunst- und Kulturgütern (Cultural Heritage). Dabei bietet die Zusammenarbeit der Fächer Kunstgeschichte, Museologie/Museumswissenschaft und Geschichte breite theoretische Grundlagen, aber auch individuelle Möglichkeiten fachlicher Vertiefung.

In der nunmehr dritten Ausgabe der SPKE-Ringvorlesung diskutieren namhafte Referentinnen und Referenten prinzipielle Fragen der Provenienzforschung und des Kulturgutschutzes, stellen damit befasste Einrichtungen vor, decken Verstrickungen von Politik, Kunstmarkt und Kunsthandel auf oder untersuchen exemplarisch unterschiedliche Sammlungsprofile und Sammlerpersönlichkeiten. Mit dem Galeristen, Mäzen und Verleger Egidio Marzona spricht einer der wichtigsten Sammler der Avantgarden des 20. Jahrhunderts über seine Leidenschaft.

CONF: Sir Richard Wallace and His Age (London, Nov 15-16, 2018)

Sir Richard Wallace and His Age: Connoisseurs, Collectors and Philanthropists

https://www.wallacecollection.org/whats-on/sir-richard-wallace-and-his-age-connoisseurs-collectors-and-philantropists/

A two-day international conference exploring Sir Richard Wallace and his collection.

This year the Wallace Collection is celebrating the two-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Sir Richard Wallace. Taking Sir Richard Wallace and his collection as its starting point, the conference will look at aspects of collecting and collections in London and Paris in the wake of the upheavals of the Franco-Prussian War and the Commune in 1870-71, considering essentially the period between 1870 and 1900.

The first day of the conference will consider the impact on the Anglo-French art market of the political and social upheavals in France in 1870-71, including the dispersal of collections and the movement of collectors, as well as the curatorship of private art collections. The second day will focus on two themes: the subject of the morning session will be loans to exhibitions from distinguished collections and the motivations that drove them; the afternoon will showcase works of art in the Wallace Collection acquired by Sir Richard Wallace.

Thursday speakers include:

  • Olivier Hurstel (‎Curatorial Fellow, European Decorative Arts and Sculpture – Philadelphia Museum of Art)
  • Professor Robert Tombs (Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge),
  • Dr Thomas Stammers (Assistant Professor, Department of History, University of Durham)
  • Professor Anthony Geraghty (Department of History of Art, University of York)
  • Dr Mathieu Deldicque (Conservateur du Patrimoine, Musée Condé, Chantilly)
  • Joseph Friedman (Honorary Visiting Fellow of the Department of History of Art, University of York, and Senior Research Fellow in the History of Art and Architecture, University of Buckingham)
  • Dr Silvia Davoli (Research Curator Strawberry Hill, The Horace Walpole Collection)
  • Suzanne Higgott (Curator, The Wallace Collection)
  • Helen Jones (Research Librarian, Wallace Collection Library)
  • Natalie Zimmer (Curatorial Assistant, The Wallace Collection)

Friday speakers include:

  • Lindsay Macnaughton (PhD researcher, Durham University/The Bowes Museum)
  • Kathryn Jones (Senior Curator of Decorative Arts, Royal Collection Trust)
  • Eloise Donelly (AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Candidate, University of Cambridge and the British Museum)
  • Stephen Duffy (formerly Senior Curator, The Wallace Collection)
  • Dr Jeremy Warren (Honorary Curator of Sculpture, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and Sculpture Research Curator, The National Trust)
  • From the Wallace Collection’s Curatorial department, Dr Tobias Capwell, Suzanne Higgott, Dr Helen Jacobsen, Dr Yuriko Jackall, and Ada de Wit.

The conference will be followed directly by a round table chaired by the Wallace Collection’s Director, Dr Xavier Bray, in conversation with special guest speakers Olivier Gabet (Director, Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris), Dr Emilie E.S. Gordenker (Director, Mauritshuis, The Hague), Christian Levett (Private Collector), Jacob van der Beugel (Artist in Residence, The Wallace Collection), Ian Wardropper (Director, The Frick Collection, New York) to explore what the future holds for institutions founded by bequests similar to that of the Wallace Collection and how they are adapting to changes that could not have been foreseen by the original donors.

The ticket price includes coffee and tea breaks and a drinks reception on Friday 16 November from 18:30 to 19:45.

From mid-19th century, a new kind of art history narrative about private collectors appeared in Europe and the US, e.g., Anna Jameson’s Companion to the Most Celebrated Private Galleries…,1844, Gustav Waagen’s Treasures of Art in Great Britain, 1854-57; Dumesnil’s multi-volume Histoire des plus célèbres amateurs…, 1853-1860; the Gazette de Beaux-Arts‘s series on “amateurs,” 1850s; F. G. Stephens’s 90 Athenaeum articles on British collectors, 1873-84; Edward Strahan’s (pseud. Earl Shinn) The Art Treasures of America (1879-1882); Continue reading “CFP: The Collector and Cultural Narratives, SECAC (Birmingham, AL, 17-20 Oct, 2018)”

The art world and the market have traditionally been the domain of the elites and have thrived on exclusivity. However, the art world has arguably become much more democratic in recent years thanks to the digital revolution, the inclusion of emerging economies in the world art market system, and the vastly improved access to art and information. The price histories of works of art can nowadays easily be reconstructed using online databases; the threshold for art buying is significantly lowered by online sales platforms; and new buyers in emerging economies are making the art market much less Western-oriented. Moreover, an ever broader range of artworks in different price categories has put (fine) art within reach of the middle classes across the globe. At the same time, art institutions such as museums are under tremendous pressure to be less exclusive. Some of these democratizing tendencies are of course not new. For instance, publishing houses in Europe started disseminating prints on a massive scale already in the sixteenth century, thereby enabling larger segments of the population to acquire images.

CONF: Il mercato dell’arte in Italia intorno al 1900 (Florence/Bologna, 14-15 Nov 17)

IL MERCATO DELL’ARTE IN ITALIA INTORNO AL 1900.
PROTAGONISTI, ARCHIVI, FOTOGRAFIE

Florence, Bologna, November 14 – 15, 2017

Study days promoted by Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut and Federico Zeri Foundation.

The two study days, which will take place in Florence and Bologna respectively, aim to analyze the dynamics of the art market in Italy at the beginning of the twentieth century, intersecting the methods of the history of art, economic history and sociology.

In this fruitful research context, two particular aspects will be studied: the relationship between photographic practices and antique practices, the subject of the first day hosted by the Fototeca del Kunsthistorisches Institut, and the antiquarian world in the Savoy Rome, which will be studied on the second day at the Federico Zeri Foundation.
