This is workshop II of the AHRC International Networking Grant: Collective Wisdom: Collecting in the Early Modern Academy. What was the relationship between archaeological fieldwork or antiquarianism and learned travel or the Grand Tour? What does collecting on tour say about the manner and scale of personal and institutional contacts between London and the scientific world of the Continent? What tools of natural philosophy were utilised to understand buildings and artefacts? What were the implications of the collecting of ethnographic objects for political dominance and Empire?

Ex libris of Z. C. von Uffenbach (Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum, RP-P-2015-26-1860).

Workshop | The Mind in the Matter

Posted in conferences (to attend) by Editor on March 22, 2019

From Eventbrite:

The Mind in the Matter: New Approaches to the Psychology of Collecting
Institute of Historical Research, London, 27 March 2019

Organised by the Society for the History of Collecting

Psychology informs us about what drives an individual to collect. In the Enlightenment, the human mind was often analysed and discussed by means of metaphors and analogies borrowed from the world of collecting. In the nineteenth-century, the stereotypes surrounding the monomaniac, eccentric or perverse collector was codified in the art press and through fiction. In the twentieth century, the topic was treated at length by scholars such as Werner Munsterberger, often working in an explicitly psychoanalytic framework. Whilst this Freudian approach has been subject to intense criticism in the past thirty years, many scholars continue to interpret collecting in terms of categories such as ‘lack’, ‘surrogacy’, ‘desire’ and ‘loss’.

Join us for a workshop that investigates the extent to which psychological models are still valid and necessary to understand collecting as a human activity. Is there a tension between the universalising psychological theories and the drive to study collecting historically? What sources are particularly useful or revealing for uncovering the collector’s motivations or relations to his objects? What can recent developments in psychology and neuroscience add to our understanding? How far can or should we enter the interior life of a collector, and what role does imagination play in communicating these insights to new audiences? And what are the meaningful alternatives, apart from opportunistic acquisitions; to a psychological approach of the study of collecting—can we ever escape from this way of thinking?

The workshop brings together six specialists working in different disciplines, who approach the ‘psychology of collecting’ from alternative perspectives, using historical case-studies and scientific models. Confirmed speakers include the pioneering historian of collecting Professor Susan Pearce; neuropsychologist Professor John Harrison; artist, collector and scholar Dr Jane Wildgoose; librarian and heritage expert Dr Tony Burrows; doctoral researcher into the collector Sir William Burrell, Isobel Macdonald; and contemporary art adviser Shaune Arp.

Conference | Rome and Lisbon in the 18th Century

Posted in conferences (to attend) by Editor on March 17, 2019

From the conference programme:

Rome and Lisbon in the 18th Century: Music, Visual Arts, and Cultural Transfers
Roma e Lisboa no século XVIII: música, artes visuais e transferências culturais
Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, Lisbon, 28–29 March 2019

Political, diplomatic, cultural, and artistic relations—including music and the visual arts—between Rome and Lisbon in the 18th century have, at different times, aroused the interest of several scholars. However, these research fields have often been approached in parallel paths within the traditions of each of the disciplines, without establishing in most cases a true dialogue between the different areas of knowledge and disregarding cross-cutting issues. On the other hand, the study of artistic relations and cultural transfers presupposes an in-depth and up-to-date view of the historical and social context of each city in their own peculiarities. This international conference intends to promote new approaches to the history of music and the arts through multidisciplinary dialogue that involves different points of view.

Art Institutions and Race in the Atlantic World, 1750–1850
The Centre for American Art at The Courtauld Institute of Art, London 24–25 May 2019

Organized by Nika Elder and Catherine Roach

The long eighteenth century gave rise to a host of art institutions throughout the Atlantic world, including the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the Academia de San Carlos in Mexico City, and the Academia Imperial de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro. Vibrant markets for paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and prints developed alongside and beyond these established institutions, creating networks of cross-cultural exchange that mirrored the economic ties among Great Britain, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas during this period. These cultural developments were inextricably linked with the profits and the cultural logics of colonialism and slavery. Building on important recent work on the visual culture of slavery and abolition, this conference examines the reciprocal relationship between the fine arts and racial ideologies during the apogee and decline of the transatlantic slave trade. The talks will consider sites of artistic production from throughout the Atlantic world, including Brazil, Britain, Jamaica, Massachusetts, and Mexico, and cover a wide variety of topics, including museum collections, artists’ models, the hierarchy of genres, print culture, and exhibitions of images and human beings. In sum, this two-day gathering examines how theories of race informed the production, circulation, collection, and display of art, and how those processes in turn solidified and promulgated understandings of race.

From the University of Pennsylvania:

Romantic Prints on the Move
University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1–2 February 2019

Organized by Cordula Grewe and Catriona MacLeod

Caspar David Friedrich, Woman Seated under a Spider’s Web (Melancholy), detail, ca. 1803, woodcut (Philadelphia Museum of Art 1993-128-1).

In partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts is pleased to introduce Romantic Prints on the Move. This symposium takes its lead from the 2013 PMA exhibition and corresponding collection catalogue, The Enchanted World of German Romantic Prints, 1770–1850 (Yale University Press, 2017).

In the second half of the nineteenth century John S. Phillips amassed a collection of roughly 8500 German works in all media and all genres, housed today at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Inspired by recent debates about the circulation and pricing of contemporary art, the conference bridges the nineteenth and the twenty-first century by shedding light on the economic, aesthetic, and geographical aspects of the production, dissemination, and collection of these prints in the era of their burgeoning new technologies, and by bringing together a unique mixture of academics and curators, dealers, and collectors.

For registration (free but kindly requested), announcements, and updates, please visit the conference web pages.

From St Mary’s University:

Text Artefact Identity: Horace Walpole and the Queer Eighteenth Century
Strawberry Hill, 15–16 February 2019

This conference will bring together scholars and curators from the disciplines of Literature, Cultural History, Art and Architectural History, and Heritage to investigate LGBTQ perspectives on the ‘long’ eighteenth century, and features keynotes from Walpole’s biographer, George Haggerty, and Matthew Reeve, who has written extensively on Gothic architecture, sexuality, and aesthetics.

Hosted in partnership with Horace Walpole’s Gothic villa at Strawberry Hill in west London, the conference will complement a major exhibition taking place October 2018–February 2019, The Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill, which brings together, for the first time since 1842, masterpieces from Walpole’s collection. There will be an opportunity to visit the exhibition during the conference.

Booking is now available online via Strawberry Hill House’s website, with generous reductions for unfunded students. One and two-day tickets are available, in addition to reduced prices for those not funded by their employer or external body. The conference is a partnership between the National Trust, Strawberry Hill, and St Mary’s University. More information is available here.
