RENAISSANCE SECTION RESEARCH SEMINAR

Speaker: James Fenton
Ticket/Entry Details: All welcome
Organised by: Dr Georgia Clarke - Courtauld Institute of Art
Further information: The Renaissance Section research seminars for 2004-5, In the Name of the Artist: History, Biography, Monographs, will consider monographs and biographies. The Raphael exhibition at the National Gallery makes this an apt moment to address this topic - one that was introduced in last year's 'Naming Names' seminar. It is proposed that speakers will explore issues such as the Burckhardtian concern with the cult of the individual; the notion of a monograph - whether in the format of an exhibition or book; the effect on an artist's or architect's work when it is considered within a catalogue raisonné or in the context of a biography; the problem of 'anonymous masters' and how the attribution of art works or buildings may be driven or constrained by the art historical definition of authorship.
