Conference on “Artists' Materials. The Study of the Painter’s Atelier in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century”

Friday 03 April 2015 (Categories: Non ICOM/ICOM-CC)



A one-day conference will examine the subject of painters’ materials and ateliers from a multidisciplinary perspective: papers will include contributions from art historians, conservators, restorers, physicists and chemists. Papers are in English and in Italian.

The main themes are: the reconstruction of relationships between artists and companies producing fine arts materials, their marketing, supply and communications which targeted artists, the coeval image and today’s reconstruction and musealization of the painter’s studio materials. Besides presenting single case-studies, the conference aims to propose a methodological discussion on the study of the painter’s studio materials as a means of examining the painter’s technique and practice in the Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries.

The conference will take place at: Scuola Normale Superiore Piazza dei Cavalieri, 7 Pisa, Italy.
