In The Sacred Image in the Age of Art, Marcia Hall has solidified one of the most important paradigms for interpreting art after Trent, while adding to her growing list of seminal contributions to Renaissance studies. Her new book's publication not only offers colleagues and students an opportunity to consider its arguments and impact, it occasions thought on the whole of her scholarly production, from Renovation and Counter-Reformation to Color and Meaning and After Raphael. This call invites papers addressing the myriad topics central to Marcia's oeuvre, including, but not limited to: art and icon, Trent, the Maniera and/or relieflike style, Raphael and his impact, color modes, the contribution of conservation science to art historical interpretation, and artists' use of their materials for expression. Papers that deal directly with the ways in which her ideas intersect with contemporary scholarly debates are especially of interest.
Dr. Hall herself will perform as a respondent.
