10.00 – 17.30 Saturday 14 January 2012 (with registration from 9.30)
Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 0RN
The study of Spanish drawings is a rapidly advancing area of research. Exhibitions devoted to early modern Spanish drawings are increasing in number, unknown works are being brought to light and new questions are being raised. What were the shifting attitudes towards drawing in Spain from the time of Juan de Juanes to the era of Picasso? To what extent do issues of style, subject matter and technique problematise the categorisation of drawings as ‘Spanish’? How does the study of drawings enhance our understanding of Spain’s artistic, social and cultural world? This conference is timed to celebrate the publication of the complete catalogue of Spanish drawings in The Courtauld Gallery collection by Zahira Véliz, and to coincide with The Courtauld’s associated exhibition, ‘The Spanish Line: Drawings from Ribera to Picasso’ (13 October 2011 – 15 January 2012). The conference aims to showcase new research on various aspects of Spanish drawings from the sixteenth through the twentieth century.
Organised by Zahira Véliz and Edward Payne (The Courtauld Institute of Art)
