The conference will cover the period running from the early 16th century to the introduction of the first lithographic press in the early 19th century. Geographically, the focus is on Europe. No restrictions are imposed concerning printing techniques — on the contrary, the characteristics of each technique as well as its ability and uses for reproducing original paintings constitute an important topic. We invite submissions of papers drawing from current research on specific prints or series of prints as well as on new theoretical approaches and methodologically promising developments in the study of interpretative prints, also exploring their potential as a source and as a subject matter of art history.
In particular we welcome submissions in but not limited to the following areas:. Yet again: The original and its graphic interpretation s : How are collaboration and competition amongst the printmakers themselves, and between the engravers and the painters represented in the prints? Did printmakers even perhaps hide critical or satirical messages in their interpretations? Questions of style: How is the painterly style of the original expressed in the graphic medium? Is there experimental ground for innovations in new printmaking techniques?
What role do special printmaking techniques - e. Reception: How were differences in style and in composition between the original and its reproduction perceived by the contemporary viewer? Is it possible to identify links between prints and theoretical writings on certain paintings or painting in general?
Which influence do captions have in the process of reception? Reproductive prints as a source for new approaches in scholarship: What potential do reproductive prints have as a source for the study of canon formation and for art historical network research? How can the pictorial and textual information contained in those prints be gathered, and how can this be made accessible for practical use? An important objective of the conference is to encourage networking between academic researchers and museum professionals.
Proposals by both doctoral candidates in art history and aesthetics as well as students aiming at a Ph. We also invite applications from curators and postgraduate researchers at museums and other research institutions and we are pleased to receive papers from colleagues working in media studies, philosophy and history. Please submit your proposal in the form of a word abstract and a short CV and send it in English or German as a PDF file to: beyond-reproduction gmx.
Please indicate in your proposal those prints that you wish to discuss in the original. We will be happy to check if they are available in the Kupferstich-Kabinett. Das Die geplante Tagung will die protestantischen Bilderwelten vom Jahrhundert bis heute in den Blick nehmen. Der Fokus liegt auf Graphiken und Objekten aus Papier.

Faith and self-image in printed works of art. Veste Coburg, where Luther spent half a year during the Diet of Augsburg in , will also be the site of a major exhibition by the Haus der Bayerischen Geschichte Centre of Bavarian history.
It takes place on the occasion of the Reformation jubilee and during the exhibition period. The Reformation period is intrinsically linked with the printed portraits of its protagonists. It was the Cranach workshop, first of all, which created works of iconic quality. They defined the public image of Luther and his fellow campaigners.
Furthermore, the Reformation period saw the production of an overwhelming amount of polemic and propagandistic illustrated broadsheets. Thus, the Reformation was the first historic turnover which was accompanied and advanced by printed images. In the following centuries the Protestant self-image was likewise expressed in prints, e. Furthermore, bible illustrations and other biblical images were of great importance. The conference will take a close look at Protestant images from the 16th century to today.
The focus is on prints and other works on paper. We welcome papers 20 minutes on religious and ideological aspects as well as papers focusing on the function and use of such objects. Book illustrations, broadsheets, commemorative sheets and decorative prints are of particular interest here. Subject to successful financing of the conference, we will reimburse invited speakers for their travel and accommodation expenses. Call for Participants, Philadelphia, PA, Oktober The long eighteenth century was a period of major breakthroughs in the domain of color printing in several parts of the world.
In Asia and Europe, various relief and intaglio techniques were adapted to full color printing and achieved widespread uses in the visual arts. Jacob Christoph Le Blon and his successors experimented with multiple-plate intaglio printing, and produced color prints in collaboration with leading artists.
Although scholars have increasingly studied eighteenth-century knowledge of the properties, meanings, and uses of colors, the materials and practices involved in the production and reception of color-printed images have received comparatively less attention. This project will bring together scholars from a range of disciplines and fields printing history, book history, critical bibliography, history of art, history of technology, etc. How do we understand the emergence of widespread color-printing practices across the globe approximately at the same time?
What were the economic, social, or political factors that facilitated color printing as a major medium for visual creation? What were the taxonomic, semantic, and aesthetic consequences of printing in color as opposed to hand painting in color? We encourage submissions that engage with the specific material practices of color-printed images that emerged in Europe and Asia between the second half of the seventeenth century up to the early nineteenth century, while reflecting on the broader questions they raise with regards to our knowledge of the period and the validity of current approaches.
Possible topics might include but are not limited to: the production and consumption of color-printed images; color printing as a mode of cultural exchange; the materiality of color printmaking and the production of knowledge including, but not limited to, spheres of natural history, the fine arts, mapmaking, color theory, and connoisseurship etc.
Participants should be able to commit to attending all sessions of the working group:. Thursday, 12 October , pm, pm Friday, 13 October , ampm Saturday, 14 October , am. Participants should further be able to commit to meeting again one year after the conference to work toward a publication of the results of the working group.

Mellon Foundation, and organized by the Andrew W. Februar Eingabeschuss: This panel explores how drawing and related graphic media were used to gain insight into nature during the early modern period. Naturalists and artists faced a natural world in expansion, which they sought to describe in detail as new realms of natural history emerged, facilitated by a conjunction of events ranging from geographic explorations to the invention of the microscope. As rich scholarship in the history of science and of art has shown, images could function as powerful instruments of knowledge and as repositories of newly gained information about plants, animals, and minerals.
Addressing the epistemological encounter between artists, scientists, and the natural world, this panel zooms in on how this moment of intersection called for innovative strategies of visualization and shaped new graphic conventions in the production of images. It interrogates how techniques of up-close observation, connected to technological progress, informed innovative modes of depiction and vice-versa, as exemplified by figures as diverse as Robert Hooke, Claude Aubriet, and Maria Sybilla Merian.
When exposed to lush tropical botany or seemingly hybrid organisms such as polyps and corals , how did naturalists and artists use drawing to stabilize nature? What were the operations that transformed observation into a graphic act? How did experienced observers respond to this abundance of information and translate into lines the sensorial overload triggered by unfamiliar morphologies? Papers using interdisciplinary approaches and with a focus on France and Northern Europe in a global context are particularly welcome.
Paper abstracts words max. Chairs will reply to all applicants by September 15, Make sure your paper title, abstract, and name appear exactly as you would like them published in the conference program. No changes will be accepted from you or your session chairs after September 15, Please note that all conference participants must be current members of the CAA through February 18, Experimental prints made in America during the s and s do not fit neatly into studies of postwar art or the history twentieth-century printmaking. Despite midcentury prints becoming peripheral to the mainstream history of postwar modernism, artists explored printmaking with zeal and enthusiasm.
Their prints traversed the United States and the globe in the postwar decades, evangelizing unfettered modernist expression and American democracy. The government recognized this diplomatic potential, and the United States Information Agency founded amassed a collection of more than one thousand six hundred prints to hang in American embassies around the world.
This session welcomes a broad range of papers that will open scholarly inquiry into this understudied period of printmaking in America. Case studies could focus on artists both Americans and international artists working in America , known and under-known communal or academic printmaking workshops, the midcentury print market and collecting activities of curators and individuals, and exhibitions of prints in the United States or abroad.
April Eingabeschluss: 7. Book illustrations, especially from the hand-press period , are an essential but traditionally overlooked source of art historical information. Although the hierarchies of fine art over popular art are dissolving and modern disciplinary distinctions between text and image or art and book are giving way to cross-disciplinary and holistic approaches to printed material, printed images that happen to be inside books often fall outside the remits of art historical, literary, bibliographical and material research.
One reason is that practical and academic barriers impede access to the art historical information that book illustrations can provide. Due to incompatible cataloguing standards dopted by libraries and art museums, researchers can struggle to identify book illustrations across collections.
Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt
As the global digitised corpus expands, will book illustrations be more represented in print scholarship or will they continue to fall into the gap between art and book? As material objects and visual resources, should they be considered bibliographical, art historical or iconographical material? And how do such classifications influence their interpretation? This interdisciplinary, all-day session seeks to establish a platform for discussion about the position of printed book illustrations in graphic art scholarship.
Theoretical and object-based papers related to any aspect of collecting, cataloguing and interpreting printed book illustrations, broadly defined, are welcome, as are papers that explore the materiality, iconography, historiography or art history of pictures printed inside books. Please email word paper proposals, including your name, affiliation and email, to the convenor by 7 Nov November Gernsheim-Studientage Eingabeschluss: Ihre Technik und Entwicklung, Wien , S.
Dahinter stehen oft komplexe Sachverhalte, die, destilliert auf das Wesentliche, als kurze Formel Gestalt gewinnen. Tatjana Bartsch bartsch biblhertz. Ihre Technik und Entwicklung, Vienna , p. Artists often use graphic marks and ciphers as substitutes or normative shortcuts codified as references, deliberate exclusions, or omissions. Lying behind them are often complex issues, which once distilled to an essence take on the form of short formulas. This practice may, for instance, be conditioned by local traditions and can happen for reasons of spatial and temporal economy, or to lend greater trenchancy to the drawing.
The expressive contents of the abbreviations, being particularly explicit in the graphic media, are potentially as varied as their exterior form is economical. In the framework of the conference, the concept of abbreviation must be broadly understood, in consideration of factors such as motivation and intention, iconographic subject, context of use, transmission, and possible forms of coding and deciphering.
This may be done through the examination of a single object, but also by focusing attention on selected phenomena within more extensive spatial and temporal frameworks. Potential aspects for consideration include:.

With the invention and development of new printing technologies in the nineteenth century—lithography, wood engraving and photography—prints became cheaper and widely diffused, appealing to a wider audience and serving a broad variety of functions. Collections of landscape imagery were published throughout Europe, and focused as well on Asia, the Americas, North Africa. They invented new imagery, but also perpetuated landscape tropes that had been familiar for centuries, regularly exchanged between paintings and the printed page. Drawing manuals published models for landscape depictions— plants and trees, geologic formations, typical inhabitants; these were often borrowed from paintings but were then recycled into new paintings, drawings, photographs, prints.
Possible topics for presentation could include: printed landscape imagery in colonialism, nationalism, global consciousness; images in guidebooks and drawing manuals; the role of new print technologies in the circulation of landscape imagery; landscape reproductions in the periodical press, their derivation, purpose, and context; the mutual interdependence and exchanges of printed landscape imagery with other forms of visual art; the proliferation, derivation, and function of publications combining text and landscape imagery. For Italy, the 'long seventeenth century' was a period of considerable financial challenges.
This was especially evident on the book market. Nevertheless, thanks to new techniques and formats which mutually related text and images within the same publication, innovative genres were born that were marketed towards both ends of the audience spectrum, from the learned to the illiterate. The products emerging in the wake of these processes reached consumers throughout distant countries, between Italy and the rest of Europe.
Moreover, various professionals and skilled workers earned their living thanks to the print market, from the production to the distribution of printed items. The new commercial items also contributed to the spread of cultural phenomena, such as the Grand Tour through its souvenir prints that were sometimes incorporated in atlases. This one-day interdisciplinary conference seeks to examine these matters by focusing on the products, audiences and professionals involved.
The conference promotes a multidisciplinary perspective, bridging the gaps between art history, history of the book and other disciplines such as intellectual history and communication studies. By doing so, it sets out to lay the foundations for a shared history of printed products and markets in the early modern period by focusing on the influence of Italy from a pointedly European perspective. We invite papers addressing, although by no means limited to, questions such as:. Can specific socio-geographical patterns be discerned through either individual case studies or larger scale data analysis?
And what was the relevance of supplementary trades, such as paper production? Can cheap print in its various shapes, such as news printing, be considered as reaching a shared audience between different social classes? We invite papers from both established and emerging scholars in universities, museums, galleries, and other related institutions. Accepted speakers will be expected to pay the conference fee and fund their own travel; bursaries for postgraduate students might be offered to help with travel expenses, however this is not guaranteed.
All accepted speakers are encouraged to apply to their institutions for subsidies to attend the conference. Abstracts for minute papers, not exceeding words, accompanied by a brief academic cv words , should be sent by 31 August to: meetsthepage gmail. Centre for the Study of the Renaissance, University of Warwick. Eight years later, its portal is where Martin Luther is said to have nailed his 95 Theses against Catholic excesses such as the sale of indulgences, liturgical sartorial opulence, and the hoarding of the very relics the church contained.
The 95 Theses soon circulated as a printed document, becoming one of the most influential letterpress broadsides ever issued, ushering in the Protestant Reformation. In honor of this momentous th anniversary, we propose a Renaissance Society of America session on the ways Luther's declaration and the mode of its distribution affected artists and artisans in all media around , especially those with connections to the Saxon court. Papers on printmakers and publishers are particularly welcome, as well as others comparing the paper record with extant examples of the lavish church clothing and ritual decorative arts that Luther rebelled against.
A copy of Cranach's Wittenberger Heiligthumsbuch will be on display at the Art Institute of Chicago during the conference. Please submit an abstract of no more than words and a short one-page c. April Eingabeschluss: 1. This panel seeks to consider paper across the early modern world and how artists utilized paper not only as a support for drawing and printmaking but also as a material that already had embedded meaning in its production. Paper defined early-modern mobility from the innovations in papermaking in the Arabic World to the import of paper in the New World for the first printing presses; from the Japanese paper used by the VOC to wrap goods to its mobilization in artistic production by artists such as Rembrandt.
Frequently paper carried in it the traces of the season in which it was made, minute hairs from felt fibers, and the waste running through the watermill used to process the paper. With the invention of watermarks, paper began to carry the impression of local places and customs. In turn, this brown or blue paper was then utilized for the packaging and shipment of goods. This panel suggests that artists were well aware of the multiple qualities of paper and sought to examine and exploit these particularities of paper in the workshop.
Topics of particular interest are transregional studies of paper; theoretical studies of watermarks; paper as a device for wrapping; paper as a substance created through local environmental waste and reused by artists.

Added words, associated with figures or set apart by a frame, words that one notices, that one watches, that one sometimes discovers within an image… What if prints were also a question of words, of written composition, of comparative reading within the written and figurative space of an image?
Before the relationship between artistic creation and writing was completely rethought by the avant-gardists, prints were long the only visual art in which words could be freely associated with figures and in which the parts of the text, inserted in the composition, could form a visual, logical and semantic whole with the drawing. This capacity of prints to accommodate within a single graphical composition a great variety of signs, forms and written material is primarily due to the conception of printing plates and to the technical properties of engraving.
At a time when a mimetic conception of representation which led more often than not to the exclusion of text from the figurative field of the image was becoming widespread in Europe - painted, inscribed or drawn text often relegated to the margins, hidden in a detail or set apart by a frame - prints continued to accommodate words, to draw texts to figures, to include inscriptions in the very composition of engraved plates.
During the Renaissance, professionals of the genre showed remarkable wit and inventiveness in the artistic conception of writing, the articulation of graphic registers and the complementarity of written and figurative languages which generally make up the printed image. From this point of view, prints occupy a very specific place in artistic production, visual culture and practices of writing in modern Western society.
We may even see in them the possibility of bringing together in a single medium different forms of expression and dialogue which were always deeply connected in the Middle Ages, which is one of the reasons behind the economic success of prints and their rapid assimilation by European society. For all those who needed both written resources and images, prints offered a new medium, itself a subtle intermediary between printed text and drawing. The 16th century in Europe was not only the golden age of the printed book: it also marked the application of engraving techniques to all sorts of iconographies, the introduction of printed images in numerous spheres of activity, as well as the birth, derivative of prints, of a new social practice of images.
The goal of the conference is to study the place of writing, its forms and functions in 16th-century prints, from the production of images to their use in extremely varied socio-cultural contexts. The propositions of presenters, whether dedicated to specific corpuses or treating the question in a more cross-sectional manner, should be founded on consultation of engraved or etched inscriptions which constitute the "lettering" of prints; on technical, linguistic and iconographic analysis of these inscriptions in relationship to the images they accompany; on historical interpretation of the objects, processes and artistic and cultural phenomena thus brought to light.
We invite specialists in prints to widen their scope by taking into consideration objects and inquiries from other disciplines: literary history, history of the book, history of science from medicine to cartography via antiquarian studies , religious history or political history may all contribute to collective thinking on the place of writing in the conception and use of printed images in the 16th century.
The conception of the title, its function and uses in prints. The conception of frontispieces, commentaries and legends.

Early modern prints were a widespread and artistically diverse medium and the creative process of a print did not stop after printing. Researching the creative afterlife of prints is therefore an essential development in the study of early modern visual culture. Zum Gebrauch von Druckgraphik im In order to stimulate this promising evolution, the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is organising an international conference on early modern prints, ranging from precious artistic prints that were carefully collected to cheap printed images that were used and discarded.
The aim of this symposium is to further develop this new approach in order to achieve new insights on target audiences, the application and usage of prints, and special collection practices. The organisers particularly welcome object-based proposals regarding printed pictorial material or written primary sources. The organisation will consider proposals for minute papers, presenting the findings of new or ongoing research.
The application, consisting of a proposal abstract maximum words and an image and a concise curriculum vitae, should be sent to mailto: j. The final program of the conference will be announced later that month. For more information, please visit the conference website: www. September - 2. In the past decade there has been an explosion of comics production in German-speaking Europe. The impressive artistic quality and thematic breadth of comics coming out of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland today has attracted public and critical attention, both domestically and internationally.
From historical comics that open new perspectives on the GDR and reunification to comics journalism on right-wing extremism; from biographies of Martin Luther, Fidel Castro, and Johnny Cash to adaptations of Goethe, Kafka, Schnitzler, Thomas Bernhard and beyond; from Berliner vampires to time traveling Junge Pioniere, the landscape of German comics is vibrant, diverse, and challenging. As comics are increasingly incorporated into university curricula, as well as into the fields of inquiry of Literary and Media Studies, German Studies is also beginning to recognize comics as a legitimate object of scholarly analysis.
For the third consecutive year, we invite papers on German-language comics old and new, organized around three thematic constellations: Gender and Sexuality — Age — Nation and Identity. We include individual calls for papers for each panel, and submissions of approximately words—as well as a short bio—should be directed to the appropriate organizer by February 5, Even though issues of gender and sexuality as well as comic studies have gained traction in German studies, the intersection of these two fields is still in its infancy.
This panel invites scholars to present analyses of one or several comics or graphic novels from the German-speaking world that tackle themes of gender and sexuality. Possible lines of inquiry include, but are not limited to the following questions:. This is especially true in German-speaking Europe, where numerous artists have interpreted their own stories through comics ex.
Each of these comics, as the story of a lived life, is inherently concerned with the passage of time, of aging. This panel invites papers on the theme of age in German comics, topics for which could include, but are not limited to:. With its close relationship to caricature, the comics medium has been linked to concepts of nation and national identity since its inception. In the German-speaking context, national history has become particularly significant in negotiating national identity in contemporary comics. More recently, graphic novels have also begun to offer a space for the representation of marginalized members of the German public, and the fringes of German national identity are finding their voice within panels.
Moreover, the German government has turned to comics to educate the population. The Interior Ministry of Nordrhein-Westfalen, on the other hand, has published three issues of their comics series Andi instructing on Islamicism and right-wing and left-wing extremism. This panel invites scholars to consider the role of nation and national identity in German comics today. Topics include but are not limited to the following:.

Knowledge of printmaking techniques is integral to a scholarly understanding the field.
Despite this inherent focus on process, many scholars have never had the opportunity to make a print themselves due to issues of time, funding, or resources. The Association of Print Scholars APS is pleased to announce a two-day intensive workshop that will provide early-career scholars with a brief introduction to printmaking techniques.
The workshop will begin with a kickoff reception on Thursday evening at Cade Tompkins Projects, a gallery that represents contemporary printmakers including Daniel Heyman, Allison Bianco, and Nancy Friese. The second day will focus on lithography. The number of participants will be limited to ensure a hands-on experience with each demonstration and access to individualized attention. Who: Graduate students currently enrolled in art history, visual culture, or material culture doctoral programs in the United States or early-career professionals who graduated within the last ten years.
Applicants must be members of APS. Fees: Participants will be responsible for travel expenses to Providence and lodging. Stipends will be offered, by application, to offset these costs for those without institutional support. Application: To apply, please submit the following documents: - a brief statement words or less describing your research and how it would be enriched by this workshop - a current CV - one letter of reference sent directly to info printscholars.
Please send your application as a single PDF attachment to info printscholars. Applicants will be notified by February 15, Rom, Istituto Centrale per la Grafica, Curating graphic arts! We want to reflect on the various challenges in the field of cataloguing, curating and exhibiting graphic heritage. Which are the current and specific issues of works of art on paper? We welcome proposals from all areas of relevance to this topic, including but not limited to: - Studying works on paper past and present : tendencies, methods and instruments - Curating, cataloguing and exhibiting drawings, prints and plates - Graphic arts in conservation - Professional prospects in the field of graphic arts: reflections and experiences.

The Courtauld Insitute of Art, Traditionally, the history of printmaking has fallen in the space between art history and the history of the book. The inherent complexities in the manufacture and sale of print, often involving multi-faceted networks of specialist craftsmen, artists, publishers and sellers, has also led to much confusion.
Not knowing how prints are made has affected our ability to understand the medium and its aesthetic qualities. However, recent scholarship has opened up new avenues for placing prints in Renaissance and Early Modern Europe. From the techniques applied in the making of prints to the individuals involved in their production, distribution and use, current research is continuing to shape our understanding of this complex field.
This conference aims to showcase new developments in the study of prints, challenging and developing traditional approaches. We are looking for papers that address a wide variety of issues and plan, over the course of the two-day conference, to have a series of panels devoted to different themes. Some issues to consider include, but are not limited to, the following:. This will provide the opportunity to engage directly with objects related to the themes discussed.
