Proceedings from the international conference Technology and Practice: Studying the European Visual Arts 1800-1850. Paintings, Scupture and Art on Paper, held by CATS at the National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen 15-16 June 2016

Edited by Joyce H. Townsend and Abbie Vandivere, 2016

 

 

 

This conference focused on artists’ techniques and materials, written sources, conservation science, the history of science and technology, history of trade, and innovation of artists’ materials during the first half of the 19th century. In the preceding several decades a succession of art academies emerged throughout Europe, and another focal point of the conference was the impact of these institutions on a new generation of artists, examining how this manifested itself in their Paintings, Sculpture, Interiors and Art on Paper.

Organised by: CATS in collaboration with Metropolia University of Applied Science (Helsinki), Nationalmuseum (Stockholm) and the University of Oslo.

Conservation in the Nineteenth century

Preprints from the international conference CiNC – Conservation in the 19th Century held at the National Museum May 13-14th 2013.

Edited by Isabel Brajer, 2013

 

 

 

 

The papers in this volume, presented at the conference Conservation in the Nineteenth Century, suggest that we should not think of the nineteenth century as a time solely marked by conservation activities that should be criticised, but as an interesting confluence of various attitudes out of which modern conservation trends emerged.

The conference was organised by: CATS and The National Museum of Denmark.

The conference Copying, Replicating & Emulating Paintings in the 15th-18th Century explored how art historical and technical examination of paintings in tandem can address key subjects as meaning, materials and manufacturing techniques, as well as be a catalyst for fresh perspectives on prevailing European workshop practices when copying, replicating and emulating paintings in the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries.
