Journée d’étude à Londres : « New Research on Spanish Drawings »

Drawn to Spain: Showcasing New Research on Spanish Drawings

10.00 – 17.30 (with registration from 9.30) Kenneth Clark Lecture
Theatre, The Courtauld Institute of Art

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.
