Event description
Talk by Lynn Catterson from Columbia university

About this Event

Using as a case study the famous Madonna relief, attributed to Donatello, and now in the Bode Museum in Berlin, this talk examines technique for provenance manufacturing, as well as the wheeling and dealing, and double-dealing, which took place during the transaction of the relief from Bardini to Wilhelm von Bode, the museum’s agent.

Lynn Catterson (Columbia Univ., Ph.D., 2002) began with an interest in Italian Renaissance sculpture with a focus on the marketplace and how 15C sculptors satisfied consumer demand for antiquities. Lately, she is working on the art market in 19C Florence from the point of view of production and social network via its preeminent dealer, Stefano Bardini, drawing upon material in the state archive of the Bardini family and business. The main goal of the Bardini project is to create a digital research platform to unite the material in Florence with corresponding archival material from individuals and institutions with whom Bardini transacted art.
