Description

***Please note, one ticket is valid for both days***

Join us for two days of stimulating talks on the topic of national revivals in European art c.1900. Speakers will examine issues around authenticity, ‘rewriting’, reinterpretation and the assimilation of national styles, symbols and cultural narratives in late nineteenth-century European art and literature. Papers will encompass a wide geographical range: from Finland, Norway, Estonia and Germany to Poland, France, Spain, Ireland and Scotland, and focus on such artists as El Greco, John Duncan, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Sir Frederic Leighton, René Ménard and Lucas Cranach. Themes include the revival of classicism in English and French art, the Celtic Revival in Scotland, Ireland and Brittany, as well as spiritualism and theosophy.

The conference includes a visit to the astonishing Phoebe Traquair murals at Mansfield Traquair Centre, led by Dr Elizabeth Cumming and a drinks reception with a story telling by Linda Perttula.
