The Psalter-Book of Hours of Alfonso V the Magnanimous is one of the most important illuminated books commissioned by this Valencian monarch. This king used the book as an instrument of propaganda concerning his royal authority and piety, making this manuscript one of the most important records of the social history of medieval Valencia. A presentation of the miniatures will be accompanied by a brief introduction to Valencian manuscripts of the period, essential to understanding the specific characteristics of the complex manuscript studied here. The production process of the manuscript will also be analysed, and an attempt will be made to establish connections between this and other codices made in Valencia at the same date, trying to generate possible inflection points between these pieces and to define the artistic personalities who participated in this book of hours.

Dr. Nuria Ramón-Marqués is a lecturer in Art History at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. Her research focuses on the study of painting and illuminated manuscripts from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries in the Crown of Aragon. Her doctoral thesis on the study of the Valencian medieval miniature, entitled The illumination of manuscripts in Valencia Gothic. From the beginning until the death of Alfonso V the Magnanimous (1290–1458) (2 vol. Universitat de València, 2005), made possible the reconstruction of the artistic personality of the Valencian miniaturist Domingo Crespí. Nuria is the author of several articles and books including The illumination of manuscripts in Gothic Valencia (1290–1458) (Valencia, 2007) that continues to have a significant scientific impact since it constitutes the most complete corpus of these works and a reference in the area of medieval painting and miniature.

CALL FOR PAPERS

FLANDES BY SUBSTITUTION: COPIES OF FLEMISH MASTERS IN THE HISPANIC WORLD (1500-1700)

Art History Seminar 18 of the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) Brussels, 9-10 February 2017

On 9 and 10 February 2017 an international conference will be held on the copies of paintings of Flemish masters during the sixteenth and the seventeenth centuries related to the Hispanic world. The event will take place at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) in Brussels and is organized in collaboration with the Spanish National Research Project COPIMONARCH: La copia pictórica en la Monarquía Hispánica, siglos XVI-XVIII (I+D HAR2014-52061-P) from the Universidad de Granada.

The artistic heritage of the regions that once formed part of the former Spanish Empire includes a large number of painted copies after Flemish masters made during the sixteenth and the seventeenth centuries. Most of these works have received little attention even though they constitute a valuable source for understanding the artistic influence of the Southern Netherlands on Spanish and Latin American art and society in this period. Indeed, the study of copies of Flemish masters sheds light on a number of art historical issues, including the means of diffusion of artistic models, stylistic trends and the dynamics of the art market and the world of collecting. These copies are a valuable testimony to the political, commercial and cultural ties that existed between the Hispanic territories and the Southern Netherlands.

The conference will focus on the phenomenon of the copy from a large variety of approaches, ranging from workshop practices to collecting, trade and patronage. Papers about studies on particular copies are welcomed, but special attention will be paid to the driving forces behind the export-driven market of copies, such as artists, patrons, collectors and merchants. By taking into account cultural, religious, political and socio-economic dynamics, this conference aims to shed new light on the multifaceted artistic impact of the Southern Netherlands on the Hispanic world during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

We welcome 20 minutes papers that offer new contributions in which recent methodologies and theoretical frameworks are applied to copies after Flemish masters from this period. Proposals can focus both on copies made in the Southern Netherlands to be sent to the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America, and on copies made in these regions.

Candidates are invited to submit their proposals to Eduardo Lamas-Delgado (eduardo.lamas@kikirpa.be) and to the project COPIMONARCH (copimonarch@gmail.com) before 15 September 2016. This should include an abstract (up to 300 words) and a brief CV (max. 1 page).

Further information on the conference will be available from 30 October 2016 on www.kikirpa.be and http://wdb.ugr.es/~copimonarch/eventos/

The conference organisers are unable to cover travel and accommodation costs for speakers. Interested parties should apply for support from their respective institutions.

SEMINAR with Brad Epps – Nouvelle Vague Tango: Hugo Santiago’s ‘Invasión’ – Tues 2 Dec 2014 – Birkbeck, Univ of London (CILAVS)

The Centre for Iberian and Latin American Visual Studies at Birkbeck
warmly invites you to the seminar

Nouvelle Vague Tango: Hugo Santiago’s Invasión
with
Brad Epps (University of Cambridge)

HUGO SANTIAGO - INVASION

Tuesday 2 December 6.00pm, Room 417, Malet Street (entrance via Torrington Sq.), Birkbeck, University of London, Main Building, London WC1E 7HX

Invasión, one of the most celebrated and least seen and studied ‘cult’ films in the history of Argentine cinema, is rife with secrets, enigmas, and riddles, ellipses and tropes of estrangement. Its screenplay was written by Hugo Santiago, its director, in collaboration with Jorge Luis Borges, that master of conundrum and paradox, from a story penned by Borges in collaboration with his friend Adolfo Bioy Casares. This paper examines some of the political and aesthetic implications of a film in which sound and sight are anything but unobstructed, communication and perception anything but straightforward, meaning anything but clear, and identity anything but sure and stable.

Brad Epps is Professor of Spanish and Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Cambridge
