Artes glendinning lecture 2020: Appropiation and cultural transfer in the early modern iberian world

4 Mar 2020 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


The Warburg Institute



This is an annual event in honour of the great Hispanist Nigel Glendinning, organised by ARTES Iberian & Latin American Visual Culture Group, supported by the Instituto Cervantes, and hosted in 2020 by the Warburg Institute.

Benito Navarrete Prieto from the Universidad de Alcalá is going to talk about the: ‘Appropriation and Cultural Transfer in the Early Modern Iberian World’ In his influential work The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II Fernand Braudel regretted that: ‘We have museum catalogues but no artistic atlases’. Since then historians and art historians alike such as Luisa Elena Alcalá, Peter Burke and Jean Michel Massing among others, have explored cultural appropriations to make sense of what Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann has famously called the geographies of early modern art.

This lecture examines forms of assimilation and reception of images, and aims to contribute to the current scholarly conversation concerning early modern artistic circulations. The method of appropriation through which a canonical image is reinterpreted is fundamental to understanding the transferral of images within the Iberian World. This mechanism of appropriation is useful to examine the range of visual identities that configured the map of cultural circulations in the period, and is thus a useful theoretical framework for the study of global art history.
