Come and listen to the Gombrichs and Beltings of tomorrow! Eight students from France and the UK have been selected through a special call for papers on the theme: ‘France & the UK: Artworks in Dialogue’, for which they were invited to draw out, explore and analyze echos between two works of art, one by a French artist and the other by a British artist.
Join us to hear the authors of the eight best papers present the inspired and thought-provoking pairings they have chosen, revealing unexpected aspects of the differences and similarities between French and British culture.
Student presentations will be opened by a special talk on ‘Theory and practice of art in France and Britain in the long-18th century’ by Adriano Aymonino and Jonathan Yarker.
With sincere thanks to the members of the jury: Catherine Robert (Higher Education Attachée for the United Kingdom), Neville Rowley ((Ecole du Louvre & Wissenschaflicher Mitarbeiter, Bode–Museum) and John-Paul Stonard (art historian).
