Call for Papers: Impressions of Colour: Rediscovering Colour in Early Modern Printmaking, ca 1400-1700

Impressions of Colour

Call for Papers Impressions of Colour: Rediscovering Colour in Early Modern Printmaking, ca 1400-1700 Cambridge, 8-9 December 2011 The absence of colour has been long been considered a defining characteristic of early modern printmaking. Colour printing from the hundreds of years between the invention of the printing press and 1700, when Christophe Le Blon developed the three-colour method we use today, has been thought of as rare and extraordinary. However, new research has revealed that bright inks added commercial value, didactic meaning and visual emphasis to subjects as diverse as anatomy, art, astronomy, biology, cartography, medicine, militaria and polemics in both single-sheet prints and books. Despite the significance and scale of these discoveries, the bias against colour continues to dominate…

Court culture in Vienna, Madrid, Brussels, Prague, Bratislava and Budapest will be examined and compared in detail – with a double focus, looking for interactions both within the Habsburg network…
