Radical stylistic changes in Baroque painting
Catherine Puglisi, Professor of Modern Art History at Rutgers University in the United States, will give a series of four lectures at the École Pratique des Hautes Études from January 11 to February 1, 2019.
Specialist in Baroque art, Catherine Puglisi has published Francesco Albani's catalogue raisonné (Yale University Press, 1999), a monograph on Caravaggio (Phaidon Press, 1998), and articles on Bologna art, Venetian art, and recently on the iconography of the Man of Sorrows in the art of Venice and its territories, the subject of her new book in collaboration with William Barcham (Art, Faith, and the Man of Sorrows in the Venetian World, Brepols, 2019). Together with W. Barcham, she organized the exhibition "Passion in Venice: The Man of Sorrows" at the Museum of Biblic Art in New York in 2011, publishing the catalogue and the proceedings of the symposium that addressed this theme. Her current research explores stylistic transformations in Baroque painting.
The lectures will take place at the Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art (INHA) in the Walter Benjamin room
