New Approaches to the Art of Spanish Naples

Posted By Jesse Locker, Sunday, April 23, 2017

Long overshadowed by Florence, Rome, Venice, and Bologna, in recent years, scholars have come to recognize that Naples—the largest city in early modern Italy—was a vibrant crossroads of cultural exchange that attracted artists, patrons, collectors, and connoisseurs from Madrid, Valencia, Palermo, Genoa, and Antwerp. However, scholarship on Neapolitan art still lags behind that of other Italian capitals, often bogged down by thorny issues of attribution, documentation, and chronology. This session aims to explore the artistic and architectural heritage of the city in light of its position as an international capital, situated between the Papal States and the broader Hispanic and Mediterranean worlds. New methodologies, innovative approaches to old problems, and interdisciplinary perspectives on Neapolitan art are especially encouraged.

Proposals for a 20-minute paper should include a preliminary title, an abstract of 150 words, a very brief curriculum vitae (300 words maximum), and keywords. Please send to Jesse Locker,, by Monday, May 22, 2017.
