Alonso Berruguete and His Time: Art between Italy and Spain

Posted By Alison K. Frazier, Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Alonso Berruguete and his Time: Art between Italy and Spain

Alonso Berruguete (1488-1561) is one of the most celebrated artists of the Spanish Renaissance. After spending his formative years in Italy, he returned to Spain in 1518, where he developed a style of daring modernity. Yet his place in Art History continues to be diminished, especially in the United States. In 2019, the National Gallery of Art in Washington will offer an important corrective by hosting the first exhibition of Berruguete’s work outside Spain. The American Academy in Rome is pleased to sponsor this panel, which looks forward to that exhibition: we seek papers that treat aspects of sculpture in Spain during the age of Berruguete.

We are particularly interested in contributions on:

- Berruguete as multi-media artist—sculptor, draftsman, painter

- Berruguete and the dilemma of connoisseurship—new and old attributions

- Spanish artists in Italy; Italian artists in Spain

- The broader artistic and cultural environment in which Berruguete and his Spanish contemporaries worked  

Abstracts for 20-minute papers are due by 3 June 2017. Include title, abstract of no more than 150 words, at least two keywords, and a short bio of no more than 300 words.

Please send your submission to C.D. Dickerson ( and Fernando Loffredo ( Applicants will be notified by June 5.
