Intersecting Practices: Architecture and the Visual Arts c. 1300- c. 1700

Posted By Livia Lupi, Tuesday, June 16, 2020

Architectural structures are often a prominent feature in narrative images. They create striking settings, or are themselves the main subject of representation, from wood inlays to sculpted reliefs, from frescoes to panel and oil paintings, from illuminations and scroll paintings to print. They engage with the narrative whilst also providing a narrative of their own, as they testify to the architectural imagination of artists and communicative ability of architectural forms.

Yet, two-dimensional buildings are often discussed only as spatial devices articulating depth, and as lesser counterparts of large-scale three-dimensional structures. This approach hinders our understanding of the structural and ornamental ambition of many two-dimensional buildings, which can present architectural solutions that were adopted only decades later in built structures. It also prevents us from fully recognising the cultural value attached to architectural forms and their rhetorical dimension.

These sessions aim to challenge traditional approaches to the representation of architecture in the visual arts in order to bridge the historiographical gap between art and architectural history, as well as furthering research on the intersection of artistic and architectural practice. Whilst focussed on the period between c. 1300 to c. 1700, the sessions intend to explore the topic from a broad geographical and cultural perspective. Therefore, proposals exploring material in any medium from any part of the world are welcome. Papers may address a variety of topics, including but not limited to: 

  • Interaction and exchange between artists and architects
  • Craftsmen working as both artists and architects
  • The roles architecture plays within a narrative image
  • The symbolism of architecture
  • The relationship between representation of architecture and built structures
  • The development of architectural project drawing in relation to painted and sculpted buildings
  • Ornamental originality and structural ingenuity in both two- and three-dimensional architecture

Please send proposals to Livia Lupi (livia.lupi@warwick.ac.uk) by 31 July 2020. They should include a title (max. 15 words), an abstract (max. 150 words) and the candidate's brief CV (max. one page).
