Mapping Rubens' Emulations of Titian: A Project in the Digital Humanities

  • Starts: 5:30 pm on Wednesday, April 4, 2012
  • Ends: 7:00 pm on Wednesday, April 4, 2012
Delivered by Dr. Antien Knaap, guest curator of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels. Dr. Knaap will present her recent work on the emulative practices of the 17th-century Flemish painter, Peter Paul Rubens, and, in particular, his interest in the painted works by the 16th-century Venetian painter, Titian. The artistic relationship between the two painters complicates our understanding of the role of imitation and influence in art history when the larger context of collecting practices, artists' itineraries, and viewing habits are explored through digital mapping. Dr. Knaap will share how re-categorization of historical knowledge through emerging digital platforms can fundamentally reshape our conception of art history. Supported by the Boston University Center for the Humanities.
