Gothic Ivories: Content and Context
Saturday 5 July 2014, The Courtauld Institute of Art, London
Sunday 6 July 2014, The British Museum, London
Jointly organised by The British Museum and The Courtauld Gothic Ivories Project, this event follows on from the successful 2012 conference Gothic Ivories: Old Questions New Directions (V&A – Courtauld). Celebrating new research on Gothic ivory carving, papers will focus on a wide range of topics arising from the study of Gothic ivory carving and Embriachi pieces, related to the themes of content and context.
Themed sessions will be dedicated to questions of iconography, sources and original use and context, research into provenance, relationships with other media, ivory carving in the 16th century, history of collecting in the 19th and 20th century.
