Henry Moore

The Henry Moore Institute is a world-recognised centre for the study of sculpture in the heart of Leeds, funded by The Henry Moore Foundation. An award-winning exhibitions venue, research centre, library and sculpture archive, the Institute hosts a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences, lectures, research, and publications that aim to expand the understanding and scholarship of historical and contemporary sculpture.

The Institute invites applications for a two-year fellowship, beginning in Spring 2018. Based at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds, the Post-doctoral Fellow’s research focus should be pre-twentieth-century, paying particular attention to the ways in which history is engaged with in the present.

Event: Archaeometallurgical Medieval Bell Casting in Paderborn 23/06/208/-28/07/2018

PADERBORN

Zum 950 jährigen Jubliäum des hohen Domes in Paderborn und zum 1000 jährigen Jubiläum der Bartholomäuskapelle hat mich das Metropolitankapitel Paderborn mit der Aufgabe betraut im Rahmen der lebendigen Dombauhütte eine Bienenkorbglocke des 11. Jahrhunderts zu gießen.

Damit hat das Metropolitankapitel die einmalige Gelegenheit geschaffen, der Entstehung einer Bienenkorbglocke des 11. Jahrhunderts beiwohnen zu können. Vom 23.6. -27.7. 2018 werden sämtliche Arbeitsschritte im Abdinghof in Paderborn vor Ort ausgeführt, wobei ausschließlich historisch nachgewiesene Materialien verwendet werden.
Zur Anwendung kommt der Vorläufer des moderneren Lehmhemdverfahrens: Die älteren Bienenkorbglocken wurden mit dem Wachsausschmelzverfahren gegossen. Der Benediktinermönch Theohilus Presbyter schrieb dies im 12. Jahrhundert nieder und, dessen ungewöhnlich präzise Anweisungen bilden die Grundlage für die Rekonstruktion des Verfahrens. Es bietet sich hier also die Gelegenheit nicht nur der Entstehung der Glocke beizuwohnen, sondern auch dem Bronzegießer und Archäometallurgen zu allen Details Fragen zu stellen und sich in Wort und Tat überzeugen zu lassen, dass die Rekonstruktion auch funktioniert.

Call for Papers “To be [titled], or not to be [titled]? Art History and its “well-(un)known” masters…” at Nordik 25-27/10/2018, Copenhagen, Deadline 23/03/2018

Majestatis

It seems to be impossible to imagine an art history without names. In scientific practice the attribution to a “name” can significantly influence the perception and assessment of traditional works of art.
Since the beginning of the 20th century art historians – starting with Adolf Goldschmidt (1863-1944) or Wilhelm Vöge (1868-1952) – often have used to handle art works – especially medieval objects – by their mostly unknown masters (“Künstlerkunstgeschichte”). In Sweden, Johnny Roosval (1879-1965) e. g. finds himself in this tradition by documenting and classifying the inventory of medieval art on Gotland inventing names for artists such as the well-known masters “Byzantios”, “Majestatis” or “Calcarius”
