Professor Paul Smith has been awarded a summer fellowship at the Clark Institute in Williamstown to pursue research into pictorial syntax, or how we construct the immaterial, virtual image in a picture from the material marks on its surface.
Congratulations to Philip Zidarov, an MA student in the department, who has won a scholarship from the Cini Foundation in Venice to pursue research at the Vittore Branca International Center for Studies of Italian Culture. Philip’s project, Visual Documents of Two Volcanic Eruptions: The Journeys of Images, examines the use and re-use of images of Etna and Vesuvius by artists, engravers, and printers through the 17th and 18th centuries.
History of Art PhD student, Stefano Colombo, has been awarded a Royal Historical Society conference travel grant. The grant will allow him to deliver a presentation at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America in Berlin, 26-28 March 2015. The title of the presentation is “The Commemorative Monument of the Fini Family in San Moisè: Strategies of Self-Promotion and Social Affirmation in Seventeenth-Century Venice".
The British Council has granted three work/study fellowships for this year's Venice Biennale. Over the course of the summer, three second year History of Art students will spend a month each working at the British Pavilion and doing independent research around the theme of this year's Architecture Biennale 'Absorbing Modernity'.
Dr Karen Lang has been awarded a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship entitled 'Philip Guston and The Allegory of Painting'.
The project will study the painting of the American artist Philip Guston’s last decade, 1970 to 1980, when he turned from an abstract to a figurative mode. It will demonstrate how his art opens an expanded concept of allegory and it will show what the academic discipline of the History of Art stands to gain from an understanding of allegory from a renewed perspective. In addition to allegory, the study will introduce the concepts of the untimely, the inexpressive and the transmission of tradition, which have the potential to complicate and invigorate our understanding of modernism and history. The project will run for three years from 01/10/2014 to 30/09/2017.
