THOSE WILDER SORTS OF PAINTINGS: REVISITING MURALS IN BRITAIN 1600-1750

Murray Edwards College,
University of Cambridge
16 September 2016

 

Our 2016 seminar focused on mural painting and its place within the cultural life of Britain and Europe in the 17th and early 18th centuries, highlighting new ways of looking at the work, its artists and patrons. Our aim was to stimulate interest in this often overlooked genre and its place in British art-historical studies. We exchanged ideas about the history, meaning, workshop practice and iconography of mural art, as well as its significance within contemporary British and Continental visual cultures.
