The focus of the conference will be on the emerging international markets and their implications for the artistic production in Early Modern Europe (1550-1800), in particular in relation to the trade in paintings and artists’ materials. We welcome contributions from a diverse range of fields, including technical art history, art history, conservation and science. Themes for presentations may address: – Preferences for painters’ materials and paintings in/from specific geographical areas (quality differences, availability, economic considerations, demand from patrons and traditions) – Impacts of imported paintings and painting materials on local producers, artists, connoisseurs and art theorists (competition, usage and reception) – Conditions in which these products (materials and paintings) were produced and traded (workshop practice, trade routes and dealer networks) Please submit a preliminary title, short abstract (max 500 words) and a short biography (max 100 words) for oral and/or poster presentations. Please send your contribution to cats.conference@smk.dk for consideration by the Scientific Committee. For any enquiries please contact the CATS research coordinator Sanne Bouwmeester at cats-cons@smk.dk. The conference will be held in English, and the deadline for abstract submission is February 1, 2018. The oral conference presentations will be considered for the peer-reviewed CATS Proceedings (online and hard copy) to be published in collaboration with Archetype Publications Ltd. in spring 2019.
