Nuevas aportaciones al conocimiento de la influencia del arte de los Países Bajos en España, siglos XV y XVI. Congreso Internacional en Lovaina, 4 al 6 de febrero 2016. Inscripción abierta hasta el 31 de enero


 

La Fundación Carlos de Amberes colabora en la difusión de este Congreso Internacional, organizado por el Illuminare-Centre for the Study of Medieval Art, Lovaina www.illuminare.be  

 

En 2010, Illuminare-Centre for the Study of Medieval Art (KU Lovaina) adquirió el archivo del eminente historiador del arte belga, Prof. Jan Karel Steppe (1918-2009). Steppe es conocido internacionalmente por sus investigaciones sobre la influencia del arte de los Países Bajos en España durante los siglos XV y XVI. En primavera de 2016 toda la documentación habrá sido inventariada y será accesible online. Para celebrarlo, el Centro Illuminare organiza este congreso internacional sobre uno de los temas de investigación más estimados por Steppe.

El congreso se centra en una gran variedad de géneros, desde pintura y tapicería hasta paños y astrolabios. Dedica especial atención a las fuerzas conductoras del mercado de arte, como artistas, patronos, coleccionistas y comerciantes y, teniendo en cuenta aspectos culturales, religiosos, políticos y socio-económicos, se propone dar nueva luz al impacto que tuvo el arte de los Países Bajos en la Península Ibérica en los siglos XV y XVI.
