The Instituto de História da Arte, partner of the interdisciplinary research project “Crossing borders: History, materials and techniques of Portuguese painters from 1850-1918. Romanticism, Naturalism and Modernism” (PTDC/EAT-EAT/113612/2009, funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, Lisbon), is organizing an international workshop that will take place at the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas, the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga and the Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea-Museu do Chiado, in 25, 26, 27 and 29 of September. During the workshop, the project’s researchers are going to announce the results of their investigation: Ângela Ferraz, Diogo Sanchez and Marta Félix on nineteenth-century painting, and Cristina Montagner, Vanessa Otero and Ana Margarida Silva on early twentieth-century painting. The project will be presented by Profs. Maria João Melo (IP) and Márcia Vilarigues, of the Departamento de Conservação, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
The workshop constitutes also the first step towards a much-needed opening to the national historiographies and pictorial traditions of other countries. It counts with the participation of a number of distinguished scholars that have been invited to share their knowledge and expertise on nineteenth-century landscape painting and the theoretical and methodological problems encountered in its study. Javier Barón (head of the department of nineteenth century painting at the Museo del Prado) will discuss Spanish landscape painting during the nineteenth century; Tatiana Karpova (deputy director general on scientific work, State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow) will talk about Russian landscape painting in its international context;Edward J. Sullivan (Helen Gould Sheppard Professor; Professor of Art History at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, New York University) will analyze images of the Caribbean from 1770 till the end of the nineteenth century; and, finally, Nóra Veszprémi (Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest) will talk about the representation of national landscape in nineteenth-century Hungary. From the Instituto de História da Arte, Raquel Henriques da Silva (Director, IHA, FCSH/UNL) and Foteini Vlachou (postdoctoral researcher, IHA, FCSH/UNL – Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian) also participate, with communications on Portuguese landscape painting of the nineteenth century.
The workshop also includes a session referring to early modernist painting in Portugal, with Adelaide Duarte (postdoctoral researcher, IHA, FCSH/UNL) discussing Amadeo de Sousa Cardoso’s painting, revisited through the material and technical analysis of his painting. For this session, Christopher Adams (The Estorick Collection, London) has been invited to discuss Italian futurism in the French context, and to participate in a debate on the puzzling so-called Cabeça de Santa-Rita, another reference of Portuguese modernism.
