Drawing In/Screening Off. Metaphors of the Veil Beyond Painting

Workshop

A workshop by the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz - Max-Planck-Institut and the History of Art Department of the University of York

This workshop discusses the potent metaphors of the veil as elaborated upon by modern Italian artists and architects. It will examine Alberti's use of the veil in the conceptualization of perspectival constructions, Pollaiuolo's multi-tiered gauzes, the architectural screens in Neapolitan convents and encompass Maderno's, Corradini’s and Monti's statue velate.

A collaboration of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz - Max-Planck-Institut and the History of Art Department of the University of York (from where all the speakers come), the workshop unfolds as three papers. Its rationale is to offer a way of thinking about the metaphors of the veil that transcend painting, as Helen Hills argues in the final contribution.
