Conference on illuminated manuscripts

From: Lieve Watteeuw <lieve.watteeuw<-a>
Date: Saturday, February 22, 2014
"Inside Illuminations: Art Technical Research and the Illuminated
Brussels, KIK-IRPA
5 June 2014

Program and Registration


Researching the components and technology of Western Manuscript
Illuminations in the laboratory has become more widespread during
the last decade. The great diversity of techniques, materials and
tools used by illuminators to illustrate and decorate texts has
become a challenging topic for scholars of manuscripts and medieval
painting. Art technical research on illuminated manuscripts provides
insights into provenance, workshop practice and the
interrelationships between painting on parchment and painting on
panel, wall and cloth. For conservators of manuscripts, moreover,
collaboration with laboratories of scientific imaging and
non-destructive material testing has become an important factor in
making decisions about treatments and interventions. The conference
Inside Illuminations is intended to advance interdisciplinary
research on technical art history and the medieval illuminated
manuscript by providing a forum for scholars working on specific
manuscripts, on illuminators' practice and on recently developed
research tools and databases.

The conference is organized by the Royal Institute for Cultural
Heritage (Brussels), Illuminare (Centre for the Study of Medieval
Art, KU Leuven) and UCL (Louvain-la-Neuve).
