The painting of the Saints Christopher, Jerome and Louis of Toulouse in the church of San Giovanni Grisotomo, Venice, is one of the late works of Giovanni Bellini (1437-1516). It encapsulates several of the problems that are on the ‘Bilderfahrzeuge’ group’s mind.

Annual colloquium of the department of Art History, Film and Visual Studies and the Journal of Art Historiography

Organisers: Lauren Dudley, Jamie Edwards, Faith Trend and Erin Shakespeare.

This seems in many ways my ideal first contribution to reports and reviews for the ‘Bilderfahrzeuge’ blog. The conference took place a couple of weeks into the new project here but also took me back to the familiar haunts the University of Birmingham, where I did my MA and PhD studies. The conference was kindly hosted by the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, an art and numismatic collection which maintains close links with academic research and teaching. It was also where for a short period in 2013 I worked as curator of the numismatic exhibition, ‘Faith and Fortune: visualizing the divine on Byzantine and early Islamic coinage’, alongside my friend and colleague, Daniel Reynolds. The exhibition is open until January 2015 so if you are in the Midlands, take a look!

Nueva corónica y buen gobierno (1615)

Nueva corónica y buen gobierno (1615) by Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala is a unique example of how words and images may wander across and beyond traditional geographical, cultural, and disciplinary boundaries. His indigenous origins and ties to and knowledge of mitmaq and Inca cultures, together with his education and experience in Spanish colonial Peru enabled Guaman Poma to produce this unique document/monument. The ways in which his visual and verbal rhetorics are informed by Inca mythology and history, Christian homiletics, and a fusion of European and native styles make this text exemplary for the Bilderfahrzeuge project. Whether depicting himself journeying to deliver his manuscript to the King, reimagining the Garden of Eden, or representing an Inca mappamundi, Guaman Poma traces the kind of Wanderstraßen that can and should motivate the future of iconology.

Workshop: The Rhetoric of Images. Translating between Disciplines and Cultures

Bilderfahrzeuge Workshop

The Warburg Institute, 8-9 July 2014

Organised by Christopher Johnson (Bilderfahrzeuge Project) and Peter Mack (Warburg)

Speakers: Linda Báez Rubí (Bilderfahrzeuge), Mary Carruthers (New York University and All Souls College, Oxford), Christopher D. Johnson (Bilderfahrzeuge), Andrew Laird (University of Warwick), Peter Mack (Warburg Institute) and Johannes von Müller (Bilderfahrzeuge)

This two-day workshop aimed to explore how iconology can be understood through different forms of rhetoric, rhetoric that allows mobility between visual and verbal media, and across material, physical, geographical, cultural, and disciplinary spaces. These various forms of mobility, we propose, are not only mutually constitutive, but also can be illuminated by examining them in light of the theory and practice of rhetoric.

Chiaroscuro: Renaissance Woodcuts from the Collections of Georg Baselitz and the Albertina, Vienna, Royal Academy of Arts, 15 March – 8 June 2014

The history of political images is indeed rich in topoi. One of them is the inseparable conjunction of Emperor Maximilian I (1449-1519) and early modern prints. Hence, it should not be a surprise to be welcomed by the Habsburg at the entrance of an exhibition of Renaissance Chiaroscuro Woodcuts. Under the title Renaissance Impressions: Chiarascuro woodcuts from the collection of Georg Baselitz and the Albertina, Vienna the Royal Academy of Arts, London, has assembled a selection of works either loaned by the Albertina, Vienna, or coming from the extensive private collection of the contemporary artist Georg Baselitz.
