Seminar: Russia in Europe/Europe in Russia: Cross-Cultural Connections in a Recentered Art World

Event Date: September 23, 2021

Sponsored by the Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture (HECAA)

Thursday 23 September at 9:00 Los Angeles, 12:00 New York, 17:00 London, 18:00 Moscow

Registration required by 22 September:

In the eighteenth century, Russia emerged as a truly European power. Yet despite the presence of Russians in Europe and Europeans in Russia, the vast Russian Empire continued to be perceived as a quasi-oriental land. As a result, those artists and works of art that moved from West to East were – and sometimes still are – all too often seen as vanishing into a distant realm. This panel will highlight current research on the Russian art world and its engagement with Western Europe in the eighteenth century. Short presentations will examine the importance of the French tradition to St. Petersburg’s Imperial Academy of Arts, Russian artists’ travel to the Netherlands and Paris, Russian patronage of Venetian art, connections between Russian and British art as reflected in portraits by Rokotov and Gainsborough, and Russian collecting of classical antiquities.
