THE ETERNAL BAROQUE: STUDIES IN HONOUR OF JENNIFER MONTAGU
6-7 September 2013, The Wallace Collection, London. Dr. Jennifer Montagu, LVO, CBE, is a world-renowned art historian whose name has become synonymous with the study of Italian Baroque sculpture. In addition to her groundbreaking archival research about Alessandro Algardi, she has elevated the connoisseurship of Roman bronzes to an academic discipline and fundamentally changed the way art historians think about Baroque sculpture in general. Her approach to the organization of ateliers and to the complex relationships between patron, designer and craftsman has established a new standard for methodology, not only in Baroque sculpture but also for the study of all early-modern European sculpture. In honor of her immeasurable contribution, the foremost scholars in the field of Italian Baroque sculpture will present papers in her honor on 6–7 September 2013 at the Wallace Collection, London, Manchester Square, London: Friday, 6 September 2013, 10am–6pm; Saturday, 7 September 2013, 10am–5pm. Ticket prices: 10 GBP per day. Advanced registration required; please e-mail to register.
