Call for Papers: Rebirth/Revival. The Rediscovery of the Styles of the Past in the 19th Century. MDCCC1800 no. 10 (2021)
The international scientific digital journal MDCCC1800 intends to celebrate the tenth issue by contributing to prepare the 200th anniversary of the death of Antonio Canova (2022) with a debate on the artistic rebirths and revivals of the styles of the arts of the past that have affected “the long nineteenth century” in Europe. This is a way of raising the public’s attention to the central role of the arts in society, with particular reference to the importance of collective and individual action in the creation of original works designed to mould and decorate several places in Europe and the world, as well as exerting a deep influence on the political and cultural environments of both the 19th and 20th century. For the monographic section of this issue we therefore welcome original and unpublished contributions that investigate, for example, the traditional or avant-garde academic training of individual artists, architects, photographers, craftsmen investigated through readings, sketches, drawings; the study of individual or collective works inspired by one or more styles of the past, both pictorial cycles and architectural and/or urban and/or restoration projects; the historiographic thought of art and architecture critics; the research on the formation of public and private collections such as the creation of museums and collections; the incidence and success of individual and/or collective artistic enterprises in society.
A list of suggested topics, by no means exhaustive, includes:
- The traditional or avant-garde academic training of individual artists, architects, photographers, artisans
- The investigation of individual or collective works inspired by one or more artistic styles of the past
- The historiographic thought of art and architecture critics
