Naples at Compton Verney

Wednesday 17 June 2015, 9.00AM

Baroque Naples at Compton Verney‌Compton Verney holds one of the richest collections of Neapolitan art in the world outside of Naples, but it is little known and little studied.  This event turns the spotlight of scholarship onto the collection in relation to important new research on Naples, focused on issues of colonialism within Europe, telluric philosophy, skin and surfaces.

Papers will be presented by Helen Hills (University of York), Joris van Gastel (University of Hamburg), Letizia Treves (The National Gallery), Helena Hammond (Roehampton University) Josephine Neil (King's College London), Bogdan Cornea (University of York) and Paola Vitolo (University of Catania). It is hoped that gallery visits will be conducted by PhD students from WRoCAH (White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities).

Staff and PhD students of the department will be participating.
