National Gallery, London, 20 March 2014
The National Gallery, London, hosted a workshop on Changing Perceptions of German Art on 20 March 2014, held in conjunction with the National Gallery exhibition Strange Beauty, co-curated by Dr Jeanne Nuechterlein (University of York) and Dr Susan Foister (Deputy-Director and Curator of Early Netherlandish, German and British Painting, National Gallery).
The workshop began with three papers and discussion from scholars connected to the National Gallery and investigating its collection history:
Dr Susan Foister on the varied histories of Cranach paintings in the National Gallery collection;
Nicola Sinclair (CDA University of York/ National Gallery) on the acquisition and dispersal of the Krüger Collection;
Dr Susanna Avery-Quash (Senior Research Curator (History of Collecting), National Gallery) on the reception of early Italian art at the National Gallery during the nineteenth century.
These papers were followed by a Group Discussion led by Dr Matthew Potter (Northumbria University), Professor Liz Prettejohn (University of York) and Dr Christian Weikop (The University of Edinburgh).
