CALL FOR PAPER: GIOVANNI BELLINI “The Best Painter of All” (A. Dürer) – deadline April 15, 2016



Inter­na­tio­nal Con­fe­ren­ce, Veni­ce, Fon­da­zio­ne Gior­gio Cini, Octo­ber 27th – 28th 

The Fon­da­zio­ne Gior­gio Cini is orga­ni­zing an inter­na­tio­nal sym­po­sium on Gio­van­ni Bel­li­ni (c. 1433 – 1516) and Vene­tian Renais­san­ce pain­ting. Bel­li­ni was the grea­te­st fif­teenth-cen­tu­ry Vene­tian pain­ter and, accor­ding to Dürer,  still the “best” at the turn of the six­teenth cen­tu­ry. During his long career, he inven­ted and renewed the tech­ni­que and sty­le of Vene­tian pain­ting, and tran­smit­ted his resul­ts to a lar­ge group of stu­den­ts and fol­lo­wers.

The con­fe­ren­ce aims to ana­ly­ze his enti­re career, not lea­st in rela­tion to the arti­stic and cul­tu­ral con­text, and in par­ti­cu­lar will encou­ra­ge fur­ther stu­dy on the fol­lo­wing the­mes:

  • Bel­li­ni and the inven­tion of the altar­pie­ce
  • Bel­li­ni and devo­tio­nal pain­ting
  • Bel­li­ni and the clas­si­cal world
  • Bel­li­ni and the land­sca­pe
  • Bellini’s heirs and his “crea­ti”


The con­fe­ren­ce will be held at the Fon­da­zio­ne Gior­gio Cini on the Island of San Gior­gio Mag­gio­re, Veni­ce, Octo­ber 27th – 28th.

The pro­cee­dings will sub­se­quen­tly be publi­shed.

Con­fe­ren­ce Com­mit­tee: Keith Chri­stian­sen, Danie­le Fer­ra­ra, Davi­de Gaspa­rot­to, Peter Hum­frey, Vin­cen­zo Man­ci­ni, Anchi­se Tem­pe­sti­ni, Gio­van­ni Vil­la
