The CARC Workshop 2017. Transmission: The Migration of Iconography in Classical Art - 28-29/09/2017,

This workshop builds upon CARC's recent events dedicated to Roman replicas and Greek artists. Through the contributions of international speakers and lively, informal debate, it will aim to cast new light on ancient imagery and on the lessons that can be learned from examining its adaptive success. The workshop will focus on mythological scenes (but not exclusively) and on Hellenistic and Roman periods (but not exclusively). Probable topics for discussion include: the evidence for and against 'copy-books'; the transmission of imagery between luxury art and stone reliefs such as Roman mythological sarcophagi; the role of ceramics and plaster models as vehicles for transmission; mythological mosaics; the movement of imagery across Roman provinces; and the persistence of classical schemes in the illuminated manuscripts of Late Antiquity.

FECHA/DATE/DATA: 28-29/09/2017

LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Lecture Theatre, Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, Oxford (Oxford, England)
