“The Research Database ArsRoma: Another Way to Look at Roman Early Baroque Painting”
Prof Dr Sybille Ebert-Schifferer
Director Emerita, Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max Planck Institute for Art History, Rome

Painting in the capital of papal power underwent a transformation around 1600. Fueled by profound social and political change, diverse stylistic approaches arose. Not all artists, however, thrived in this competitive environment. On what factors did a “successful style” depend? Drawing upon the ArsRoma database and the rich and complex data in it, Prof Dr Sybille Ebert-Schifferer will consider this innovative research vehicle and its contributions to our current understanding of early Baroque painting in Rome.

This talk is free and open to the public. A reception follows.
