Despite Rudolf Wittkower's declaration that Florence became a "stagnant
backwater" after the 16th century, recent scholarship has demonstrated
the wealth of artistic activity that flourished in the city after that
date. We seek to re-evaluate this art historical period by bringing
together research that highlights and nuances the artistic, cultural,
and intellectual riches of post-Renaissance Florence. We invite papers
that consider any aspect of the period from around 1600 until the death
of the last Medici in 1743. Paper topics might include the
historiography of the period, literary academies and artists, the
interchange between art and science, female patronage, women artists, or
the intersection of art and music.

Please follow CAA instructions for submitting proposals, which should be
sent directly to the session chairs by May 2, 2011:
