The Introduction of the Raphaelesque Style

J.L. de Jong

The Introduction of the Raphaelesque Style at the Italian Courts in the
Sixteenth Century

During the international congress on 'Cultural Crises in Art and
Literature. Reflection and Reaction', organized by the University of
Groningen in The Netherlands (November 20 - 22), Thursday the 21st will be
devoted to 'The Introduction of the Raphaelesque Style at the Italian Courts in
the Sixteenth Century'.

The main questions to be discussed are:
the motivation of Italian rulers to introduce the 'new' Raphaelesque style
of painting at their court the motives of the various painters to adopt this
style and to spread it to other places the reaction of local artists to the
introduction of the Raphaelesque style: did they adopt it smoothly or did they
oppose it? Can intrigues and clashes between artists at the various courts be
explained as the result of conflicting views on artistic matters and loyalties?
