Paragons and Paper Bags. Early Modern Prints from the Consumer’s Perspective Jun 9, 2016 Rijksmuseum
Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Rijksmuseum is organising an international conference on early modern prints, ranging from precious artistic prints that were carefully collected to cheap printed images that were used and discarded. Paragons and Paper Bags. Early Modern Prints from the Consumer’s Perspective will take place at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam on Thursday 9 June 2016. The aim of this symposium is to further develop this new approach in order to achieve new insights on target audiences, the application and usage of prints, and special collection practices. On the occasion of this conference, the five print cabinets of the Rijksmuseum will show temporary displays on prints and consumers from the 16th to the 19th centuries. This exhibition will run from 13 April to 3 September 2016. Keynote lectures: Antony Griffiths (former Keeper of Prints and Drawings, British Museum, London), The Surviving Print, the Ephemeral Print and the Print Historian. Kathryn M. Rudy (Senior Lecturer in Art History at the University of St Andrews), Cut, Pasted, and Cut Again: The Original Function and Later Collection of Early Prints in Western Europe

Interpreting Shakespeare through Alderman Boydell's Print Collection Oct 15, 2016 Smart Museum of Art
Chicago, IL, USA

1:00 PM

In celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, University of Chicago Professor Emeritus and Shakespeare scholar David Bevington will analyze large engravings of scenes from Shakespeare's plays (and sometimes of scenes that are described without being actually staged, such as Ophelia's drowning in Hamlet), as illustrative of ways that the late eighteenth century interpreted important characters and events.

Commissioned by Alderman Boydell in the 1790s, the engravings depict several scenes for each of Shakespeare’s plays. The Smart Museum has a complete edition of the 167 prints, of which a small selection will be on view during the discussion.
