The I SIMPOSI MAGISTRI CATALONIAE: Artista anònim, artista amb signatura. Identitat, estatus i rol de l'artista en l'art medieval will be held next 7-8 November 2014. This International Symposium has been organized by our Research Project MAGISTRI CATALONIAE, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Museu Episcopal de Vic, with the collaboration of the Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres de la UAB.
The Symposium is based on the research carried out as part of our Research Project MAGISTRI CATALONIAE. There wil be presented some of the results of that research and it aims to provide some important answers to the issues related with the medieval artist and the processes involved in the creation of the work of art. Some important questions will be answered by combining several approaches. The main ones are the relation between the masters, the workshops and their patrons, the problems associated to the techniques and artists' training, their laical or ecclesiastical condition, the issues connected with the signature and the anonymity, as well as artists' social status.
Registration process is available.
