Paint over Print
Thursday, February 19 and Friday, February 20, 2015
This conference brings together scholars to consider different aspects of hand-colored books and printed maps from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries: the materials and techniques used; the aesthetics of hand coloring; how color alters the meaning of the work in question; and how the addition of color represents an interpretation or reinterpretation of the work.
Paint over Print is organized by Chet Van Duzer, Independent Scholar, and Larry E. Tise, East Carolina University. The conference is sponsored by the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts, University of Pennsylvania Libraries; the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, University of Pennsylvania; the Workshop in the History of Material Texts, University of Pennsylvania; and the Conservation Center for Historic Art & Artifacts, Philadelphia, PA
