Vom 17. bis 18. September 2015 findet im Rijksmuseum und im Trippenhuis in Amsterdam die Tagung Art and Science in the Early Modern Low Countries (ca 1560-1730) statt.
Zitat von der Tagungswebsite:
„The conference Art and Science in the Early Modern Low Countries wants to contribute to the dialogue between experts in the history of art, historians of science, and all those interested in the visual and material culture of the sixteenth and seventeenth-century Netherlands. The conference focuses on historical objects, images, works of art or texts that represent the combination of art and science, and looks at their origin and intended audience. Sessions are, amongst others, devoted to the culture of collecting; modes of representing living nature; the influence of new optical devices on the arts; and the impact of travels abroad on representations of the world.“
