Emile Gallé Centenary: La Lorraine Artiste


Centre for the Study of Visual and Literary Cultures in France at the University of Bristol


18 and 19 September 2004


Deadline: 31 March 2004


Upon the centenary of Emile Gallé's death, this conference will explore
the rich cultural milieu of his native Nancy and Lorraine. Gallé was an
extraordinary polymath: artist, author, critic, political activist,
educator, botanist.

To contextualise Gallé's career and its impact, papers are invited on a
range of themes relevant to the artistic, literary, historical and
scientific cultures of this complex region. The focus will be primarily
upon the nineteenth century in which Gallé lived and worked but
consideration of the eighteenth century, which played such an important
role on the formation of the aesthetics and style of the Ecole de Nancy,
would be welcome. The artistic climate of Nancy and Lorraine in the early
twentieth century after Gallé's death in 1904 would also be highly
relevant

This conference to be held on 18 and 19 September 2004 is organised under
the auspices of the Centre for the Study of Visual and Literary Cultures
in France at the University of Bristol Conference proceedings will be
considered for publication in an RAE accredited internet journal Art on
the line(http://www.waspress.co.uk/journals/artontheline/).
