           Madonne. Reframing, Coronation and Re-Installation of Marian Images in Early Modern Spaces

 

 

 

 

Early modern efforts to reinvigorate the diverse plethora of Marian sculptures and paintings reflect the enduring position of the Virgin in both Catholic and Protestant forms of worship. Artists transformed and re-created Lucan icons through referential and innovative acts of reframing. Simultaneously, the coronation of images of the Virgin and Child within Catholic cult sites emblematizes the growing trend for normative presentations of the Virgin Mary. This conference seeks to explore the ways in which these alterations affected devotional interactions and the cult of images in the early modern era. Contributions include cases of coronation, restoration and reframing of Marian images (including Byzantine or medieval icons, Trecento and Quattrocento imagery, and early modern designs) in major and minor artistic and cultic centers across early modern Europe. By examining cult imagery of the Virgin Mary in what has been defined as the age of art, this conference explores the local re-appropriations and the visual norms of sacred representations throughout the early modern period.
