Termin übernehmen

Many of the most recognized art historians of the last two centuries have drawn to study art in all its forms. Burckhardt, Morelli, Cavalcaselle, Justi, Wölfflin, Warburg, Baltrušaitis, Schapiro, Steinberg, Damisch all used the graphic instrument to see, understand and explain painting, architecture or sculpture. The purpose of this workshop is to evaluate how drawing can contribute to the emergence, production and transmission of a specific knowledge about artistic objects. In this perspective, a special attention will be devoted to the epistemic potentials of the graphic tool.
