Abstract

This session brings together different approaches to artistic activity in the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era taking into consideration the three main agents involved in its development: patrons, artists and publics. Tradition and change will be specially considered in a period bordering the Renaissance, offering the possibility to examine the reception and keeping of the medieval artistic heritage. The diversity of the geographical areas covered – the Crown of Castile and Central Europe -, as well as the plurality of audiences to which the works of art in discussion were created for -pilgrims, regular orders, country people -, aim to emphasize the diversity of this period regarding the processes of commission and reception.
