Abstract

This is the first of a four-session series aiming to discuss how the transformative character of the Trecento is indebted to cultural exchanges, movement of artists and patrons, circulation of models and ideas across Italy, Europe, the Mediterranean and beyond. This session focuses on Italy, France, and England. Paper -a reinterprets the diffusion of English alabasters in the Medieval Mediterranean. Paper -b explores Bologna’s multiple ties to France and England through a discussion of lesser-known 14th-century artworks.
