Abstract

This two-part session attends to artistic interchange in northern Europe and Scandinavia in the late medieval and early modern periods. The six papers across two sessions focus on artistic mobility and the ways in which art objects, artists, and patrons transgressed actual and conceptual borders. Such themes include, but are not limited to: the production and movement of sculpture and altarpieces in the North Sea region, the roles of the court and the Hanse trade network in facilitating artistic mobility, the deconstruction of modern historiographic and geo-political borders, and the methodological borders between conservation and art history, among others.
