From 3-7 June 2019 the Istituto Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici in Naples will be holding a study course for doctoral and postdoctoral candidates on the topic of Baroque Neapolitan art, entitled ‘La pittura napoletana del Seicento. Nuove prospettive di ricerca’. The seminar will be led by Professor Sebastian Schütze (University of Vienna). While the main language of the seminar is Italian, presentations may also be given in English.

The seminar is intended as an opportunity for early-career art historians to reflect both theoretically and methodologically on research into Baroque Neapolitan art and to contribute to the development of new models for a more comprehensive and contextualised analysis and interpretation of 17th-century Neapolitan painting.
