About the exhibition

Autour de l’exposition

Renewed interest in the French Renaissance and the growing number of exhibitions on this subject has emphasized the need to give sculpture more exposure. Therefore, the National Institute for the History of Art, in partnership with the Council for the Department of Aube and surrounding areas joined together to organise a symposium to be held from 1st to 3rd October 2009. This meeting will take place in Paris and in Troyes. The Agence Nationale de la Recherche [National Agency for Research] is also a partner.

The convention will take elements from the exhibition "The Remarkable 16th: Masterpieces of sculpture in Champagne" in order to compare research against one of the most extensive sources of 16th century art, the Champagne region.

A scientific committee made up of the following members is in charge of the symposium:
- Geneviève Bresc-Bautier (Paris, Musée du Louvre)
- Thierry Crépin-Leblond (Ecouen, Musée national de la Renaissance)
- Bertrand Jestaz (Paris, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes)
- Pascal Julien (Toulouse, Toulouse-le Mirail University)
- Guy-Michel Leproux (Paris, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes)
- Mary L. Levkoff (Los Angeles County Museum of Art)
- Philippe Sénéchal (Amiens, Picardie Jules Verne University)
- Henri Zerner (Harvard University)

Coordinator: - Marion Boudon-Machuel (Lecturer - CESR/scientific advisor - INHA)
