Institut National d‘Histoire de l‘Art, Paris, 26-27 June 2008
By Isabelle Flour
The Institut National d‘Histoire de l‘Art (INHA) in Paris will host this year the second session of the Paris/London seminar convened by two renowned architectural historians, Dana Arnold (School of Humanities, University of Southampton) and Jean-Louis Cohen (Institute of Fine Arts, University of New York), as part of the INHA research program on Architectural History directed by Jean-Philippe Garric.
This seminar follows on from a first meeting held in London on 26 and 27 January 2007, which examined the interactions between the urbanism and architecture of London and Paris from 1650 to 1950. The next seminar of 26 and 27 June at the INHA will be devoted to the relationship between the two capitals in the 19th and 20th centuries, and will focus more particularly on the representation of the town, and the green spaces.
This ground-breaking seminar will fill the remarkable absence of art historians in cross-Channel cultural transfer studies, a field which has much more been examined by historians specialised in cultural history. Let us hope that this seminar will give the necessary impetus for art historians to explore this field of studies generally overlooked.
