Predella, Journal of Visual Arts solicits proposals for its June 2014 (no. 35) issue, which will be dedicated to Tuscan painting in the Eighteenth Century. It will be edited by Emanuele Pellegrini and Stefano Renzoni. This issue aims to bring new contributions on the activity of Tuscan painters in their homeland and abroad, and at the same time to shed light on foreign painters active in Tuscany throughout the Settecento. Furthermore, this Predella monograph intends to offer new evidences on less studied topics, both individual artists (like Luigi Garzi, Vincenzo Meucci, Giovanni Battista Tempesti), and general problems (the relationships of Tuscan artists with other capital cities like Rome or Venice, the diffusion of “popular painting”). Proposals of no more than 300 words should be submitted by email, with a cover letter or a 2 page CV, to the attention of Emanuele Pellegrini and Stefano Renzoni. Selected papers will be announced by January 15, 2014.Deadline 15 December 2013.
