Tico Seifert will curate the first comprehensive British exhibition of Rembrandt’s art, to be held at the Scottish National Gallery, June 2–September 16, 2018. This exhibition will encompass almost four hundred years of the collecting of Rembrandt’s art in Britain and its reception by British artists and writers. His research at the Center will focus on the British response to Rembrandt during the eighteenth century, examining rare sale catalogues to prints created after and in response to Rembrandt’s works and the recueils by Picart, Pond and Knapton, Worlidge, and Rogers.
Veronica Uribe’s project, entitled The Joseph and Ann Cox Brown Family Papers: Understanding British Travelling in the Nineteenth-Century from New Granada to Constantinople, will explore the role of drawing in the experience of British travelers during the first half of the nineteenth century. At the Center, she will focus on Britons who traveled in Turkey, examining British women travelers in the context of orientalism and the network of British artists in Constantinople.
