My pick of the week is the Paul Mellon Centre’s new online resource, A Catalogue Raisonné of Francis Towne (1739-1816), by Richard Stephens. The site includes a full catalogue of Towne’s known works, accompanied by discursive essays on his outputs. The Catalogue is particularly important for highlighting (and providing access to) a significant body of work by a lesser-known artist, and I’ve no doubt that it will become a crucial resource for scholars of eighteenth-century art and culture.
Other CFPs, conferences, fellowships and courses that caught my eye this week included:
