Dear HNA Members:
There are numerous sessions at RSA focusing in one way or another on Netherlandish art. One such session is “Hermeneutics of Trompe-l’Oeil,” chaired by Anne Bloemacher, with papers by Walter Melion (“Trompe-l’Oeil Mirrors of the Soul in Jan David, SJ’s Duodecim specula (Twelve mirrors) of 1610”), Robert Fucci (“Vermeer Reconsidering Trompe-l’Oeil in Dresden’s Woman Reading a Letter”), and Yannis Hadjinicolaou (“Hoods and Lures: Cornelis Gijsbrechts’s (Falconry) Trompe-l’Oeil”).
The session takes place on Wednesday, 4:30-6:00 PM, at the Convention Centre-EcoCem Room (2nd floor) (click here for the online conference schedule). If you have organized a Netherlandish-themed session or are giving a paper, please send a brief message to the HNA Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org), listing your name, the session or paper title, and the day, place, and time, and we’ll post the information on the HNA website early next week.
