CFP: Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art, issue: Lessons in Art

This NKJ volume aims to investigate the relation between the visual arts (painting, drawing, applied arts, architecture, sculpture, photography) and education by employing a twofold approach: On the one hand it asks how the visual arts were taught: to whom (i.e. to experts, amateurs, women, children), why (skill, general development, entertainment, literacy, religious and/or scientific and medical education) and how (i.e. in classes, hands-on, through manuals, illustrations, models, photographs, radio, television)? On the other hand it investigates how the visual arts themselves were employed in education and through which processes and media they became effective. How were paintings, drawings, calligraphy, prints, models, photographs etc. used in scientific and professional training?
Relevant research areas: Western Europe, Baroque, 18th Century
