Preparatory drawing, proof print & counterproof – the artist’s graphic material, 3rd Swiss congress for Art History

This panel will focus on the ambivalent status of the graphic material, that is on the one hand used by the artist in order to produce another work of art, but on the other hand that is esteemed by the collectors as a work of art on its own and that is praised for its rarity and for its possibility to discover the artist's working process.

Proposals for a 20-minute paper can range from the creation of this material by the artist to its value on the art market or in the collections.

Submissions are accepted in German, French, English and Italian.

No geographical nor temporal limits are imposed. Young scholars are especially encouraged to send proposals.

If you're interested, please send an abstract of max 3'000 signs to and to
