Clark Fellow Ivan Gerát presents “Image, Narrative, and Mentality: Recent Perspectives in Approaching Medieval Pictorial Legends.”
The role of narratives in creative artistic processes and their influence on the historical functions of images open many fascinating questions in art history and related disciplines. This lecture will present several case studies, illustrating the attempts to achieve a new theoretical understanding of pictorial legends in Liber depictus (Cod. Vind. 370), taking into account the cutting-edge methodological discussions as well as close reading of relevant historical sources.
