Charles de La Fosse et les arts en France autour de 1700

Colloque international – 18-19 mai 2015 – Salle des Colonnes, Grande Écurie du château de Versailles
Charles de La Fosse and the Arts in France around 1700. International conference, 18 and 19 May 2015, Salle des Colonnes, Grande Écurie du Château de Versailles

In parallel to the exhibition "Charles de la Fosse: The Triumph of Colour", the Musée National des Châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon and the Research Centre of the Château de Versailles organized an international conference focused on the artist.

The exhibition, divided into five main sections (commissions for royal houses; La Fosse as draughtsman; Academic tradition; the triumph of colour; and a precursor to the eighteenth century), was an opportunity to examine a major artist from the second half of Louis XIV’s reign.

The conference was able to better situate Charles de La Fosse (1636–1716) within the challenges facing artistic practice around 1700, the study of which has been profoundly advanced since the work of Antoine Schnapper.

While remaining centred on Charles de la Fosse’s oeuvre, at once deepening and extending the exhibition’s scope, the conference was structured around four main thematic sessions:

  • The art of Charles de La Fosse;

  • Charles de La Fosse and the grand décor;

  • Charles de La Fosse and mythology;

  • Charles de La Fosse and the artistic capitals.

Conference convenors: Béatrice Sarrazin (heritage curator in charge of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century paintings at the Musée National des Châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon) and Olivier Bonfait (Professor of Modern Art History, Centre Georges Chevrier – CNRS, University of Burgundy).

The complete conference programme is available on the CRCV website.

Thirteen of the fifteen papers presented at the conference are published here, edited by Béatrice Sarrazin and Olivier Bonfait.

Nine of the thirteen papers presented at the conference are published here, with two additional contributions and an introduction and conclusion written for this publication, edited by Béatrice Sarrazin and Olivier Bonfait.
