Paul-mellon-centre.ac.ukThe Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art Yale University June 2011 Issue 32 Landscape and the ‘arts of prospect' in Early Modern Britain 18 November 2011 at the Paul Mellon CentreRecent years have seen a major re-evaluation of British artand culture of the early modern period. Much of this workhas focused on the representation of the national territory,in word and image, in plays and poems, illustrated surveysand travel accounts. Historians have addressed how thesecultural practices responded to dramatic and sometimesviolently contested change in the national landscapewrought by agricultural and commercial improvementas well as civil wars and religious strife, fire and plague.
Yet, accounts of the specifically pictorial treatment oflandscape in this period remain oddly divorced from theseconcerns, in large part because it is treated in isolation fromother ‘arts of prospect'. This conference will explore the origins of British landscape as a pictorial genre, addressing developments inthe two centuries that followed Henry VIII's dissolution ofthe monasteries. It aims to re-examine landscape imageryin drawings, paintings and prints of the period, byexploring its relationship with other ‘arts of prospect'employed to observe, record and moreover evaluate thecountry's transformations. Prospects assumed variousforms, visual and verbal, and included maps, plans andelevations, as well as views and verse, pageantry andtheatrical scenery, the collaborations of artists, architectsand surveyors, patrons, poets and place-makers. A prospectwas a far-reaching vision of the future as well as a surveyof the present, if also oftentimes reflecting on the pasts thathad shaped the national territory. Accordingly, a central Jan Siberechts (1627–1703), Wollaton Hall, c. 1697. theme of the conference will be to consider the relationship Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Collection between landscape imagery and the making, unmaking andremaking of Britain as a nation state.

To be held on 14 May 2012 at the Royal Academy of Arts and the Geological Society, London The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, theYale Center for British Art, New Haven and the RoyalAcademy of Arts, London will be co-hosting a conferenceon Monday 14 May 2012 to accompany a major exhibitionon the eighteenth-century Anglo-German artist JohanZoffany (1733–1810). The exhibition, Johan Zoffany RA:Society Observed, is curated by Martin Postle (Paul MellonCentre) with Gillian Forrester (Yale Center for BritishArt) and MaryAnne Stevens (Royal Academy), and willbe on display at the Yale Center for British Art from 27 October 2011 to 12 February 2012, and at the RoyalAcademy of Arts from 10 March to 10 June 2012.
Born in Frankfurt in 1733, Johan Zoffany trained as an artist in Germany and Italy. In 1760 he moved toLondon, where he adapted brilliantly to the indigenousart culture and patterns of patronage, creating virtuosoportraits and subject pictures that proved to be highlydesirable to a wide range of patrons. Of all the majorartists working in eighteenth-century England, noneexplored more inventively the complexities of Georgiansociety and British imperial rule than Zoffany. Yet,despite achieving considerable success there, he remainedin many ways an outsider, looking dispassionately atBritish society. Resisting complete integration into hisadopted country, Zoffany travelled for extended periodsin Europe and spent six years in northern India. His bodyof work offers unique perspectives on key British andEuropean institutions, including the art academy, theroyal court, the theatre, and the families of thearistocracy and bourgeoisie. In India, Zoffanyconstructed new idioms for portraying the emergingcolonial society in both public and private spheres, as well Johan Zoffany (1733–1810) The Tribuna of the Uffizi (detail), c.1772–77.

As court both the rise of the visual arts in Britain and the expansion designer to the Stuart kings James I and Charles I, he is of the nation's imperial power. It argues that maritime credited with introducing the classical language of imagery was central to cultivating a sense of nationhood architecture to the country.
