Description

Crossing the Hanseatic Threshold and Beyond: Making Connections in Medieval Art, c. 1200-1500

The Hanse, also known as the Hanseatic League, was a trade network of merchants and cities across the Northern and Baltic Seas that flourished in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Due to its geographic reach, the Hanse provided a framework to connect distant towns, peoples, cultures, ideas, and materials together. This session aims to explore the often-overlooked artistic production in the transnational Hanseatic region. Artistic exchange across Hanse trade routes was extensive and wide reaching. Art objects traveled long distances and were produced with great variety to reflect the multi-faceted identities and goals of their patrons.

Papers will address artistic circulation, mobility, exchange, networks, identity, media, and/or patronage in the Hanseatic arena. Larger questions on ‘Hanseatic art’, Hanse art historical historiography, and the self-fashioning of Hanse merchants or patrons will also be interrogated. More generally, papers will explore art and mercantile trade in littoral and riverine towns in Europe, c. 1200-1500.

This session is sponsored by the Student Committee of the International Center of Medieval Art. The ICMA Student Committee involves and advocates for all members with student status. As a committee that addresses the concerns of students, we see this session as a forum for discussion and informal mentorship within our field.
