Workshop 3 (March 2008)
Foreign Artists working in England in the early Sixteenth century

The workshop looked at the following research questions:

What interchanges took place between English and Foreign artists?

How distinct are the material practises of Anglo-Netherlandish artists?

What does the identification of under drawing tell us about artistic practise?

How helpful are national categories and when do 'émigré' artists become 'English'?

To what extent do foreign artists help direct taste in England?
