The conference Art and Science in the Early Modern Low Countries wants to contribute to the dialogue between experts in the history of art, historians of science, and all those interested in the visual and material culture of the sixteenth and seventeenth-century Netherlands.

Although the emphasis of the conference will be on the Low Countries, both the South and the North, several contributions also include developments elsewhere in Europe. This way, it aims at offering a broad overview of the way in which art and science came together in the early modern Low Countries.

Keynote speakers

  • Pamela H. Smith, Columbia University, New York
  • Alexander Marr, University of Cambridge
