“Gothic Sculpture in Contexts New and Old: The Allentown Saint Sebastian and Art in Late Medieval Augsburg”

Abstract: Co-editor of Gothic Sculpture in America, vol. 3: The Museums of New York and Pennsylvania, Professor Holladay will discuss this multi-year project, the challenges it has presented, and the uses of such an inventory. She will then look in greater detail at one work, a meter-high wood figure attributed to Michel Erhart, an Augsburg sculptor active about 1500, to illustrate the kinds of discoveries that study of some of the inventoried works has produced. This figure of Saint Sebastian has much to tell us about the value and limits of traditional art historical methods, like connoisseurship, at the same time as it opens up newer questions about production processes, ongoing collaboration between artists specializing in different media, and patrons’ aesthetic preferences.

Lynn Tomlinson Interdisciplinary artist specializing in animation, mosaics, community art, sculpture, documentary, media art, and emerging media
