Robert Wellington will be attending the Renaissance Society of America’s annual meeting in Berlin next March to participate in an exciting panel Delimiting the Global in Renaissance and Early Modern Art History. His paper, Louis XIV’s Cabinet du Roi: Questioning the transcultural reception of early-modern prints, will be the first time Robert presents his latest research into the role of prints as ambassadorial gifts from the Court of Louis XIV at an international forum.
 
For more on the conference see the Renaissance Society of America website.
