‘On Paper’ conference at the Royal Academy of Arts


On 6 December, the Royal Academy of Arts in London hosted an international conference organised by the International Catalogue Raisonné Association which as a member we were honoured to attend.

The On Paper conference addressed the issue of the relationship between works of art made on paper or with paper and their classification in catalogues raisonné. Lectures and discussions, which included Annette Wickham, curator of the works on paper department at the Royal Academy of Arts, Yuval Etgar, independent author and art historian, director of research at Luxembourg + Co, and Adam Granelagh, curator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and author of the catalogue raisonné of works on paper by Mark Rothko, explored topics such as the characteristics of collections of works on paper, the specifics of their storage, methodologies for cataloguing them and the search for lost works and working with artists’ foundations that work to develop the artistic legacy of, for example, Louise Bourgeois.

The Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation’s participation in the event was made possible thanks to the support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
