January 2013 - International Conference

Here are several images relating to the forthcoming Conference, which opens on 25 January 2013, as sent to me by one of the organisers, Juliane Schmieglitz-Otten. The Conference is arranged by the Tansey Foundation and features a new exhibition of miniature portraits in the collection. It is the first time a new exhibition of items in the Tansey Collection has been accompanied by an International Conference and a number of experts in the field of miniature portraits are attending from around the world for what should be a very interesting series of lectures. The images below include a photo of Lieselotte and Ernest Tansey, the very generous sponsors of both the Conference and Exhibition.

As mentioned previously the conference is titled "European Portrait Miniatures" and will be held on 25-27 January 2013. The organizers are;
Bernd Pappe, Bern, Art Historian and Restorer
Juliane Schmieglitz-Otten, Celle, Head of the Residence Museum at Celle Castle
Gerrit Walczak, Berlin, Art Historian, Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin
For more information and for registration, please contact

Details of the conference location and the full timetable are available at EUROPEAN PORTRAIT MINIATURES It is clear from the timetable that there is an outstanding range of speakers. From the timetable it appears that the conference will be in English and attendance is free for both the conference and the exhibition. Hence those interested and able to travel to the conference, should include it in their itineraries.
