Trompe-l’oeil seminar in Florence

Next January Accademia del Giglio will organize a Trompe-l’oeil seminar in Florence on the following date:

January 24th – 28th 2011

This conspicuous technique originates in the 15th century from the encounter of the Italian perspective with the Flemish realistic paintings. As the meaning of the French expression clearly tells (“trompe-l’oeil”), its explicit aim is to “deceive the eye” of the observer. The first unreal objects were actually painted on a wall and represented every-day-life things on a fictitious table or shelf. The trompe-l’oeil technique became more refined and elaborate later in the Baroque period, during which hunting trophies, perching birds, precious cabinets, game tables and several other sophisticated artistic objects were often painted for aristocratic families and rich merchants.

During this course students will be introduced to the study and analysis of the most celebrated artworks, by showing them the mastery and expertise in this technique of some famous painters. Afterwards each student will put into practice what he/she has learnt by creating his/her own trompe l’oeil work. Consequently, the students’ task will be challenging: they will have to take into account the natural size of the objects, make use of the perspective theories, consider the position of the observer towards the fictitious space, as well as create a tridimensional effect through the use of lights and shades.

Course code: TLO
Spoken languages: Italian and English.
Duration: 5 days
Total amount of hours: 30

Schedule: morning and afternoon, Monday through Friday.
Expiring date for enrollment: 4 weeks before the starting date.
Maximum number of students per class: 8.
