Dissertation Project

Working title: "Classical Tudors. A History of Objects Pertaining to the Antiquity"

The antiquity and the Tudors were intimately acquainted. By the 16th century most of the classical texts were known to them and read by their elite. Yet with a few exceptions, principally in Rome, most of the sculpture and architecture had not been excavated. Systematic archaeological excavations, however, only began in the late 18th century onwards.

Most of the art that mimicked their ancient idols was therefore not based on a visual but literal depiction. The aim of my thesis will be to identify both the role models as well as how many different spheres were influenced and based on an appreciation for the classical world. In case that the objects are lost I will rely on as many descriptions and similar objects as possible.

To clarify, contrarily to my previous writings, when I speak of Tudors I do not solely refer to an specific monarch but to the whole elite and craftsmanship ranging from 1485 to 1603.

England is the focal point. However, considering both Tudor properties held in other countries along with diplomatic, marital, and cultural ties, and other influences will also be mentioned.
