A closer look at how images codify emotions
How were European identities constructed in the early modern period? What sort of visual and narrative paradigms or patterns (in paintings and prints) were devised in Catholic and Iberian contexts between the 16th and 17th centuries? How were these used to advance key community ideals? The EU-funded COMCON project seeks to answer these questions. It will explore how iconographic themes and historical contexts express community values. It will examine patronage, cultural networks and social groups represented in the works of art. The findings will shed light on how images codify emotions. Specifically, COMCON will show how European imagery was selected and projected around the world to promote a particular idea of ‘emotional community’.
