  • 13.10.2019

This season, Maud Hagelstein, art philosopher and researcher at FNRS/ULiège, brings you on a journey through literature to search for stories about art. 

Pliny the Elder

In book 35 of his work “Natural History”, Pliny the Elder tells of the exploits of the great Greek painters, none of whose works have been preserved. Aside from his own stories. Pliny devised a narrative writing style that aims to capture the origin of great painting, the inventions, the first times, the happy accidents, the meaty, frightening, and always inspiring anecdotes for future painters. The entire book sketches the story of the mythological birth of art.
