It is fair to assume that no art historian wants to be superficial in his or her approach to visual analysis and that we encourage our students to look closely and carefully, too. We take our time in contemplating a painting and inspect it in detail, and model this in our classes. Nevertheless, our eyes cannot penetrate the topmost paint layers and our glance cannot but skim the surface. Contemporary scientific methods allow us to peek beneath the surface of the painting. I would like to argue that a look beneath the surface of a painting offers a deeper insight into its materiality, and the specific technical and cultural context of its maker(s). This, in turn, lets us as historians, and our students as budding historians, experience art in a new and more profound and enjoyable ways. In this short post, I investigate the painted materiality of several works, focusing on the example of depiction of textile materials in some well-known renaissance and baroque paintings. Doing so allows our students to understand ideas like craft, skill, technology, and the process of in-depth visual analysis. Showing our students how Science and Art overlap and benefit from each other is an additional advantage of this approach. Titian, ‘ The Man with a Quilted Sleeve’ , ca 1510. The portrait of a member of the Venetian Barbarigo family is one of Titian’s early works. Conservators at the National Gallery London  describe the painting technique as follows. Ask your students what they notice about this work and the red robe is often an early response. It is obvious that Magdalen’s red robe executed in several layers of carmine and madder lakes is the dominant element of the painting. The depiction of the four white fabrics is the true sign of Titian’s mastery in handling color. Christ’s loincloth, his white cloak, Magdalen’s white sleeve, and her veil, are all painted in pure lead white. But every one of these textiles shows a distinctly different appearance . We can again try to analyze Titian’s technique to gain a deeper understanding of this painting. Christ’s loincloth is painted with a more fluid paint. Source: Art History Teaching Resources

Conversations with Caryl Phillips collects nineteen interviews conducted over more than two decades on both sides of the Atlantic and in the Caribbean. While Phillips (b. 1958) admittedly tends to hide behind his characters in his fiction, he is completely forthcoming in his interviews, where he describes in detail the personal experiences of migration and dislocation that inspired his writing. He shares ideas about his aesthetics, in particular his noted use of a fractured, polyphonic form. These exchanges demonstrate Phillips's knowledge about the contemporary world of politics and of writing while revealing his engaging humor, his sharp intelligence, and his deep commitment to the overarching aims of his work.
