Genius Before Romanticism: Ingenuity in Early Modern Art and Science
What existed in the European imagination before the Romantic concept of ‘genius’?
This five-year ERC-funded research project, led by Dr Alexander Marr, TH Fellow and Department of History of Art, will examine notions of unique talent, heightened imagination and extraordinary creativity in art and science by exploring the language, theories, practices and products of ingenium (ingenuity) ca 1450-ca 1750.
