"Cartographers, craftsmen and artists (...)" a talk by Sima Krtalic at Bodleian Library
Sima Krtalic will give a talk online entitled "Cartographers, craftsmen and artists: collaboration and cross-pollination in the creation of nautical charts", Thursday December 1st, at the Bodleian Library, at 16.30 (Lisbon time). Free to attend but booking is required.
In this talk, Šima Krtalić will approach manuscript nautical cartography from the angle of artisanal practices, exploring the methods used by chart makers to produce exquisitely intricate depictions of the marine space. The origins of key techniques in chart making will be discussed, as well as the occasionally contentious relationships between cartographers and miniaturists working together to produce luxury atlases.
