Con bella maniera
Festgabe für Peter Seiler zum 65. Geburtstag
Con bella maniera... under this motto the authors of the present volume pay tribute to the art historian Peter Seiler. Their contributions not only reflect the scholar's cross-genre and cross-epoch research interests and interdisciplinary approach, but also bear witness to friendships that have survived from all phases of his academic vita - from his student days in Heidelberg to his formative time as a fellow at the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome and his career at the art history institutes of Freie Universität and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin as research assistant, associate professor, head of the Census and adjunct professor. His bella maniera transcends the art historical terminus technicus and combines the „time-honoured learnable practices“ of art history with innovative research approaches and the delicate nature of human interaction.
