1. Konwitschny, Seollyeon. Alessandro Mauro: a venetian theatre and festival decorator of late Baroque (active ca. 1694-1736).

Degree: 2015, Freie Universität Berlin

My monographic work discusses the relevance of the rediscovery of – and the new appreciation for – Venetian theatre architect and festival designer Alessandro Mauro. His diverse scope of work in stage-, festival- and costume design, and the construction of magnificent gondolas, represents Late Baroque courtly festival culture and goes back to a centuries-old, family-run business in Venice. Mauro was stylistic one of the French master Jean Berain recipients in art history. He had a personal drawing style. His delicate brushstroke shows a loose, simple and naturalistic curve-style. His close-to-nature, light and picturesque representation of space characterizes Mauro’s design. However, he did not have his own, always same style. The originality of Mauro’s Œuvre lies in its mix of various trends. Mauro’s willingness and openness to merge his style with the styles of on-site artists during work assignments led to multiple commissions at the leading courts in Italy and Dresden. This, however, also let his work fall into oblivion soon after his death. This (certainly) made it difficult, both for his contemporary audience and for posterity, to clearly visualize Mauro’s work. Moreover, his extensive activities at the interface of art, theatre and music history were examined separately by Italian and German researchers. This makes it more difficult to get a concrete overview of Mauro’s Œuvre thus far. The author hopes to give an impulse for more intensive research efforts on Mauro in the future. Advisors/Committee Members: w (gender), Prof. Dr. Christiane Salge (firstReferee), Prof. Dr. Sebastian Fitzner (furtherReferee).
