Abstract

In 1843, the Groningen classicist Petrus van Limburg Brouwer (father of P.A.S. van Limburg Brouwer, the author of the orientalist novel Akbar) published a candid translation of the autobiography of the Italian Renaissance artist Benvenuto Cellini; the translation does not shy away from references to homosexuality. A study of the applicability of concepts taken from queer studies and conceptual history studies of the nature of artistry and genius points towards a classicist concept of beauty with which Van Limburg Brouwer took a stand against the romantic concept of morality.
