Conférence en ligne : Paul Taylor et François Quiviger, Salvator Rosa: Paint and Performance, Warburg Institute, 25 mai 2023

Painter, poet and actor Salvator Rosa was one of the most engaging and charismatic personalities of seventeenth-century Italy. Although a gifted landscape painter, he longed to be seen as the pre-eminent philosopher-painter of his age. This new account traces Rosa’s strategies of self-promotion, and his creation of a new kind of audience for his art. The book describes the startling novelty of his subject-matter – witchcraft and divination, as well as prophecies, natural magic and dark violence – and his early exploration of a nascent aesthetic of the sublime.

Salvator Rosa shows how the artist, in a series of remarkable works, responded to new movements in thought and feeling, creating images that spoke to the deepest concerns of his age.

Renaissance Lives is a series of biographies published by Reaktion Books(Opens in new window) as well as a series of conversations discussing the ways in which individuals transmitted or changed the lives of traditions, ideas and images.
