Parution : Claudia Daniotti, « Reinventing Alexander. Myth, Legend, History in Renaissance Italian Art », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

In this book Claudia Daniotti provides the first comprehensive study of the representation of Alexander the Great in Renaissance Italian art, exploring a fundamental turning point in the tradition: the transition from the medieval imagery of Alexander as a legendary, fairy-tale hero to the new historically grounded portrait of him as an example of moral virtue and military prowess. During the Middle Ages, Alexander was turned into a fabled creature and fearless explorer, whose Flight...

Parution : Anne-Sophie Pellé, « Aemulatio Italorum. La réception culturelle des gravures de Mantegna dans l’art germanique au temps d’Albrecht Dürer », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

À la Renaissance, si le medium de la gravure permet désormais aux artistes de rivaliser entre eux à distance, dès la fin du xve siècle, la diffusion des modèles gravés par l’atelier du prestigieux peintre de cour des marquis de Mantoue, Andrea Mantegna, a suscité sur le territoire germanique une véritable émulation d’ordre culturelle, dans laquelle la question du rapport à l’identité occupe une place fondamentale. Dès lors, dans les images, deux paradigmes se dessinent :...

Appel à contribution : « Artists from the Low Countries in the Iberian World », Special issue, date limite le 15 février 2023

Artists, agents and patrons from the Low Countries in the Iberian World (1400-1714). Call for Papers for a Special Journal Issue. Traditionally, it is argued that from the 15th century onwards, Iberian art was transformed by the arrival of artists and art objects from the Low Countries. Numerous studies demonstrate the influence of great Flemish artists such as Jan Van Eyck, Michiel Coxcie, Peter Paul Rubens and Jacob Jordaens. However, the contribution of lesser-known artists,...

Parution : Maria Berbara, « Sacrifice and Conversion in the Early Modern Atlantic World », Harvard University Press, 2022

When Europeans came to the American continent in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, they were confronted with what they perceived as sacrificial practices. Representations of Tupinamba cannibals, Aztecs slicing human hearts out, and idolatrous Incas flooded the early modern European imagination. But there was no less horror within European borders; during the early modern period no region was left untouched by the disasters of war. Sacrifice and Conversion in the Early Modern Atlantic World illuminates a...

Parution : David Young Kim, « Groundwork: A History of the Renaissance Picture », Princeton University Press, 2022

The Italian Renaissance picture is renowned for its depiction of the human figure, from the dramatic foreshortening of the body to create depth to the subtle blending of tones and colors to achieve greater naturalism. Yet these techniques rely on a powerful compositional element that often goes overlooked. Groundwork provides the first in-depth examination of the complex relationship between figure and ground in Renaissance painting. “Ground” can refer to the preparation of a work’s surface, the fictive...

Parution : Ivana Čapeta Rakić, Giuseppe Capriotti, « Images in the Borderlands. The Mediterranean between Christian and Muslim Worlds in the Early Modern Period », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

This volume offers a unique exploration into the cultural history of the Mediterranean in the Early Modern Period by examining the region through the prism of Christian-Muslim encounters and conflicts and the way in which such relationships were represented in art works from the time. Taking images from the period as its starting point, this interdisciplinary work draws together contributors from fields as varied as cultural history, art history, archaeology, and the political sciences in...

Appel à communications : « La sculpture bourguignonne du XVe siècle », Dijon, 11-13 décembre 2023, date limite le 1er février 2023

Notre connaissance de la sculpture en France d’un long XVe siècle qui irait du gothique international à la première Renaissance se trouve dans une situation paradoxale. Elle a été enrichie de nombreuses études durant les dernières décennies, qui ont porté sur les artistes et les centres ou régions de production, sur les chantiers les plus significatifs, sur les commanditaires, sur certaines formes et sur certaines iconographies, sans oublier les matériaux et les techniques. Tous ces travaux ont souligné s’il en...

Journée d’étude : « L’animal à l’épreuve de l’histoire de l’art », Grenoble et en ligne, Université Grenoble Alpes, 21 octobre 2022

Les Études Animales, apparues dans les années 1970, se sont peu à peu imposées dans les sciences humaines, faisant de la question animale un sujet émergent. Cette remise en cause de l’anthropocentrisme, amorcée sur fond de catastrophe écologique, a eu plus de mal à atteindre l’histoire de l’art qui semble encore réticente à embrasser ce champ de recherche pourtant incontournable. Bien que la question de l’animalité dans l’art contemporain soit de plus en plus souvent...
