Appel à communication : Lost Works of Art in Print, Dublin, RSA 2021, 4 juin 2021, date limite le 24 juillet 2020

Panel sponsored by the Association of Print Scholars. Organizers: Claudia Echinger-Maurach/Anne Bloemacher, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster Considering the comprehensive literature on works of art lost during World War II, the absence of scholarship on lost paintings, sculptures and architecture from the Renaissance with special regard to their “preservation” in print is astounding. Prints play a significant role for our knowledge of lost art, yet all too often prints have been used as mere “documents” of such...

Appel à communication : « Painted Faces: Documenting the Frescoed Façade in Renaissance Rome and Beyond », Dublin, RSA 2021, date limite le 13 juillet 2020

In early sixteenth-century Rome, as the architectural language of grand domestic spaces was being further refined, elaborate façade fresco decorations became popular. These cycles, some of which were designed to root the structure (and its owner) in Roman antiquity and others which aimed to make a humble space more imposing, were celebrated in their day and even documented (albeit sporadically) by artists. This session welcomes papers that explore frescoed facades in Rome and beyond from...

Renaissance Society of America Annual Meeting Dublin, 7-10 April 2021 Through history and times, architecture has always been used to express cultural messages and a social status. Since the Late Middle Ages and then throughout the whole Renaissance, the rising and developing system of Italian cities took extensive advantage from the evocative symbols of classical and Christian tradition, and borrowed elements from the past to create “emotional” architectures. Thus, by constructing new buildings and urban...

Les penseurs humanistes, en proposant une définition neuve de l’éducation, bouleversent la conception que les sociétés occidentales ont de l’enfance. Nous plongeons aujourd’hui dans la vie de ces enfants de l’âge moderne. Nos ancêtres aimaient-ils leurs enfants ? Les historiens et les historiennes se penchent sur la question depuis des décennies. En réalité, l’interrogation serait plutôt : comment nos ancêtres aimaient- ils leurs enfants ? Le questionnement peut être étendu à la manière dont étaient vus les bambins :...

S’approprier la Grèce antique en France et en Italie aux XIVe et XVe siècles Aux XIVe et XVe siècles, la Grèce suscite en Italie et en France un engouement nouveau, dans une tension entre admiration et méfiance face à l’altérité mal connue et mal perçue tant de son univers ancien que de son devenir byzantin. Se multiplient les œuvres en latin, en français et en italien qui évoquent le passé de la Grèce ancienne. Les...
