Appel à contribution : Representing Islands and Water in Early Modern Cartography, RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 13 août 2021

The Mediterranean islands have occupied, at least since antiquity, a central position within the political and economic imperatives of numerous civilizations. These military powers will establish various forms of maritime control over the Mediterranean space. From the Minoans to the Genoese and Venetian Thalassocracies, as well as the Ottoman Empire, the Mediterranean Sea became the scene of countless battles for control of its islands and surrounding waters (even still today). When thought as a separate...

Proposals are invited for a session (or sessions) dedicated to Renaissance medals and exonumia to be held at the annual Renaissance Society of America meeting Dublin, 30 March-2 April 2022.

Appel à contribution : Dark Jokes and Laughing Artists: Early Modern Art and Humor, RSA, Dublin, date limite le 4 août 2021

This panel focuses on humor and art in the years 1450-1670. Humor relies on dialogue: born from the collision and unexpected juxtaposition of people or ideas. For art historians, the question of humour is thus a conundrum. With context obscured by historical distance, how exactly do we recover and understand a humorous tone? Such questions are especially pertinent for objects with darker subjects, where violence coexists alongside potential laughter. How does the ambiguity of humor...

Appel à contribution : Sacred Music, Ceremony and Architecture in Transcultural Perspectives, RSA, Dublin, date limite le 30 juillet 2021

Sacred sound, space and ceremony were intertwined in perceptions of the divine in the early modern world. We seek papers that explore aural and sonic dimensions of religious practices and architectural spaces, particularly proposals that engage with transcultural interactions. Multisensorial dimensions of religious settings (and their critiques) often come into sharper focus in the context of religious and political conflicts. While the sacred permeated societal and political structures of early modern communities, sacred settings were...

Appel à contribution : Michelangelo and Artistic Media: Multiplicity or Unity?, RSA, Dublin, date limite le 2 août 2021

Session organized by Angeliki Pollali (Deree-The American College of Greece) and Berthold Hub (University of Vienna) In Vasari’s Vite, Michelangelo is the only artist credited with the attributes of all three arti: Michelagnolo Buonarotti, pittore, scultore, et architetto. While Vasari presents the different artistic media as distinct, they were closely interrelated in the sixteenth century. Modern scholarship has treated the different media in Michelangelo’s work extensively, albeit separately, focusing initially on painting and sculpture, and...

Appel à contribution : The Medici Beyond Florence, Art and Politics, 1530-1648, Florence, 16-17 mars 2022, date limite le 30 septembre 2021

International conference Florence, 16-17 March 2022 Deadline: 30 September 2021 The conference focuses on the presence and circulation of Medicean cultural models within an Italian, European and global research framework, from the beginning of the ducal era (1530) to the end of the Thirty Years’ War (1648). After the creation of the Duchy, (anti-)Medicean interests can be traced out of Florence, as a result of the Duchy’s competition with other great European powers. Counselors, ambassadors,...

Appel à contribution : Aerial Perspective in Early Modern Europe, RSA, Dublin, du 30 mars au 2 avril 2022, date limite le 20 juillet 2021

The term aerial perspective is widely used but rarely studied outside the work of a few artists, such as Jan van Eyck, Leonardo da Vinci, and Poussin. Though most often associated with the representation of great distances, aerial perspective can also be said to involve strategies for differentiating shorter distances such as foreground and middle ground. Such strategies might include techniques such as schiacciato relief, engraving and etching, the study of optical treatises to better...

Parution : Cristina Acidini et Elena Gurrieri, Florence through Renaissance Eyes, Florence, Leo S. Olschki, 2021

This book is the ideal companion to discover the ancient heart of Florence through the eyes of an exceptional witness: Marco di Bartolomeo Rustici (1392/93-1457), goldsmith and humanist, author of an extraordinary Codex that takes his name. In the Codex, Rustici describes and depicts religious and secular elements of the historic center of Florence around 1450. At the time, the city’s medieval urban fabric was being enriched with grandiose Renaissance monuments designed by Filippo Brunelleschi...

Appel à contribution : Early-Modern Design: Processes and Practices, RSA, Dublin, du 30 mars au 2 avril 2022, date limite le 22 juillet 2021

Today, the notion of design is inextricably linked to modernist mass-production. Early-modern artists also received briefs for designing elegant yet functional objects to embellish the environment in which their patrons lived. These objects were the result of intense collaboration which called upon artistic ingenuity, sophisticated craftsmanship and technological advances. However, unlike modern design objects, early modern design creations were unique, exclusive, and competitive in their originality and invention. The case of Giulio Romano (c. 1492...
