Conférence : Daniela Bleichmar, « The Cabinet and the World. Non-European Objects in Early Modern European Wunderkammern », en ligne, 4 février 2021

Early modern European collectors proclaimed their curiosity cabinets contained « the world. » What do collections from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries reveal about the ways in which those who assembled, owned, and visited them understood objects from other regions and cultures? Inventories, catalogues, and descriptions of European collections from the period reveal that the reception of non-European objects was characterized above all by practices of geographical and cultural indeterminacy, most notably (1) empty attribution, (2) misattribution,...

Conférence : Urte Krass, « The Big Empty. A New Interpretation of Velazquez’s So-Called La Mulata », en ligne, 29 janvier 2021

Velázquez’s painting featuring a black kitchen maid standing among pots, plates, and pitchers is famously infused with ambiguity. The figure and her surroundings, which include an image-in-the-image of the Supper at Emmaus, visually and thematically interweave with one another in multiple ways that set up a series of subtle and elusive pictorial dialogues. The bodegón curiously appears to turn the Emmaus scene inside-out, emptying the biblical table in a contemporary setting. This paper interrogates these...

Tantôt vous les voirrez à courbettes danser, Tantost se reculer, s’approcher, s’avancer, S’escarter, s’esloigner, se serrer, se rejoindre D’une pointe allongée, et tantôt d’une moindre, Contrefaisant la guerre au semblant d’une paix, Croisez, entrelacez de droit et de biais, Tantost en forme ronde, et tantost en carrée, Ainsi qu’un Labyrinth, dont la trace esgarée Nous abuse les pas en ses divers chemins, Ainsi qu’on voit danser en la mer les Dauphins, Ainsi qu’on voit voler...

Parution : Stephen Perkinson et Noa Turel (dir.), Picturing Death 1200–1600, Leyde, Brill, 2020

Picturing Death: 1200–1600 explores the visual culture of mortality over the course of four centuries that witnessed a remarkable flourishing of imagery focused on the themes of death, dying, and the afterlife. In doing so, this volume sheds light on issues that unite two periods—the Middle Ages and the Renaissance—that are often understood as diametrically opposed. The studies collected here cover a broad visual terrain, from tomb sculpture to painted altarpieces, from manuscripts to printed books,...

Parution : Myriam Marrache-Gouraud, « La Légende des objets. Le cabinet de curiosités réfléchi par son catalogue (Europe, XVIe-XVIIe siècles) », Paris, Droz, 2020

C’est par l’intermédiaire de leur catalogue que les premiers cabinets de curiosités se sont fait connaître dans toute l’Europe. Pris entre le bruit du monde et les grandes orgues de la « littérature », ces livres sont pourtant méconnus, délaissés par la critique. Or, leurs mots, leur langue, leurs stratégies éditoriales, rien n’est indifférent aux auteurs conscients des enjeux d’une production qui passe les frontières génériques. Écrits pour le lecteur affamé de narrations épiques comme pour l’érudit...

Exposition : « Sensing the Unseen. Step into Gossaert’s ‘Adoration’ », Londres, National Gallery, 20 décembre 2020-28 février 2021

Take your first step into Jan Gossaert’s world of intricate detail, technical mastery and rich meaning in a new Gallery experience where you’ll be surrounded by the sights and sounds of his 500-year-old masterpiece. In ‘The Adoration of the Kings’, Gossaert has compressed time and space into a richly detailed, imagined setting where some elements of this familiar Christian scene are immediately clear and others are hidden for us to discover: the weave of fabric, Gossaert’s fingerprint in the green glaze where he blotted it with his hand, thistles and dead nettles, hairs sprouting from a wart on a cheek, a tiny pearl, a hidden angel… To help you uncover...
