Appel à communication : « Revisiting Collecting Antiquities », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 6 août 2021

The significance of owning and displaying antiquities for the Renaissance collector has never been doubted and the importance of surviving antique works of art for both collectors and artists is well understood. Recent research has shown that the meaning of these works for collectors, that underpinned their acquisition and display, is more nuanced than previously thought, often reflecting market forces as much as the reputation or scholarship of the individual owner. In light of the...

Appel à communication : « Facciati Dipinti e Parlante: New Investigations of the Frescoed Façade in Italy », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 1er août 2021

Though its remains are vanishing rapidly, the frescoed façade tradition of the Italian peninsula has enjoyed a recent resurgence in interest among scholars for the variety and ingenuity these painted faces revealed. From desires to root structures in antiquity to simply dressing one’s dwelling to make a humble space more imposing or on trend, these facades tell their own stories of artistic innovation, symbolic meaning, and visual presence among the bustling streets of many Italian...

Appel à communication : « Women Artists in Venice », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 30 juillet 2021

Appel à communication : « Framing the multimodality of early modern images : agency, performance and medialogy to study artefacts », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 27 juillet 2021

Understanding paintings and sculptures as a « dispositif » (De Certeau, Agamben) has become a new research approach in the Humanities in recent years. Visual anthropology  and cognition are nowadays commonly used to explore how early modern images work within a process of production, mediation and reception (Freedberg & Gallese ; Belting). However, Visual semiology, Information and Communication Sciences are yet to be invested in a fruitful medialogy that could provide a bridge between disciplines. Studying interpersonal and...

Parution : Nicola Suthor, « Bravura: Virtuosity and Ambition in Early Modern European Painting », Princeton University Press, 2021

The painterly style known as bravura emerged in sixteenth-century Venice and spread throughout Europe during the seventeenth century. While earlier artistic movements presented a polished image of the artist by downplaying the creative process, bravura celebrated a painter’s distinct materials, virtuosic execution, and theatrical showmanship. This resulted in the further development of innovative techniques and a popular understanding of the artist as a weapon-wielding acrobat, impetuous wunderkind, and daring rebel. In Bravura, Nicola Suthor offers...

Appel à contribution : « Parcours de princesses, un nouveau regard sur les alliances dynastiques (Europe de l’Ouest, XVe-XVIIe siècle) », date limite le 10 juillet 2021

En 1992, Louise Olga FRADENBURG invitait à repenser la souveraineté féminine (« rethinking queenship ») en termes de genre. Son ouvrage (4) marque le début d’un renouvellement historiographique majeur. Rapidement, des chercheur·se·s anglo- saxon·e·s ont réagi en proposant de nombreuses publications mobilisant la notion de queenship. En France, les premiers travaux ont vu le jour dans les années 2000, notamment avec l’étude pionnière de Fanny COSANDEY sur la reine de France (2). Puis la question...

Appel à communication : « Art and Adversity: Patrons, Masters and Works of Art », date limite le 15 juillet 2021

Grave adversities, like natural disasters, infectious diseases, earthquakes, conflagrations and floods, as well as minor ones, more personal, like death or illness of a family member, that afflicted large and small communities in the same measure, urban and political centres as well as their periphery during the early modern age, were important incentive for commissioning works of art. Such commissions, whether made by individuals or various social groups such as religious orders, confraternities or the...
