Exposition : “Rhinoceros – a fabulous animal works on paper from three centuries”, Nuremberg, Germanisches Nationalmuseum, du 21 juillet 2022 au 26 juillet 2023

The studio exhibition presents images of the rhinoceros on paper from three centuries. This period saw the transformation from a creature of the imagination to a realistically-depicted animal. In 1500, almost no-one in Europe had ever actually seen a rhinoceros, and the legendary creature was associated with myth and many stories. It was considered wild, dangerous and the elephant’s natural enemy, but also exotically fascinating, testimony to an unknown world. Two images, in particular, were...

Parution : Tobias Frese, “Bilder der Christophanie : Ambiguität, Liminalität und Konversion”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

    Frühmittelalterliche Bilder der Christophanie irritieren den Betrachter oftmals durch widersprüchliche Aussagen. Das Buch analysiert prominente Fallbeispiele in neuen Perspektiven. Doppeldeutigkeiten in der mittelalterlichen Kunst wurden von der kunsthistorischen Forschung lange Zeit unterschätzt oder gänzlich ignoriert. Dies resultierte aus dem traditionellen Anliegen der ikonographischen Interpretationspraxis, christliche Bildinhalte möglichst eindeutig zu bestimmen. Motivische Widersprüchlichkeiten wurden zumeist als Ausnahmen disqualifiziert, auf pragmatische Gründe zurückgeführt oder als künstlerische Fehler abgetan. Im Buch wird anhand mehrerer Fallbeispiele dargelegt,...

Parution : Margaret D. Carroll, “Hieronymus Bosch Time and Transformation in The Garden of Earthly Delights”, New Haven, Yale University Press, 2022

A new and exciting interpretation of Bosch’s masterpiece, repositioning the triptych as a history of humanity and the natural world Hieronymus Bosch’s (c. 1450–1516) Garden of Earthly Delights has elicited a sense of wonder for centuries. Over ten feet long and seven feet tall, it demands that we step back to take it in, while its surface, intricately covered with fantastical creatures in dazzling detail, draws us closer. In this highly original reassessment, Margaret D. Carroll reads...

Exposition : “Hans Hoffmann. A European artist of the Renaissance”, Nuremberg, German National Museum, du 12 mai au 8 août 2022

  Nuremberg citizen and European artist: Hans Hoffmann (ca. 1545/50 – 1591/92) is considered one of the leading lights of the “Duerer Renaissance”. His artistic reputation is based on his numerous copies of works by the old master. Imitation was not a practice he alone specialised in, however; rather, it was part of a European art phenomenon which reached its peak in around 1600. In comparing the work of Hoffmann with that of Duerer and...

Parution : Francesco Caglioti (ed), “Donatello: The Renaissance”, Venise, Marsilio, 2022

  A beautiful appraisal of the Renaissance sculptor’s achievements, contextualized with works by his contemporaries. The first thorough overview of the artist in many years, Donatello: The Renaissance reconstructs the outstanding career of one of the greatest sculptors in Western art. Famed for his incredibly sensual sculpture of David—the first freestanding nude male sculpture since antiquity—Donatello (c. 1386–1466) also made reliefs, but was best known for statues in the round. Accompanying a truly historic exhibition...

Parution : Abigail D. Newman, “Painting Flanders Abroad : Flemish Art and Artists in Seventeenth-Century Madrid”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

  In Painting Flanders Abroad: Flemish Art and Artists in Seventeenth-Century Madrid, Flemish immigrants and imported Flemish paintings cross the paths of Spanish kings, collectors, dealers, and artists in the Spanish court city, transforming the development and nature of seventeenth-century Spanish painting. Examining these Flemish transplants and the traces their interactions left in archival documents, collection inventories, art treatises, and most saliently Spanish “Golden Age” paintings, this book portrays Spanish society grappling with a long...

Parution : Inge Reist, “When Michelangelo Was Modern”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

Through case studies of collectors, patrons, and agents who redefined collecting and the art market, this volume illuminates how the changing status of the artist, rise of connoisseurship, role of intermediaries and new patterns of consumption established models for collecting and display that resemble those still practiced today. The book presents new research by recognized scholars who examine the motivations of collectors and agents, emphasizing how their collecting, patronage and advocacy could require support of...
