Conférence : Diane Bodart, « In the Mirror of Armor », en ligne, 7 avril 2021

In the early fifteenth century, while new treatments of steel surfaces elaborated in Northern Italy made armor as shiny and reflective as a mirror, the refinement of glazes reached by oil painting in the Low-Countries allowed the representation of such optical effects. At the encounter between these two new technologies, the pictorial detail of the reflection became the site for experimentation with its transformative potentialities. Reflections on armor, like those on mirrors, may operate a...

Conférence en ligne : Stephen J. Campbell, Renaissance Italian Art after the Spatial Turn, Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, le 6 avril 2021, de 17h à 19h

In the wake of History of art‘s « spatial turn », the historiography of pre-modern Italy has seemed more peripheral than central. To what extent have conversations about art as instrument of a colonizing process, as a conduit for cultural exchange, of translation and adaptation by colonial subjects, métissage, transfert culturel, and so on transformed the way we might conceive the artistic geography of Italy in the era before and after Vasari’s history of art imposed a...

Colloque en ligne : Reconsidering Raphael, 9-10 avril 2021

Registration deadline: Apr 8, 2021 April 6, 2020 marked the quincentenary of the death of Raffaello Sanzio (1483-1520), one of the most brilliant and consequential artists in the western tradition. Praised during his lifetime as “Prince of Painters” (pictorum princeps), a description rendered indelible by Giorgio Vasari, this characterization long served to obscure Raphael’s artistic achievements in other modes. He was in reality an impresario in many media: revered in his own day as Rome’s...

Conférence en ligne : Rebekah Compton, A Space for the Soul: Fra Angelico’s Last Judgment for Santa Maria degli Angeli, Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, 23 mars 2021 de 11h à 13h

In his Last Judgment for S. M. degli Angeli, Fra Angelico visualizes the mystical places and colors of the soul, imagery that relates to the Christian Platonism of the Cappadocian Fathers, whose works were read and translated by Ambrogio Traversari. In the 1420s, Fra Angelico painted a mystical Last Judgment for Santa Maria degli Angeli, the urban monastery of the Camaldolese Order. Using advanced spatial and lighting techniques, Fra Angelico created spaces for the beholder’s imagined soul: a heavenly...

Conférence : Temenuzhka Dimova, « Sémiologie de la main dans la peinture moderne : comment interpréter chaque signe gestuel et ses variations », en ligne, le 25 mars à 19h

En langue des signes picturale, serrer ses deux mains avec les doigts entremêlés exprime le chagrin ; croiser ses mains sur la poitrine désigne la ferveur dévotionnelle; plier l’auriculaire évoque le nombre « un » ; mettre la main sur la cuisse d’autrui exprime le serment d’allégeance ; joindre le pouce et l’index démontre la finesse de l’éloquence, alors que l’acte de se moucher permet de conjurer le diable. Le répertoire des gestes employés par...

Séminaire en ligne : Stargates – The Magic of Images from Heka to the Monas Hieroglyphica, Londres, The Warburg Institute

Stargates – The Magic of Images from Heka to the Monas Hieroglyphica is a lecture series dedicated to the material aspects of making magical images, including the arsenal of objects and media which allow the maker to manipulate the flow of stellar influences. The roots of the question are Egyptian; they lie buried in a passage of the hermetic text, Asclepius, which explains how Egyptian priests “make gods” by shaping images able to attract the souls of the stars....
