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 : Daniel M. Unger, « Titian’s Allegory of Marriage. New Approaches », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book offers nine new approaches toward a single work of art, Titian’s Allegory of Marriage or Allegory of Alfonso d’Avalos, dated to 1530/5. In earlier references, the painting was named simply Allegory, alluding to its enigmatic nature. The work follows in a tradition of such ambiguous Venetian paintings as Giovanni Bellini’s Sacred Allegory and Giorgione’s Tempest. Throughout the years, Titian’s Allegory has engendered a range of diverse interpretations. Art historians such as Hans Tietze,...

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.

Exposition : « Diableries ! », Namur, Musée provincial des arts anciens, du 28 mai au 28 août 2022

Organisée dans le cadre du projet The Circus we are, mené conjointement avec le Musée Félicien Rops et le Delta, l’exposition Diableries propose une immersion dans l’univers captivant du Diable, figure emblématique de notre imaginaire collectif. Tantôt créature hideuse et terrifiante, tantôt tentateur séduisant et envoûtant, ce dernier effraie autant qu’il fascine depuis des siècles. Usant de ruses et finesses dans le but de corrompre les esprits et de les soumettre à la tentation, cet être énigmatique représente une menace permanente pour le Salut...
