Parution : Antonin Liatard, « Le décor de la chapelle de la Sainte-Trinité au château de Fontainebleau. Historique et analyse du décor immeuble », Rennes, Presses universitaires, 2024

Rare exemple de chapelle royale ayant conservé son décor originel, la chapelle de la Trinité au château de Fontainebleau est l’unique témoin subsistant des embellissements commandés par Henri IV pour ses résidences. Achevé sous la régence de Marie de Médicis et le règne de Louis XIII, ce décor est essentiel pour comprendre l’évolution des arts en France entre la fin du XVIe siècle et le milieu du XVIIe siècle. Comment le décor d’une chapelle royale donne-t-il à voir...

Parution : Philippe Canguilhem, « À l’ombre du laurier. Musique et culture à Florence 1530-1570 », Turnhout, Brepols, 2024

Fruit de plus de quinze années de recherches dans les bibliothèques et archives de Florence, ce livre souhaite mettre en évidence le rôle de la musique dans le dispositif culturel mis en place par les premiers ducs de Florence, Alessandro et Cosimo I, depuis la chute de la dernière République jusqu’à l’obtention par Cosimo du titre de grand-duc de Toscane par le pape Pie V. Ces quatre décennies, marquées par des bouleversements politiques, sociaux et...

Parution : Danièle Cohn et Rémi Mermet (éd.), “Principes fondamentaux de l’histoire de l’art de Heinrich Wölfflin”, Paris, L’écarquillé, 2023

Nous qui voyons trop, nous avons besoin d’apprendre à voir le visible. En s’efforçant d’appréhender la vision que les peintres construisent et reconstruisent à chaque époque dans l’espace de leurs tableaux, les Principes fondamentaux de l’histoire de l’art nous proposent un précieux exercice du regard. L’essai de Heinrich Wölfflin, paru en 1915 et devenu une simple référence historiographique, avait perdu de son acuité. Les questions qu’il soulève, leur résonance aujourd’hui avaient besoin d’une traduction nouvelle...

Parution : Elvira Bojilova, “Die verlorene Spur Ästhetische Reflexionen zur Schraffur in der Vormoderne”, Berlin, De Gruyter, 2023

This publication is devoted to a hitherto little examined aspect of hand drawing and printmaking: How was hatching reflected upon in the period between c. 1500 and 1700? Central aspects of the artistic technique are examined on the basis of five case studies. The perspective extends beyond European national borders and seeks answers to this question. Methodologically, approaches of discourse history and reception aesthetics are combined. The promising source situation discloses a treasure trove of...

Parution : Keith Botelho and Joseph Campana (dir.), “Lesser Living Creatures of the Renaissance”, University Park, Penn State University Press, 2023

Lesser Living Creatures examines literary and cultural texts from early modern England in order to understand how people in that era thought about—and with—insect and arachnid life. The conversations in this two-volume set address the collaborative, multigenerational research that produced early modern natural history and provide new insights into the old question of what it means to be human in a world populated by beasts large and small. Volume 1, Insects, examines how insects burrowed into the...

Parution : Lollobrigida et Modesti (dir.), “Women in Arts, Architecture and Literature: Heritage, Legacy and Digital Perspectives”, Turnhout, Brepols, 2023

In the last few decades, the study of women in the arts has largely increased in terms of scholars involved in research and investigation, with the reception of the outcomes especially acknowledged by museums which are dedicating part of their mission to organizing exhibitions and/or acquiring the works of women. The Annual International Women in Arts Conference seeks to advance contemporary discussions on how female creativity has helped shape European culture in its heterogeneity since the Middle...

Parution : Alice S. Legé, “La villa Altoviti ai Prati di Castello. Eclissi di un paesaggio fluviale”, Rome, Officina Libraria, 2024

Nel 1524 il banchiere fiorentino Bindo Altoviti acquista per sé e per i suoi «heredi una vigna posta drieto a Castel Santo Agnolo», presso un’ansa del Tevere che si affaccia strategicamente verso il porto di Ripetta. Circondato da vigneti, canneti e orti, il casino nobile e il suo giardino si incardinano in una struttura composita, nobilitata da una loggia affrescata da Giorgio Vasari nel 1553. Mai completamente indagata dalla critica, villa Altoviti fu gravemente danneggiata...

Parution : Jérémie Koering, « Iconophages: A History of Ingesting Images », Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2024

Eating and drinking images may seem like an anomalous notion but, since antiquity, in the European and Mediterranean worlds, people have swallowed down frescoes, icons, engravings, eucharistic hosts stamped with images, heraldic wafers, marzipan figures, and other sculpted dishes. Either specifically made for human consumption or diverted from their original purpose so as to be ingested, these figured artifacts have been not only gazed upon but also incorporated—taken into the body—as solids or liquids. How...

Parution : Michel Weemans, Stijn Bussels, Karl Enenkel et Elliott D. Wise, “Imago and Contemplatio in the Visual Arts and Literature (1400-1700)”, Leyde, Brill, 2024

This volume contains twenty-four essays, which, in their subjects and methodology, pay tribute to the scholarship of Walter S. Melion. The contributions are grouped under three categories: “Devotion”, “Art and Image Theory”, and “Vision and Contemplation”. The Devotion section addresses votive practices, theological theory and polemic literature. The Art and Image Theory section focuses on Jesuit image theory, the reflexive dimension of works, and artists’ reflections on the function of images. Finally, the Vision and...

Parution : Elizabeth L’Estrange, “Anne de Graville and Women’s Literary Networks in Early Modern France”, Martlesham, Boydell & Brewer, 2023

First detailed reconstruction of Anne de Graville’s library, establishing her as one of the most well-read and erudite poets of the period. In the 1520s, the French noblewoman Anne de Graville composed two poetic works, based on older, canonical, male-authored texts: Giovanni Boccaccio’s Teseida and Alain Chartier’s Belle dame sans mercy. The first, the Beau roman, she offered to Claude, queen of France and wife of Francis I, and the second, the Rondeaux, to the king’s mother, Louise of Savoy....
