Parution : Christopher P. Heuer, « Into the White: The Renaissance Arctic and the End of the Image », Londres, Zone Books, 2019

European narratives of the Atlantic New World tell stories of people and things: strange flora, wondrous animals, and sun-drenched populations for Europeans to mythologize or exploit. Yet between 1500 and 1700 one region upended all of these conventions in travel writing, science, and, most unexpectedly, art: the Arctic. Icy, unpopulated, visually and temporally “abstract”, the far North – a different kind of terra incognita for the Renaissance imagination – offered more than new stuff to...

Dans la sphère académique, l’histoire de l’art traverse une crise d’identité qui gagne peu à peu le monde muséal. À force d’emprunter ses approches à d’autres disciplines des sciences humaines, elle prend le risque de perdre de vue son objet premier, l’œuvre d’art dans sa matérialité, et son outil le plus fondamental : le connoisseurship. Celui-ci consiste à établir l’identité des œuvres, en les replaçant dans la dynamique des parcours individuels et des échanges culturels....
