Combining historical insights with a discerning appreciation of the work, White brings...

Parution : Jérémie Koering, « Les iconophages. Une histoire de l’ingestion des images », Arles, Actes Sud, 2021

Manger ou boire des images… quelle drôle d’idée ! Et pourtant, depuis l’Antiquité, on n’a cessé de se repaître de fresques, d’icônes, de sculptures, de gravures, d’hosties estampées, de gaufres héraldiques, de représentations en massepain ou de mets sculptés… Spécifiquement produits pour être consommés ou détournés de leur destination première pour être ingérés, ces artéfacts figuratifs ont non seulement pu être regardés, mais encore incorporés sous forme solide ou liquide. Mais comment expliquer pareille attitude...

Parution : Heather Graham et Lauren G. Kilroy-Ewbank (dir.), Emotions, Art, and Christianity in the Transatlantic World, 1450–1800, Leyde, Brill, 2021

Emotions, Art, and Christianity in the Transatlantic World, c. 1450–1800 is a collection of studies variously exploring the role of visual and material culture in shaping early modern emotional experiences. The volume’s transatlantic framework moves from The Netherlands, Spain, and Italy to Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and the Philippines, and centers on visual culture as a means to explore how emotions differ in their local and global “contexts” amidst the many shifts occurring c. 1450–1800. These themes...

Parution : Jennifer Cochran Anderson et Douglas N. Dow (dir.), Visualizing the Past in Italian Renaissance Art, Leyde, Brill, 2021

The essays in Visualizing the Past in Italian Renaissance Art address a foundational concept that was as central to early modern thinking as it is to our own: that the past is always an important part of the present. Written by the friends, students, and colleagues of Dr. Brian Curran, former professor of Art History at the Pennsylvania State University, these authors demonstrate how reverberations of the past within the present are intrinsic to the ways in...

Parution : Anne-Sophie V. Radermecker, Anonymous Art at Auction The Reception of Early Flemish Paintings in the Western Art Market, Leyde, Brill, 2021

Working with a data set accounting for 13,000 auction sales results, Anne-Sophie V. Radermecker explores what contemporary buyers value when purchasing paintings of unknown or uncertain authorship, and which variables influence price formation mechanisms in this market segment. The principle finding of this book is not only that historical names matter in the art market, but so do all other alternative identification strategies that art market players use to label anonymous paintings. Indirect names, provisional...

Parution : Matthew D. Shoaf, Monumental Sounds Art and Listening before Dante, Leyde, Brill, 2021

In Monumental Sounds, Matthew G. Shoaf examines interactions between sight and hearing in spectacular church decoration in Italy between 1260-1320. In this « age of vision, » authorities’ concerns about whether and how worshipers listened to sacred speech spurred Giotto and other artists to reconfigure sacred stories to activate listening and ultimately bypass phenomenal experience for attitudes of inner receptivity. New naturalistic styles served that work, prompting viewers to give voice to depicted speech and guiding them toward...

Parution : Gitta Bertram, Nils Büttner et Claus Zittel (dir.), Gateways to the Book, Leyde, Brill, 2021

Gateways to the Book investigates the complex image-text relationships between frontispieces and illustrated title pages with the following texts in European books published between 1500 and 1800. Although interest in this broad field of research has increased in the past decades, many varieties of title pages, many printers and books remain as yet unstudied. The fifteen essays collected in this volume tackle this field from a great variety of academic approaches asking how the images can...
