Parution : Karin Leonhard, « The Fertile Ground of Painting. 17th-Century Still Lives and Nature Pieces », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

Still Life painting thematizes the ability of Nature and Art to produce similarities and is therefore predestined for a theorization of mimetic strcutures of Art in general. 17th-Century Netherlandish Still Life painting actively participated in the intellectual discourse of natural philosophy and the natural sciences, even though art history until recently described it, somewhat simplifying, as realistic-representative painting. We urgently need a rehabilitation of the notion of Mimesis. The author restarts the discussion, by putting...

Publication : Giuliano Pisani, La Chapelle des Scrovegni, Milan, Skira, 2021

Giuliano Pisani nous accompagne au coeur d’un des plus grands chefs-d’oeuvre de l’art occidental : les fresques peintes par Giotto pour la Chapelle des Scrovegni. Giotto y révolutionne le langage de la peinture en introduisant le réalisme, en décrivant les sentiments, en portant un soin minutieux aux détails, à l’exactitude architecturale, à la scansion de l’espace, à la perspective qui rythme les différents plans et crée la profondeur, dans un triomphe de couleur et de...

Parution : Nerida Newbigin, « Making a Play for God: The Sacre Rappresentazioni of Renaissance Florence », 2021

It offers...
