Parution : Francesco Freddolini et Marco Musillo, Art, Mobility, and Exchange in Early Modern Tuscany and Eurasia, Londres, Routledge, 2020

This book explores how the Medici Grand Dukes pursued ways to expand their political, commercial, and cultural networks beyond Europe, cultivating complex relations with the Ottoman Empire and other Islamicate regions, and looking further east to India, China, and Japan. The chapters in this volume discuss how casting a global, cross-cultural net was part and parcel of the Medicean political vision. Diplomatic gifts, items of commercial exchange, objects looted at war, maritime connections, and political...

Parution : Grażyna Jurkowlaniec et Magdalena Herman, The Reception of the Printed Image in the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries, Londres, Routledge, 2020

This book examines the early development of the graphic arts from the perspectives of material things, human actors and immaterial representations while broadening the geographic field of inquiry to Central Europe and the British Isles and considering the reception of the prints on other continents. The role of human actors proves particularly prominent, i.e. the circumstances that informed creators’, producers’, owners’ and beholders’ motivations and responses. Certainly, such a complex relationship between things, people and...

Parution : Michael W. Cole, Sofonisba’s Lesson: A Renaissance Artist and Her Work, Princeton University Press, 2020

Sofonisba Anguissola (ca. 1535–1625) was the daughter of minor Lombard aristocrats who made the unprecedented decision to have her trained as a painter outside the family house. She went on to serve as an instructor to Isabel of Valois, the young queen of Spain. Sofonisba’s Lesson sheds new light on Sofonisba’s work, offering a major reassessment of a Renaissance painter who changed the image of women’s education in Europe—and who transformed Western attitudes about who could be...

Parution : Elizabeth Pilliod, Pontormo at San Lorenzo, Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

This book completely revises and corrects the standard interpretations and understanding of Jacopo da Pontomo’s lost masterpiece, the frescoes in the choir of the church of San Lorenzo at Florence, Italy. Pontormo’s frescoes in San Lorenzo were the most important cycle of the sixteenth century after Michelangelo’s Sistine frescoes.  They had an enormous impact on artists until their destruction in the eighteenth century, and their interpretation has also had a significant bearing not only on...

Parution : Thomas Troy, « Poussin’s Women : Sex and Gender in the Artist’s Works », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Poussin’s Women: Sex and Gender in the Artist’s Works examines the paintings and drawings of the well-known seventeenth-century French painter Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) from a gender studies perspective, focusing on a critical analysis of his representations of women. The book’s thematic chapters investigate Poussin’s women in their roles as predators, as lustful or the objects of lust, as lovers, killers, victims, heroines, or models of virtue. Poussin’s paintings reflect issues of gender within his social...

Parution : Caroline Walker Bynum, Dissimilar Similitudes: Devotional Objects in Late Medieval Europe, Princeton University Press, 2020

Between the twelfth and the sixteenth centuries, European Christians used in worship a plethora of objects, not only prayer books, statues, and paintings but also pieces of natural materials, such as stones and earth, considered to carry holiness, dolls representing Jesus and Mary, and even bits of consecrated bread and wine thought to be miraculously preserved flesh and blood. Theologians and ordinary worshippers alike explained, utilized, justified, and warned against some of these objects, which...

Parution : Marcello Beato, Carlo Andrea Postinger (dir.), Palazzo Noriller a Rovereto Nuovi studi interdisciplinari, Milan, Silvana Editoriale, 2020

L’Accademia roveretana degli Agiati ha organizzato nel 2018 una tavola rotonda incentrata sull’interpretazione del programma decorativo che caratterizza un antico edificio del centro storico di Rovereto: palazzo Noriller. In seguito ai restauri di cui è stato fatto oggetto, infatti, esso ha restituito nel 1992 ampi brani affrescati di epoca tardomedievale, sia sulla facciata esterna, sia in una saletta interna. Gli interrogativi circa il soggetto, ma anche la committenza e il significato di questi dipinti murali...

Parution : Paula Nuttall, Geoffrey Nuttall and Michael Kwakkelstein, Filippino Lippi, Leyde, Brill, 2020

This volume presents fourteen papers originally delivered at the international conference Filippino Lippi: Beauty, Invention and Intelligence, at the Dutch University Institute (NIKI), Florence in 2017. Filippino (1457-1504), although one of the most original and gifted artists of the Florentine renaissance, has attracted less scholarly attention than his father Fra Filippo Lippi or his master Botticelli, and very little has been published on him in English. This book, authored by leading Renaissance art historians, covers diverse...

Parution : Karl A.E. Enenkel et Jan de Jong (dir.), Re-inventing Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Leyde, Brill, 2020

This volume explores early modern recreations of myths from Ovid’s immensely popular Metamorphoses, focusing on the creative ingenium of artists and writers and on the peculiarities of the various media that were applied. The contributors try to tease out what (pictorial) devices, perspectives, and interpretative markers were used that do not occur in the original text of the Metamorphoses, what aspects were brought to the fore or emphasized, and how these are to be explained. Expounding the whatabouts of...
