Parution : Daniel Wallace Maze, « Young Bellini », Yale University Press, 2021.

A revisionist history of the early life and career of Renaissance artist Giovanni Bellini Widely recognized as one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance, Giovanni Bellini is revered for his mastery of color, atmosphere and light. However, his early life and career remain something of a mystery. Daniel Wallace Maze expands on groundbreaking research that argues Jacopo Bellini was not Giovanni Bellini’s father, but rather his half-brother, and that Giovanni was born between...

Parution : Matthew J. Ward, « The Livery Collar in Late Medieval England and Wales. Politics, Identity and Affinity », Woodbridge, Boydell & Brewer, 2021

The livery collar had a pervasive presence in late-medieval England. Worn about the neck to denote service to a lord, references to the collar abound in government records, contemporary chronicles and correspondence, and many depictions of the collar can be found in illuminated manuscripts and on church monuments. From the fifteenth century the collar was regarded as a powerful symbol of royal power, the artefact associating the recipient with the king; it also played a...

Parution : D. Allart, A. Geremicca « Raphaël et la gravure. De Rome aux anciens Pays-Bas et à Liège », Liège, La collection d’Arts graphiques anciens du Musée Wittert, 2021

Raphaël était déjà devenu une figure de légende quand la maladie l’emporta le 6 avril 1520, le jour de son 37e anniversaire. Suite à sa disparition inopinée, le mythe qu’il incarnait prit encore de l’ampleur, d’autant que ses œuvres continuèrent d’exercer leur pouvoir de séduction sur les artistes et les amateurs d’art, non seulement en Italie mais aussi au Nord des Alpes. En effet, les créations de Raphaël faisaient parler d’elles bien au-delà des lieux...

Parution : Hanneke van Asperen, « Silver Saints. Prayers and Badges in Late Medieval Books », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Late medieval books served as treasure chests for all kinds of religious keepsakes, notably small metal badges. Devotees sewed these religious badges and pilgrimage souvenirs to the parchment of their treasured devotional books and manuscript illuminators depicted silver en gilt badges in the margins as if they are sewn to the pages. Medieval manuscripts are often admired for their esthetic qualities, but many of them also served a practical use as instruments for the physical...

Parution : DiFuria A. (dir.), Space, Image, and Reform in Early Modern Art : The Influence of Marcia Hall, Berlin, De Gruyter, 2021

The essays in Space, Image, and Reform in Early Modern Art build on Marcia Hall’s seminal contributions in several categories crucial for Renaissance studies, especially the spatiality of the church interior, the altarpiece’s facture and affectivity, the notion of artistic style, and the controversy over images in the era of Counter Reform. Accruing the advantage of critical engagement with a single paradigm, this volume better assesses its applicability and range. The book works cumulatively to...

Parution : G. Steyaert et alii (dir.), The Ghent Altarpiece, Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

The Ghent Altarpiece by Hubert and Jan van Eyck has always attracted both admiration and curiosity. Following the conservation of the paintings of the closed polyptych, it was the turn of those from the lower register of the open altarpiece – including the famous Adoration of the Lamb – to undergo a major research and conservation campaign by the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels) between 2016 and 2020. The findings reflect those for the closed altarpiece: large...

Parution : Samuel K. Cohn, Jr., « Paradoxes of Inequality in Renaissance Italy », Cambridge University Press, 2021

This Element explores the longest spell that can be computed from quantifiable fiscal records when the gap between rich and poor narrowed. It was the post-Black-Death century, c. 1375 to c. 1475. Paradoxically, with economic equality and prosperity on the rise, peasants, artisans and shopkeepers suffered losses in political representation and status within cultural spheres. Threatened by growing economic equality after the Black Death, elites preserved and then enhanced their political, social, and cultural distinction...

Parution : Benjamin Deruelle, Pascal Bastien, Lyse Roy (dir.), « Émotions en bataille, XVIe-XVIIIe siècle. Sentiments, sensibilités et communautés d’émotions de la première modernité », Paris, Hermann, 2021

Puissante, constructive et active, l’émotion est un lien social et un facteur de solidarité. Elle est à la source de nombreuses nouveautés associées à la première modernité et constitue le moteur d’importants basculements de l’ordre ancien. Alors que les expériences émotionnelles des acteurs et des observateurs peuvent différer radicalement, elles peuvent aussi être étroitement liées par l’interaction sociale, les représentations culturelles et visuelles et la médiatisation. C’est cet univers extraordinairement riche que nous proposons de...

Parution : D. Donetti, C. Rachele, Building with Paper: The Materiality of Renaissance Architectural Drawings, Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Against the scholarly tendency to treat architectural disegno in highly intellectualized terms, the essays collected in this volume offer a new perspective on this early modern practice, by reinserting it into the messy Lebenswelten of the architectural workshop and the building site. The introduction of paper is one of the major innovations of Early Modern architecture, and it had profound effects on its design processes. Wider use of paper changed representational conventions, while communication networks...
