Parution : Daniel Maira (dir.), « Mollesses renaissantes. Défaillances et assouplissement du masculin », Paris, Droz, 2021

Dans Il Libro del Cortegiano de Baldassare Castiglione, le personnage du comte Louis de Canossa s’en prend aux courtisans mous et efféminés qui se crêpent les cheveux, s’épilent les sourcils et se fardent comme les femmes les plus lascives. Tout risque d’avilissement d’une plénitude virile est ainsi à exécrer. La virilité réclame au XVIe siècle une posture éthique, physique et rhétorique à laquelle tous les hommes sont appelés à se conformer. Cette injonction à un...

Parution : Nicola Suthor, « Bravura: Virtuosity and Ambition in Early Modern European Painting », Princeton University Press, 2021

The painterly style known as bravura emerged in sixteenth-century Venice and spread throughout Europe during the seventeenth century. While earlier artistic movements presented a polished image of the artist by downplaying the creative process, bravura celebrated a painter’s distinct materials, virtuosic execution, and theatrical showmanship. This resulted in the further development of innovative techniques and a popular understanding of the artist as a weapon-wielding acrobat, impetuous wunderkind, and daring rebel. In Bravura, Nicola Suthor offers...

Parution : Nico van Hout, « Study Heads. Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard, Part XX, 2 », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

This book is devoted to a remarkable aspect of Rubens’s painted production. It investigates and catalogues not only works that Ludwig Burchard (1886–1960) gathered into the category of ‘Study Heads’, but also head studies by artists closely connected to Rubens’s workshop which were demonstrably used in his paintings. The existence of a stock of study heads or tronies allowed Rubens and his collaborators to exploit the same figures in many different contexts and create satisfying...

Parution : Andreea Badea (dir.), Making Truth in Early Modern Catholicism, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

Scholarship has come to value the uncertainties haunting early modern knowledge cultures; indeed, the awareness of the fragility and plurality of knowledge is now offered as a key element of « Baroque Science ». Yet early modern actors never questioned the possibility of certainty itself; including the notion that truth is out there, universal, and therefore situated at one remove from human manipulations. This book addresses the central question of how early modern actors managed not to succumb to...

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...
