Conférences en ligne : « Circular Thinking: The Drawing Compass as a Tool of Premodern Creation in Europe », Warburg Institute, 10 et 11 juin 2021

‘Circular Thinking’ is a two-day online event devoted to the drawing compass (or ‘pair of compasses’), an essential tool of the premodern artist that came to represent divine Creation in Jewish and Christian (both Greek and Latin) exegetical traditions. Although now associated primarily with architecture, the compass was a transmedial instrument, integral to a range of artisanal operations. According to the artists’ handbooks of Theophilus and Cennini, the instrument was ready-to-hand, yet evidence of its...

Exposition : Lust, Love, and Loss in Renaissance Europe, Chicago, Smart Museum of Art, jusqu’au 13 juin 2021

Passion, violence, and virtue emerge in this exhibition as fundamental, intertwined elements in the artworks of Renaissance Europe. The objects on view—created for private homes and personal consumption—offer glimpses into the lives of artists and their audiences. Painters, printmakers, and craftsmen, inspired by popular literary sources including Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Boccaccio’s Decameron, and the Bible, interpreted their stories for everyday settings. Domestic objects such as painted panels and ceramics celebrated momentous life events, including marriage and childbirth, yet...

Colloque international : « Looking Back to Look Forward: Reshaping Ancient Figures in European Art, c. 1350-1650 », en ligne, 24-25 Juin 2021

The study of Antiquity rarely constitutes mere contemplation of things long gone. For centuries, ancient myth and historical figures have been sources of authority, prestige, and moral exemplarity, lenses through which to think about, and to some extent act upon, the present. This two-day conference aims to investigate notable examples of appropriation and reinvention, and to consider new interpretations of famous figures from ancient Greece, Rome, and the Old Testament, as found in c. 1350...

Enguerrand Quarton’s Coronation of the Virgin—a vividly coloured, densely populated tableau of heaven, earth, and the underworld—is one of the best preserved, visually complex, and finely executed altarpieces to survive from fifteenth-century France. It is also one of the best documented: its lengthy contract reveals that it was commissioned in 1453 by Jean de Montagny, a canon in Avignon, to be placed at the Carthusian monastery of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, just across the Rhône from the papal city....

Conférence : Victor Schmidt, « Renaissance Processional Banners and Standards from the Marches », en ligne, le 3 juin, 18h00

Processional banners and standards form a fascinating category in early modern painting. The largest group of extant Italian specimens were commissioned in the Marches (or painted by artists from that region). Some are modest artefacts, while others are the work of the greatest painters of the period, such as Gentile da Fabriano, Luca Signorelli, Perugino, Raphael and Titian. In this lecture, Victor Schmidt will discuss a number of aspects of these paintings, including typology, function,...

Colloque international : « The Shared Languages of Art and Science in Early Modern Europe », en ligne, 25-26 Juin 2021

While the term “science” is most often associated with the systematic study of the physical or natural world, up to the nineteenth century the term “scientia” referred to any branch of systematic knowledge, including the arts and other fields currently associated with the humanities. In the 1950s, the British philosopher C. P. Snow famously coined the term “two cultures” as a major cultural force of the nineteenth and twentieth century in order to describe the...

Art history employs language in a very particular way, one of its most basic aims being the verbal reconstruction of the visual past. The book seeks to shed light on the particular issues that English’s rise to prominence...
