Journée d’étude : « À l’ombre des maîtres : les artistes dits “secondaires” dans les arts en Europe du XIIe au XIXe siècle », Nantes, Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Ange Guépin, 5-6 décembre 2019

L’histoire de l’art se définit en grande partie par l’étude de la figure de l’artiste, et surtout par celle des maîtres autour desquels gravitent de nombreuses figures considérées comme secondaires.

Parution : J. Nicholas Napoli, « The Ethics of Ornament in Early Modern Naples. Fashioning the Certosa di San Martino », New York, Routledge, 2019

The Carthusian monks at San Martino began a series of decorative campaigns in the 1580s that continued until 1757, transforming the church of their monastery, the Certosa di San Martino, into a jewel of marble revetment, painting, and sculpture. The aesthetics of the church generate a jarring moral conflict: few religious orders honored the ideals of poverty and simplicity so ardently yet decorated so sumptuously. In this study, Nick Napoli explores the terms of this conflict...
