Conférence : Diane Bodart, « In the Mirror of Armor », en ligne, 7 avril 2021

In the early fifteenth century, while new treatments of steel surfaces elaborated in Northern Italy made armor as shiny and reflective as a mirror, the refinement of glazes reached by oil painting in the Low-Countries allowed the representation of such optical effects. At the encounter between these two new technologies, the pictorial detail of the reflection became the site for experimentation with its transformative potentialities. Reflections on armor, like those on mirrors, may operate a...

Conférence en ligne : Stephen J. Campbell, Renaissance Italian Art after the Spatial Turn, Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, le 6 avril 2021, de 17h à 19h

In the wake of History of art‘s « spatial turn », the historiography of pre-modern Italy has seemed more peripheral than central. To what extent have conversations about art as instrument of a colonizing process, as a conduit for cultural exchange, of translation and adaptation by colonial subjects, métissage, transfert culturel, and so on transformed the way we might conceive the artistic geography of Italy in the era before and after Vasari’s history of art imposed a...

Colloque en ligne : Reconsidering Raphael, 9-10 avril 2021

Registration deadline: Apr 8, 2021 April 6, 2020 marked the quincentenary of the death of Raffaello Sanzio (1483-1520), one of the most brilliant and consequential artists in the western tradition. Praised during his lifetime as “Prince of Painters” (pictorum princeps), a description rendered indelible by Giorgio Vasari, this characterization long served to obscure Raphael’s artistic achievements in other modes. He was in reality an impresario in many media: revered in his own day as Rome’s...

Parution : Jennifer Cochran Anderson et Douglas N. Dow (dir.), Visualizing the Past in Italian Renaissance Art, Leyde, Brill, 2021

The essays in Visualizing the Past in Italian Renaissance Art address a foundational concept that was as central to early modern thinking as it is to our own: that the past is always an important part of the present. Written by the friends, students, and colleagues of Dr. Brian Curran, former professor of Art History at the Pennsylvania State University, these authors demonstrate how reverberations of the past within the present are intrinsic to the ways in...
