Appel à contribution : « ‘Nor thou nor thy religion dost controule, The amorousnesse of an harmonious Soule’: Rethinking Devotional Works and Practices in the British Isles (16th-18th c.) », Nanterre, Université Paris Nanterre, 3-4 avril 2025, date limite le 30 septembre 2023

When John Donne published Devotions upon Emergent Occasions in 1624, he followed in the footsteps of a long tradition of devotional publications. Four hundred years later the concerns voiced by the English poet still resonate and invite one to think about the evolution and legacy of devotional works which have never ceased to appeal to both devout practitioners and lay readers alike. Such works convey the strong and complex nature of the relationship that the...

Parution : Sarah A. Bendall, “Shaping Femininity: Foundation Garments, the Body & Women in Early Modern England”, Londres, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2022

In sixteenth and seventeenth-century England, the female silhouette underwent a dramatic change. This very structured form, created using garments called bodies and farthingales, existed in various extremes in Western Europe and beyond, in the form of stays, corsets, hoop petticoats and crinolines, right up until the twentieth century. With a nuanced approach that incorporates a stunning array of visual and written sources and drawing on transdisciplinary methodologies, Shaping Femininity explores the relationship between material culture...

Appel à contribution : « The Material Culture of Magnificence in Early Modern Cities », San Juan, The Renaissance Society of America, 9-11 mars 2023, date limite le 25 juin 2022

This session proposes to study the material culture of magnificence in early modern cities as a specific topic. Magnificentia, by its definition as a virtue, is very much concerned with the individual. By making appropriate expenditures to create grand works, the individual manifests his or her virtuousness, thus making it visible to a broader community. This manifestation occurs on multiple scales; in clothing, coachwork, tombs, city palaces, churches, as well as the design of urban space....

Parution : Meghan Doherty, « Engraving Accuracy in Early Modern England. Visual Communication and the Royal Society », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

The book traces major concepts including: the creation of the visual effects of accuracy through careful action and training; the development of visual judgment and connoisseurship; the role of a network in the production of knowledge; balancing readers’ expectations with representational conventions; and the effects of acts of collecting on the creation and circulation of knowledge. On the one hand, this study uncovers that approaches to knowledge production were different in the seventeenth century, as...

Parution : Robert Tittler, « Painting for a Living in Tudor and Early Stuart England », Suffolk, Boydell & Brewer, 2022

Examines the often overlooked political, social, and economic contexts in which painters in Tudor and Early Stuart England lived and worked. While famous artists such as Holbein, Rubens, or Van Dyck are all known for their creative periods in England or their employment at the English court, they still had to make ends meet, as did the less well-known practitioners of their craft. This book, by one of the leading historians of Tudor and Stuart...

Appel à contribution : « Close Encounters. Cross-Cultural Exchange between the Low Countries and Britain, 1500–1800 », La Haye, RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History, 22 septembre 2022, date limite le 1er mars 2022

The risks and challenges of migration are of compelling interest today. Over the last thirty years, research on early modern artists’ migration and on cultural exchange between the Low Countries and Britain has advanced rapidly, and has addressed many themes. The Dutch and Flemish artists’ communities in London, and the careers of individual artists at the English/British and Scottish courts, in particular, have received attention, as has the history of the collecting of Netherlandish art...
