Appel à publication : « Art and Death in the Netherlands », Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art, vol 72, 2021, date limite le 15 avril

In premodern times, death was a more visible phenomenon than now, due to high mortality rates, but also to the fact that dying and death and the subsequent phases of deposition, bereavement and remembrance – more so than today – were collectively experienced, publicly performed, and commemorated in enduring monuments. Remembrance was held to extend into perpetuity, on personal grounds of love and affection, and for political and religious reasons, the latter normatively being related...

Parution : Michael Tutton, Construction as Depicted in Western Art, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

The Art of Building has captured the interest of artists from the Roman period to today. The process of construction appears in western art in all its details, trades, and operations.

Technical terms are explained and detailed interpretations of each work are provided, with insights into the artists’ inspiration and themes. Even paintings...

Appel à contribution : « Fortifications savantes, fortifications de savants », Bellecroix, 22-24 octobre 2021, date limite le 1er mai 2021

Quoi de commun entre une fortification classique telle que Neuf-Brisach, un château Renaissance comme Maulnes, une tour maîtresse romane telle que Châtillon-Coligny ? Toutes trois sont l’expression d’un tracé savant, dont la conception exige une conceptualisation dépassant l’utilisation des stéréotypes que sont le quadrangle ou le cercle. Quelles logiques, quels référentiels de doctrine ont présidé à la mise au point de ces tracés extraordinaires de l’Antiquité à l’époque moderne ? Faut-il y voir la volonté de maîtres...

Appel à contribution : « Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts », 12-14 décembre 2021

This conference will present how citizens see their cities and how they physically or mentally compare it with the ideal city in their own perceptions. However, a city’s identity presents distinguishing factors that make it unique and unlike any other. It covers a huge variety of topics such as the conservation of the cultures and the identity of the city through the designing and planning processes. It discusses the different ideologies, approaches of a more...

Parution : William E. Wallace, Michelangelo, God’s Architect: The Story of His Final Years and Greatest Masterpiece, Princeton University Press, 2020

As he entered his seventies, the great Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo despaired that his productive years were past. Anguished by the death of friends and discouraged by the loss of commissions to younger artists, this supreme painter and sculptor began carving his own tomb. It was at this unlikely moment that fate intervened to task Michelangelo with the most ambitious and daunting project of his long creative life. Michelangelo, God’s Architect is the first book to...

Parution : Jill Pederson, « Leonardo, Bramante, and the Academia: Art and Friendship in Fifteenth-Century Milan », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

This book is the first study to provide a comprehensive historical and theoretical account of the Academia Leonardi Vinci. Pederson brings together literary sources to offer a new interpretation of the academy not as one singular entity, but as a collection of academic modalities in Renaissance Milan. Eventually these various modalities converged around their namesake Leonardo da Vinci, as well as the architect Donato Bramante. This group drew together not only humanists, as in other...

Cycle de conférences : Sabine Frommel, « Peindre l’architecture durant la Renaissance italienne », La Chaire du Louvre, Paris, Musée du Louvre, du 28 septembre au 12 octobre 2020

Dès l’aube de la Renaissance, la mise au point de la perspective centrale et les tentatives d’appropriation de l’héritage classique ont favorisé le renouveau de la représentation fictive de l’architecture. Cette tradition léguée par l’Antiquité romaine avait connu, sous des conditions certes différentes, un premier essor en Italie à partir de la fin du 13e siècle. La fortune dont cette pratique bénéficia est surtout due à des artistes au profil polyvalent suscitant des interactions et...
