Parution : L. Bosch, « Mannerism, Spirituality and Cognition. The Art Of Enargeia », Routledge, 2020

This book employs a new approach to the art of sixteenth-century Europe by incorporating rhetoric and theory to enable a reinterpretation of elements of Mannerism as being grounded in sixteenth-century spirituality. Lynette M. F. Bosch examines the conceptual vocabulary found in sixteenth-century treatises on art from Giorgio Vasari to Federico Zuccari, which analyses how language and spirituality complement the visual styles of Mannerism. By exploring the way in which writers from Leone Ebreo to Gabriele...

Colloque : « Église(s) et vies des Grands Hommes. Les renouvellements de la biographie religieuse entre Renaissance et réformes (Italie/Europe, 1300-1700)», Ecole française de Rome, 12-13 mars 2020

La représentation en série des « grands hommes» devient, dans l’Europe de la fin du Moyen Âge et de la première modernité un instrument d’exaltation d’individus contemporains, une modalité d’écriture de l’histoire du temps présent et de mise en scène de la gloire et du triomphe des institutions. Loin de se cantonner aux portraits des princes et des rois, des hommes de guerre ou des lettrés et artistes laïcs, le motif des hommes illustres pénètre...

Appel à communication : « ‘Remarkable women’: Female patronage of religious institutions, 1350-1550 », Londres, The Courtauld Institute of Art, date limite le 10 avril 2020

This conference seeks to explore the ways in which women patronised and interacted with monasteries and religious houses during the late Middle Ages, how they commissioned devotional and commemorative art for monastic settings, and the ways in which these donations were received and understood by their intended audiences. The artistic donations of lay patrons to religious institutions has become a fruitful area of study in recent years, but the specific role played by women in...

Parution : P. Bokody, A. Nagel (eds.), « Renaissance Meta-Painting », Brepols, 2019.

The volume offers an overview of meta-pictorial tendencies in book illumination, mural and panel painting during the Italian and Northern Renaissance. It examines visual forms of self-awareness in the changing context of Latin Christianity and claims the central role of the Renaissance in the establishment of the modern condition of art. Meta-painting refers to the ways in which artworks playfully reveal or critically expose their own fictiveness, and is considered a constitutive aspect of Western...

Parution : A. L. Williams, « Satire, Veneration, and St. Joseph in Art, c. 1300-1550 », Amsterdam university press, 2019.

Satire, Veneration, and St. Joseph in Art, c. 1300.1550 is the first book to reclaim satire as a central component of Catholic altarpieces, devotional art, and veneration, moving beyond humor’s relegation to the medieval margins or to the profane arts alone. The book challenges humor’s perception as a mere teaching tool for the laity and the antithesis of ‘high’ veneration and theology, a divide perpetuated by Counter-Reformation thought and the inheritance of Mikhail Bakhtin (Rabelais...

The matter of food may illuminate or complicate histories of labor, leisure, science, production, ethical considerations, religious discourse and practices, and environmental concerns. Eating and drinking are not...
