Exposition : « Visualizing the Virgin Mary », Los Angeles, The Getty Center, 11 octobre 2022-8 janvier 2023

Although the Virgin Mary is one of the most important figures in the Christian tradition, she is little mentioned in the Bible. Drawn from the Getty Museum’s collection of medieval manuscripts, as well as a few choice regional loans, this exhibition shows how fewer than a dozen references to Mary grew into myriad stories and images that celebrate her as a personal intercessor, a compassionate mother, and a heavenly queen.

Colloque : « The Role of the Senses in Medieval Liturgies and Rituals », Padoue, Palazzo Bo – Aula Nievo, 21-23 septembre 2022

By the Late Middle Ages, the liturgy has become the most important and elaborate ceremonial of Christianity in an already highly ritualised society. Indeed, rituals dominated the everyday life of the faithful, from the Divine Office and the Mass to the individual reading of the Hours; and they accompanied the life of people from their birth to their last breath. Besides, liturgy called for collective involvement and aimed at engaging the faithful by stimulating their...

En 1218 santo Domingo fundó en Madrid el segundo monasterio femenino, tras Prouilhe, vinculado a la Orden de Predicadores, y el primero en la Península Ibérica.

Parution : Lynn F. Jacobs, « The Painted Triptychs of Fifteenth-Century Germany. Case Studies of Blurred Boundaries », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book presents four case studies that interrogate how German fifteenth-century painted triptychs engage with, and ultimately blur various boundaries. Some of the boundaries are internal to the triptych format, for example, transgressed frames between narratives scenes on triptychs’ interiors, or interconnections between imagery on triptychs’ interiors and exteriors. Other blurred boundaries are regional ones between the Netherlands and Cologne; metaphysical ones between heaven and earth; and artistic distinctions between the media of painting and...

Parution : Marsha Libina, “Sebastiano del Piombo and the Sacred Image”, Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

On account of the artists’ collaborative practice, Sebastiano del Piombo’s oeuvre is often misconstrued as a coloristic supplement to Michelangelo’s disegno or as a mere extension of the older master’s drawings and ideas. Marsha Libina’s book complicates this narrative by offering a critical reevaluation of the devotional art of Sebastiano del Piombo (1485–1547), an important Venetian artist whose Roman work stands at the nexus of questions regarding art, religious reform and the largely unexplored history of artistic collaboration. Investigating...

Exposition : “Michelangelo: i bronzi della Passione”, Mantoue, Palazzo Ducale, du 18 mars au 15 juin 2022.

Michelangelo Buonarroti è semplicemente il “divino” Michelangelo, l’archetipo degli artisti di tutti i tempi. Grande fu la sua fama, anche in vita: nonostante la sua attività si sia concentrata su Roma e Firenze, anche la Mantova dei Gonzaga dovette fare i conti con l’ineludibile influenza di quel gigante. Il 22 febbraio del 1527 Federico II scriveva di essere da “molt’anni (…) amatore dello excellentissimo messer Michele Angelo” e – in un significativo ribaltamento di ruoli...
