Parution : Gail Elizabeth Solberg, « Taddeo di Bartolo. Siena’s Painter in the Early Quattrocento », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

Taddeo di Bartolo, Siena’s premier painter in the years around 1400, is the focus of a cultural history of a great Italian school in an understudied period. His patrons commissioned important fresco cycles and the most impressive polyptychs of the age. In part a travelogue, the text follows Taddeo (ca 1362-1422) from training in straitened times at Siena across central and northern Italy. Ten years of itinerancy drew him to various Tuscan centers, along the...

Conférence : Daniel M. Unger, « Ambiguity in the works of Caravaggio », en ligne, 20 juillet 2022, 18h15-20h

The talk will address works of art that Caravaggio completed in Rome. The focus of the talk will be on the ambiguity of presentation that one can discern in his paintings and on how this ambiguity clarifies every time a certain aspect of his ideas. Caravaggio’s sophisticated language comes in contrast to his choice to represent his figures as simple and poor. His unconventional, nonconformist, and independent approach is marked by a certain ambiguity, obscurity,...
