Journée d’étude : « L’image contrainte. Place, forme et fonction de l’iconographie dans les arts décoratifs et précieux », Lille, Université de Lille, 3 avril 2024

La conception d’un objet d’art est marquée par la recherche constante d’équilibre entre fonctionnalité et matérialité, entre structure et décor. Aussi, sa dimension utilitaire initiale – qui en constitue la raison d’être – s’avère-t-elle donc limitante, dès lors que le discours symbolique que l’on souhaite lui assigner, développé par l’iconographie et l’ornement, se confronte aux réalités techniques de sa construction. La mise en image d’un thème iconographique se voit alors, de prime abord, contrainte par la forme...

Colloque : The Art and Industry of Stucco Decoration, en ligne et à Rome, 3-4 février 2022

Stucco decoration has been traditionally studied considering its formal and artistic qualities. Despite much research and numerous publications have explored the works of the stuccatori and their cultural context, there has been little attention on the “art and industry” of these artists, and on how their practical and technical “know-how” contributed to the great professional and artistic success that they enjoyed. Many stucco decorations all over Europe have been realized by masters coming from the...

Colloque : Alabaster as a Material for Medieval and Renaissance Sculpture, MAD Paris & Musée du Louvre, Paris, 18-20 Janvier 2022

The 8th ARDS annual colloquium focuses on alabaster as a material for European sculpture from the 14th until the 17th century.

Ranging from...

Appel à contribution : « The Space Between Non-Arts and Fine Arts: Confronting Gender and the Decorative Arts, 1500–1800 », Birmingham, 14-17 avril 2021, date limite le 19 octobre 2020

The decorative arts are not easily defined and have long occupied the shifting space between the non-arts and the fine arts. During the early modern period, prominent women, such as Catherine de’ Medici and Amalia van Solms-Braunfels, were at the forefront of amassing impressive collections of decorative objects. Limoges enamel pieces created by Susanne de Court and embroideries fabricated by Katharina Rozee were highly sought after by collectors throughout Europe. Recent exhibitions and publications highlight...

En plus de l’étude des matériaux constitutifs des œuvres, des recherches en histoire de l’art, des campagnes de restaurations nécessitant l’analyse des polychromies ont permis de rassembler de nouvelles connaissances. Dans...
