Appel à contribution : « Collecting, Growing, and Exploring in Early Modernity », Paris, EPHE, 11 juin 2024, date limite le 15 janvier 2024

The last few decades have produced a number of studies devoted to the relationship between collecting and science, highlighting the relationship between a growing interest in botany and the fascination with the collection of naturalia, especially from the mid-sixteenth century onwards. These objects of natural origins aroused the admiration of enthusiasts and scientists alike. This passion for collecting reached various corners of society: the academic garden at Leiden University included an ambulacrum that housed dried...

Parution : Ana Diéguez, Angel Rodriguez Rebollo (dir.), « The Pictor Doctus, between Knowledge and Workshop Artists. Collections and Friendship in Europe, 1500-1900 », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

Recent research on the collections treasured by artists during their lifetime, or those collections they had access to, has contributed significantly to the understanding of their own compositions. Traditional historiography has favoured the study of the royal and aristocratic collections that could have inspired artists rather than of the artists’ own collections. Only those of the ‘great’ artists, such as Rubens, Bernini, Velázquez or Mengs, have been comprehensively examined. In the eighteenth century, the notion...

Parution : Inge Reist, “When Michelangelo Was Modern”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

Through case studies of collectors, patrons, and agents who redefined collecting and the art market, this volume illuminates how the changing status of the artist, rise of connoisseurship, role of intermediaries and new patterns of consumption established models for collecting and display that resemble those still practiced today. The book presents new research by recognized scholars who examine the motivations of collectors and agents, emphasizing how their collecting, patronage and advocacy could require support of...
