Étiqueté : Contre-Réforme

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...

Parution : Philippe Desmette, François De Vriendt, « Les saints anciens au temps de la Réforme catholique (Europe occidentale, XVIe-XVIIIe siècles). Déclin ou renouveau ? », Bruxelles, Société des Bollandistes, 2021

Si tous les saints ont acquis valeur de témoins de la foi aux yeux des fidèles catholiques, leurs actes, leurs attitudes et leurs messages sont des plus variables selon les époques. Les quatorze contributions de cet ouvrage envisagent l’évolution de la popularité des «vieux» saints médiévaux – premiers évêques, martyrs locaux, fondateurs et fondatrices d’abbayes, pieuses vierges, missionnaires antérieurs à l’an mil – à l’époque de la Réforme catholique, aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles. Ces...

Parution : Virginia Cox, Shannon McHugh, « Vittoria Colonna. Poetry, Religion, Art, Impact », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

This edited collection presents fresh and original work on Vittoria Colonna, perhaps the outstanding female figure of the Italian Renaissance, a leading Petrarchist poet, and an important figure in the Italian Reform movement. Until recently best known for her close spiritual friendship with Michelangelo, she is increasingly recognized as a powerful and distinctive poetic voice, a cultural and religious icon, and an important literary model for both men and women. This volume comprises compelling new...

Appel à contribution : « Dominion of the Sacred. Image, Cartography, Knowledge of the City after the Council of Trent », date limite le 1er octobre 2020

Argument Between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Italian political geography was polarized by a number of cities of different sizes and traditions: Rome and Florence, Milan and Naples, Genoa and Venice, Turin and Modena, either ancient republics or new dynastic capitals, satellites of the great European monarchies or small Signorias. The conjunction — less frequently the conflict — between the mandates of the Council of Trent and the interests of the ruling élites of...

Colloque : « Arte e vita religiosa al tempo di Cosimo I. Continuità e cambiamento », Florence, Kunsthistorisches Institut, 14-15 novembre 2019

Organizzato dall’Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore e dal Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz in occasione del V centenario della nascita di Cosimo I dei Medici (1519–1574). All’epoca di Cosimo I de’ Medici l’arte era lo strumento comunicativo più diffuso, sia per la Chiesa che per lo Stato. Il Concilio di Trento ha poi invitato le istituzioni committenti a ripensare i temi tradizionali, e all’interno di questa dinamica avevano particolare importanza sia l’evidente continuità dottrinale con...

Exposition : « Heavenly Earth : Images of Saint Francis at La Verna », Washington – The National Gallery of Art, du 25 février au 8 juillet 2018.

The Descrizione del Sacro Monte della Vernia (1612) depicts the monastery and dramatic rocky terrain of La Verna, the site where Saint Francis received the stigmata. The gifted baroque draftsman Jacopo Ligozzi was hired to illustrate the volume and he cleverly designed overslips pasted on 5 of the 22 engraved illustrations in a before-and­-after fashion to demonstrate the changes to the topography since Saint Francis’s time. Drawing on the Gallery’s holdings of Franciscan imagery, spanning the 15th...

Colloque international : “La reconquête par le livre et l’estampe. Au cœur de la réforme catholique dans les Pays-Bas (XVIe-XVIIe siècles)”, Université de Liège, 23-24 février 2017

La reconquête par le livre et l’estampe Au cœur de la réforme catholique dans les Pays-Bas (XVIe-XVIIe siècles) Université de Liège Salle des Professeurs Si l’utilisation du support imprimé par les mouvements réformés protestants doit être considérée comme le premier phénomène de mass média de l’histoire et qu’elle a, à ce titre, engendré une bibliographie écrasante, force est de constater que l’exploitation du livre et de l’estampe par la réforme catholique n’a pas bénéficié de...

Séminaire: “Vasari, Arezzo, and the Trecento: Art and the Medieval Tradition in Renaissance Tuscany”, Research Forum Seminar Room, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London, Wednesday 23 November 2016 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

In the 1550s and 1560s Giorgio Vasari renovated the Pieve and cathedral in his hometown of Arezzo and created several new altarpieces for the Pieve, where he established his family funerary chapel. These projects traditionally, and understandably, have been closely associated with Counter-Reformation tenets and treatises. The art and architectural history of both sites, however, suggests that Vasari was as much, if not more, invested in stressing continuity and cohesion of ritual and iconographic tradition, especially that...
