Séminaire : Rembrandt Duits, Renaissance Art and Material Culture, Londres, Warburg Institute, 28 juin – 2 juillet 2021

As a boy, the Basle physician Felix Platter (1536-1614) once got in trouble for loitering at a market stall to admire some biscuit moulds. When recalling the episode in his memoirs, Platter described the carved wooden biscuit moulds as « works of art ». The anecdote raises the question: if, around the middle of the sixteenth century, an educated person such as Platter could perceive biscuit moulds as « art », what else could be? This course seeks to...

Appel à communication : « Dressing a Picture : Reimagining the Court Portrait, 1500–1800 », Université de Cambridge, date limite le 4 janvier 2021

Summary As Ulinka Rublack asserts in Dressing Up, her seminal book on dress in early modern Europe, society was extremely dress-literate and nowhere more so than in the courtly environments that generated and fuelled fashion. Within these sartorially-minded elite communities, one was constantly on display. Capturing dressed sitters in paint for prosperity, portraiture was a unique vehicle for the inherent dialectic in clothing between subject and observer, and presentation and perception. As such, this conference will...

Appel à communication : « Rituel et image : textiles et révélation du sacré », 6-7 mai 2021, Paris, Galerie Colbert, date limite le 15 février 2021

Journées d’études : « Rituel et image : textiles et révélation du sacré », Paris, Galerie Colbert, Salle Vasari, 6-7 mai 2021 Qu’ils participent des agencements plastiques de l’image ou qu’ils soient déployés autour de l’autel, les textiles, en alliant mobilité et fluidité, jouent un rôle de première importance dans la révélation du sacré. Depuis le milieu du XIIIesiècle, l’exaltation de la Présence Réelle et l’essor des images dévotionnelles alimentent un intense « désir de voir ». L’image elle-même,...

Parution : Bert De Munck et Dries Lyna, Concepts of Value in European Material Culture, 1500-1900, Londres, Routledge, 2020

In contemporary society it would seem self-evident that people allow the market to determine the values of products and services. For everything from a loaf of bread to a work of art to a simple haircut, value is expressed in monetary terms and seen as determined primarily by the ‘objective’ interplay between supply and demand. Yet this ‘price-mechanism’ is itself embedded in conventions and frames of reference which differed according to time, place and product...

Appel à communication : « The Virgin as Auctoritas : The Authority of the Virgin Mary and female moral–doctrinal authority in the Middle Ages », Association for Art History Annual Conference, Birmingham, date limite le 19 octobre 2020

Annual Association for Art History Conference, Birmingham 14 – 17 April 2021 Deadline 19 October 2020 This session aims at exploring a fundamental issue: female authority through the lens of visual/material culture. It involves prominently the Virgin Mary – as well as figures of female authority in the medieval world – because in the late decades of the 20th century, feminist thinkers pointed at the ‘negative model’ offered by the Virgin Mary since for centuries...

Appel à communication : « Collecting and Display of Small, Portable Objects (15th–17th century) », RSA 2021, date limite le 30 juillet 2020

Session du Congrès de la Renaissance Society of America – Dublin, 7-10 avril 2021 The taste for small objects, such as gems, jewels, coins, small antiquities, statuettes and miniature works of art is evident in leading collections from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries. The materiality of small precious objects and their portability raise questions about the dynamics and the reasons behind the taste for small things, addressing concepts of intimacy, privacy and public access in...
