Parution : C. Carman, « Leon Battista Alberti and Nicholas Cusanus. Towards an Epistemology of Vision for Italian Renaissance Art and Culture », Routledge, 2021

Providing a fresh evaluation of Alberti’s text On Painting (1435), along with comparisons to various works of Nicholas Cusanus – particularly his Vision of God (1450) – this study reveals a shared epistemology of vision. And, the author argues, it is one that reflects a more deeply Christian Neoplatonic ideal than is typically accorded Alberti. Whether regarding his purpose in teaching the use of a geometric single point perspective system, or more broadly in rendering...

Parution : J. H. Chages, et al., « The Visualization of Knowledge in Medieval and Early Modern Europe », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

This collection of essays by leading scholars reflects new interest in how graphic devices contributed to the production of knowledge during a formative period of European history. All of us are exposed to graphic means of communication on a daily basis. Our life seems flooded with lists, tables, charts, diagrams, models, maps, and forms of notation. Although we now take such devices for granted, their role in the codification and transmission of knowledge evolved within...

Atelier de recherche international : « Corps troublants. Images et imaginaires dans la première modernité », Académie de France à Rome, Villa Médicis, 26-28 novembre 2020

Dans la culture visuelle de la première modernité, la représentation de corps contorsionnés, désarticulés ou fragmentaires, de visages grimaçants ou déformés par des émotions ou des actions particulières, de corps ouverts révélant organes et orifices, peut saisir autant que perturber le spectateur. Ces images provoquent une incongruité troublante, possiblement agressive. Mais qu’est-ce qui cause ce trouble ? Peut-on définir et circonscrire cet affect ? A-t-il toujours été ressenti ainsi à travers le temps et dans...

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...

Parution : Rosa-Maria Dessi, « Les spectres du Bon Gouvernement d’Ambrogio Lorenzetti. Artistes, cités communales et seigneurs angevins au Trecento », Paris, PUF, 2017.

  Présentation de l’éditeur : Les fresques dites du « Bon Gouvernement », peintes au XIVe siècle par Ambrogio Lorenzetti sur trois des murs de la salle de la paix du palais communal de Sienne ont nourri le récit national italien exaltant l’âge des Communes libres et démocratiques : le bon gouvernement d’une ville s’oppose au mauvais gouvernement du tyran. Déstabilisant les présupposés des interprétations traditionnelles de ces fascinantes réalisations de l’art gothique, en y...

Appel à publication : « Emotions, Art, and Religion in Europe, Africa, and the Americas, c. 1400–1800 », date limite le 30 mars 2018

The “emotional turn” has prompted numerous studies on the history of emotions in the medieval and early modern periods. Many of these studies have been oriented towards texts rather than images, although recently visual culture, especially among medievalists, has played a more prominent role in these investigations. Nevertheless, there is still much to be explored about the role of visual and material culture in the history of emotions in the late medieval and early modern...

Parution : Angeliki Pollali, Berthold Hub (éd.), « Images of Sex and Desire in Renaissance Art and Modern Historiography », Routledge, 2018.

Studies on gender and sexuality have proliferated in the last decades, covering a wide spectrum of disciplines. This collection of essays offers a metanarrative of sexuality as it has been recently embedded in the art historical discourse of the European Renaissance. It revisits ‘canonical’ forms of visual culture, such as painting, sculpture and a number of emblematic manuscripts. The contributors focus on one image—either actual or thematic—and examine it against its historiographic assumptions. Through the...
