Parution : Michael Zell, « Rembrandt, Vermeer, and the Gift in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Art », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

This book offers a new perspective on the art of the Dutch Golden Age by exploring the interaction between the gift’s symbolic economy of reciprocity and obligation and the artistic culture of early modern Holland. Gifts of art were pervasive in seventeenth-century Europe and many Dutch artists, like their counterparts elsewhere, embraced gift giving to cultivate relations with patrons, art lovers, and other members of their social networks. Rembrandt also created distinctive works to function...

Parution : Katlijne Van der Stighelen, Hans Vlieghe, « Portraits of Unidentified and Newly Identified Sitters Painted in Antwerp. Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard XIX.3 », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

This book, one of four devoted to Rubens’s portraiture, contains a catalogue of all the portraits of unidentified individuals attributed by Ludwig Burchard or by the authors to Rubens and executed in Antwerp. The volume thus complements the catalogue of all the portraits of known persons painted by Rubens in Antwerp, published in the Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard as Part XIX.2 in 1987. A decade earlier the volume on the portraits painted by Rubens outside...

Imaging Utopia: New Perspectives on Northern Renaissance Art Papers Presented at the Twentieth Symposium for the Study of Underdrawing and Technology in Painting held in Mechelen and Leuven, 11-13 January 2017 On the first page of his famous book, Thomas More describes Utopia as a Libellus vere aureas, a little true golden book.

Parution : Karin Leonhard, « The Fertile Ground of Painting. 17th-Century Still Lives and Nature Pieces », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

Still Life painting thematizes the ability of Nature and Art to produce similarities and is therefore predestined for a theorization of mimetic strcutures of Art in general. 17th-Century Netherlandish Still Life painting actively participated in the intellectual discourse of natural philosophy and the natural sciences, even though art history until recently described it, somewhat simplifying, as realistic-representative painting. We urgently need a rehabilitation of the notion of Mimesis. The author restarts the discussion, by putting...

Appel à contribution : « The Envy of some, the Fear of others, and the Wonder of all their Neighbours. Seventeenth-Century Foreign Insights on Dutch Art », Genève, Université de Genève, 17-19 mars 2022, date limite le 15 septembre 2021

In his Observations upon the United Provinces of the Netherlands (1668), William Temple was commenting on the inhabitants that he met in the Dutch Republic during his diplomatic journey of 1668, but might it also reflect foreigners’ views on Dutch art ? During the opening conference of the research project « A Golden Age? Rethinking 17th-century Dutch painting, » funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (University of Geneva) in 2018, we sought to understand under what...

Conférence : Daniela Bleichmar, « The Cabinet and the World. Non-European Objects in Early Modern European Wunderkammern », en ligne, 4 février 2021

Early modern European collectors proclaimed their curiosity cabinets contained « the world. » What do collections from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries reveal about the ways in which those who assembled, owned, and visited them understood objects from other regions and cultures? Inventories, catalogues, and descriptions of European collections from the period reveal that the reception of non-European objects was characterized above all by practices of geographical and cultural indeterminacy, most notably (1) empty attribution, (2) misattribution,...

Exposition : « Sensing the Unseen. Step into Gossaert’s ‘Adoration’ », Londres, National Gallery, 20 décembre 2020-28 février 2021

Take your first step into Jan Gossaert’s world of intricate detail, technical mastery and rich meaning in a new Gallery experience where you’ll be surrounded by the sights and sounds of his 500-year-old masterpiece. In ‘The Adoration of the Kings’, Gossaert has compressed time and space into a richly detailed, imagined setting where some elements of this familiar Christian scene are immediately clear and others are hidden for us to discover: the weave of fabric, Gossaert’s fingerprint in the green glaze where he blotted it with his hand, thistles and dead nettles, hairs sprouting from a wart on a cheek, a tiny pearl, a hidden angel… To help you uncover...

Parution : James Hutson, « Gallucci’s Commentary on Dürer’s ‘Four Books on Human Proportion’: Renaissance Proportion Theory », Open Book Publishers, 2020

In 1591, Giovanni Paolo Gallucci published his Della simmetria dei corpi humani, an Italian translation of Albrecht Dürer’s Four Books on Human Proportion. While Dürer’s treatise had been translated earlier in the sixteenth-century into French and Latin, it was Gallucci’s Italian translation that endured in popularity as the most cited version of the text in later Baroque treatises, covering topics that were seen as central to arts education, connoisseurship, patronage, and the wider appreciation of...
