Exposition : « Versos. The Hidden Side », Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado, 7 novembre 2023-3 mars 2024

The B-side of the pictorial support, whether panel, fabric, metal or stone, is a private, intimate space. In the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance the functions of some types of paintings entailed their transport and handling, as a consequence of which they became three-dimensional and object-like, as seen in various examples in the exhibition. However, the vast majority of paintings produced at that date and particularly in subsequent periods were hung on the wall....

Exposition : « Raffael. Silk and Gold », Vienne, Kunsthistorisches Museum, 26 septembre 2023-14 janvier 2024

In the autumn of 2023, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna showcases a medium that played a central role in the public celebrations of princely power and magnificence during the Renaissance : monumental tapestries. The most exquisite products fashioned from delicate silks and precious metal threads were produced in Brussels, including the series of tapestries depicting the story of the Apostles, commissioned by Pope Leo X (1475-1521) for the Sistine Chapel in Rome. The cartoons, which led...

Journées d’étude : « Sacred Drama. Art, Devotion and Performance », en ligne et sur place, St Andrews, University of St Andrews, 11-12 mai 2023

This interdisciplinary conference will bring together scholars from nine countries, from fields including history, art history, architectural history, theatre history, music, theology/religious studies, and literature, with two main objectives: The first is to consider an inclusive definition of ‘sacred drama’ that refers not only to religious theatre, as traditionally understood, but includes rituals and various forms of devotional practice, as well as engagement with sacred images, objects and spaces. What are the elements of this...

Appel à contribution : « Institutional Health. Practice and Metaphor in Early Modern Spaces », date limite le 31 mars 2023

We invite contributions to a volume examining the ways in which health shaped institutional spaces and practices in the early modern world from 1400-1800. In the scope of this volume, we consider institutional “health” metaphorically, as in the stability of the body politic, as well as physically, in terms of both individuals and spaces. While such a topic necessarily confronts painful histories of institutionalization, our goal is to expand beyond discourses centered on the top-down...

Journées d’étude : « Know your place. (Re)Constructing Spaces in Premodern Visual Cultures », Bâle, University of Basel, 9-11 mars 2023

Visual means construct spaces by defining their character and purpose, and dictating human behaviours within them. Medieval monuments such as choir screens or market crosses divided ecclesiastic interiors and juridical topographies, and denoted hierarchies. Wall paintings shaped domestic environments in ancient Roman houses, formed inter-medial dialogues by alluding to textile hangings in pre-modern Central Asian residences, and established idealised ancestor identities in ancient Egyptian tombs. Yet the study of these examples – as well as...

Giotto, tête d'un moine visionnaire

Parution : « Mystique, langage, image : montrer l’invisible », Reichert Verlag, Wiesbaden, 2022

The experience of transcendence, especially when it concerns the direct encounter with God, exceeds every human possibility of expression. Only pictorial expression is able to make visible, at least approximately, what is invisible to the human eye and the human imagination. This volume deals with a whole range of such forms of expression, with contributions from the history of art and literature as well as music and history.   SOMMAIRE René Wetzel (Genève) – Vorwort...
