Parution : Meredith K. Ray et Lynn Lara Westwater (dir.), “Gendering the Renaissance Text and Context in Early Modern Italy”, Harrogate, Combined Academic Publishers, 2023

The essays in this volume revisit the Italian Renaissance to rethink spaces thought to be defined and certain: from the social spaces of convent, court, or home, to the literary spaces of established genres such as religious plays or epic poetry. Repopulating these spaces with the women who occupied them but have often been elided in the historical record, the essays also remind us to ask what might obscure our view of texts and archives,...

Exposition : « Muse or Maestra ? Women in the Italian Art World, 1400–1800 », Berlin, Kupferstichkabinett, 8 mars-4 juin 2023

Featuring some 90 works, the special exhibition organised by Berlin’s Kupferstichkabinett elucidates the lives and impact of women such as Rosalba Carriera, Artemisia Gentileschi, Elisabetta Sirani, Diana Scultori, Isabella d’Este, Christina, Queen of Sweden, and others. Their works, fates and enormous influence on the art world of their times have in part been forgotten today. During the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the art of these women outshone that of their fathers, brothers and husbands. They...

Appel à contribution : « En femenino. Arte y mujeres en la Edad Media », Madrid, 19-20 octobre 2023, date limite le 30 avril 2023

Depuis quelques décennies, les références à la participation des femmes dans les processus artistiques médiévaux ont cessé d’être l’histoire d’une absence. De même, les études sur l’iconographie féminine médiévale ont transcendé la simple représentation des femmes en tant qu’épouses, mères, amantes, pécheresses et inductrices de péchés, ou religieuses. Tout au long du Moyen Âge, les femmes ont projeté, apprécié et créé de l’art, cela ne fait aucun doute. Un nombre croissant d’œuvres se concentrent sur...

Appel à contribution : « Visual and Material Cultures of Female Sanctity », Bamberg, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, 13-14 juillet 2023, date limite le 28 février 2023

Two- and three-dimensional images of female saints are highly complex religious objects. They depict the saints in a wide variety of material and performative settings in which the women are richly gifted and preciously adorned. During their object history, these images have been subjected to repeated changes by multiple actors. Their formation as artefacts is inextricably linked to the developments of the cult of the saints as a social phenomenon (Peter Brown). In sophisticated ways,...

Parution : Cordelia Warr, « Stigmatics and Visual Culture in Late Medieval and Early Modern Italy », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book places the discourse surrounding stigmata within the visual culture of the late medieval and early modern periods, with a particular focus on Italy and on female stigmatics. Echoing, and to a certain extent recreating, the wounds and pain inflicted on Christ during his passion, stigmata stimulated controversy. Related to this were issues that were deeply rooted in contemporary visual culture such as how stigmata were described and performed and whether, or how, it...

Parution : Sarah A. Bendall, “Shaping Femininity: Foundation Garments, the Body & Women in Early Modern England”, Londres, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2022

In sixteenth and seventeenth-century England, the female silhouette underwent a dramatic change. This very structured form, created using garments called bodies and farthingales, existed in various extremes in Western Europe and beyond, in the form of stays, corsets, hoop petticoats and crinolines, right up until the twentieth century. With a nuanced approach that incorporates a stunning array of visual and written sources and drawing on transdisciplinary methodologies, Shaping Femininity explores the relationship between material culture...

Parution : Michele Savonarola, “A Mother’s Manual for the Women of Ferrara”, Chicago, Chicago University Press, 2022

The first treatise of its kind to be written in a European vernacular. Around 1460, Michele Savonarola produced the extraordinary Mother’s Manual for the Women of Ferrara, a gynecological, obstetrical, and pediatric treatise composed in the vernacular so that it could be read not only by the learned but also by pregnant and nursing mothers and the midwives and wet nurses who presided over childbirth. Savonarola’s work is not merely a trivial set of instructions, but...

Exposition : “Titian and the female image: beauty, love, poetry”, Milan, Palazzo Reale, 23 février-5 juin 2022

This exhibition focuses on the women painted by Titian and his contemporaries: their beauty, elegance, sensuality and the particular status that their representation acquired in Venetian society at that time. (Sylvia Ferino) In sixteenth-century Venice, the female image acquired unprecedented importance in the history of painting. To celebrate this theme, Palazzo Reale opens its 2022 programme with the “Tiziano e l’immagine della donna” (Titian’s Vision of Women) exhibition. From February 23rd to June 5th, 2022...

Parution : Sylvia Ferino-Pagden, “Titian’s Vision of Women”, Skira, Lausanne, 2022

How the culture of Renaissance Venice shaped Titian’s timeless paintings of women A new ideal of feminine beauty arose in 16th-century Venice, as women acquired new rights of inheritance and more social power. As a result, through the writings of poets and humanists, the construction of the desired, beloved woman began to acquire civic significance. The crucial impetus for the visual realization of this ideal came from Venice’s greatest artist: Titian. For him, artistic beauty...
