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.

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

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 : 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...
