Journées d’étude : « Hugo van der Goes », Berlin, Gemäldegalerie, 14-15 juillet 2023

Hugo van der Goes (c. 1440-1482/83) was one of the most important European painters of the early modern period. His monumental, emotionally expressive, yet also intimate depictions are among the highlights of their respective collections. Yet unlike most other great artists of his era, no mnographic exhibition has ever been dedicated to this Flemish master. The Berlin Gemäldegalerie has now brought together the majority of his surviving works for the first time. To mark the...

Journée d’étude : « Italy and the Low Countries – Artistic Relations. The Sixteenth Century », Utrecht, Museum Catharijneconvent, 31 mars 2023

International conference organised by Gert Jan van der Sman (NIKI, Florence). At the beginning of the sixteenth century the visual arts in the Low Countries entered a period of transition due to the progressive assimilation of Italian styles. Furthermore, an increasing number of artists undertook a voyage to Italy to enrich their cultural baggage and improve their skills. This conference seeks to address often overlooked aspects of the artistic exchange between Italy and the Netherlands...

Parution : E. Toreno, « Netherlandish and Italian Female Portraiture in the Fifteenth Century. Gender, Identity, and the Tradition of Power », Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book investigates the aesthetic and conceptual characteristics of fifteenth-century female portraiture on panel. Portraits of women increased substantially during this century. They formed part of a material and a visual culture borne out of the rapid rise of an oligarchy from entrepreneurial activities that was especially advanced in the urbanised territories of Italy and Flanders. For this reason, the portraits in this book are by Netherlandish and Italian painters. They are simultaneously illustrative of...

Parution : Miyako Sugiyama, « Images and Indulgences in Early Netherlandish Painting », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

This book demonstrates the relationships between images and indulgences in fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century Netherlandish art. In the Roman Catholic Church, indulgences served as a way to reduce temporal punishment in purgatory for one’s sins. Indulgences could be obtained by reciting prayers and performing devotional practices. Penitents could earn this type of devotional indulgence with the aid of paintings and other artifacts that possessed theological, historical, and aesthetic values as well as performative and promissory...

Parution : David García Cueto, Eduardo Lamas (dir.), « Copies of Flemish Masters in the Hispanic World (1500-1700). Flandes by Substitution », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

The artistic heritage of the regions that once formed part of the former Spanish Empire includes a large number of painted copies after Flemish masters made during the sixteenth and the seventeenth centuries. Most of these works have received little attention, even though they constitute a valuable source for understanding the artistic influence of the Southern Netherlands on Spanish and Latin American art and society in this period. Indeed, the study of copies of Flemish...

Parution : Lizet Klaassen (dir.), « Harmony in Bright Colors. Memling’s God the Father with Singing and Music-Making Angels Restored », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Hans Memling’s God the Father with Singing and Music-making Angels formed the upper register of an enormous polyptych painted for the Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria la Real in Nájera, Spain. The three large panel paintings are undoubtedly among the most monumental works of early Netherlandish painting. Since 1895 they have belonged to the collection of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA), where a team of conservators and scholars have devoted themselves in...

Parution : J. Vanessa Lyon, « Figuring Faith and Female Power in the Art of Rubens », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Figuring Faith and Female Power in the Art of Rubens argues that the Baroque painter, propagandist, and diplomat, Peter Paul Rubens, was not only aware of rapidly shifting religious and cultural attitudes toward women, but actively engaged in shaping them. Today, Rubens’s paintings continue to be used — and abused — to prescribe and proscribe certain forms of femininity. Repositioning some of the artist’s best-known works within seventeenth-century Catholic theology and female court culture, this book...
