Parution : Francesco Caglioti (ed), “Donatello: The Renaissance”, Venise, Marsilio, 2022

  A beautiful appraisal of the Renaissance sculptor’s achievements, contextualized with works by his contemporaries. The first thorough overview of the artist in many years, Donatello: The Renaissance reconstructs the outstanding career of one of the greatest sculptors in Western art. Famed for his incredibly sensual sculpture of David—the first freestanding nude male sculpture since antiquity—Donatello (c. 1386–1466) also made reliefs, but was best known for statues in the round. Accompanying a truly historic exhibition...

Conférence : Francesco Caglioti, « L’exposition Donatello à Florence », Paris, Auditorium du Louvre, 25 mai 2022, 12h30

L’exposition Donatello, la Renaissance actuellement en cours à Florence (Palazzo Strozzi et musée National du Bargello) vise à représenter la centralité absolue de Donatello (v. 1386 – 1466) dans l’histoire de la Renaissance italienne (15e et 16e siècles), mais aussi son rôle révolutionnaire dans l’histoire de l’art européen. Sculpteur au talent sans bornes, et versé dans toutes les matières et techniques, Donatello sentit dès son plus jeune âge les limites représentatives, expressives et narratives de la sculpture...

Exposition : “Michelangelo: l’effigie in bronzo di Daniele da Volterra”, Florence, Galleria dell’Accademia di Firenze, du 15 février au 19 juin 2022

Michelangelo: l’effigie in bronzo di Daniele da Volterra, a cura di Cecilie Hollberg, è una mostra studio unica e inconsueta che parte da un discorso fatto di quesiti ancora aperti per arrivare a soluzioni nuove con metodi innovativi. È la prima volta che vengono riuniti questi nove busti simili, alcuni apparentemente quasi uguali, che riportano i tratti di Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 – 1564). Proprio quell’effigie che tutti noi siamo abituati a collegare con l’incomparabile artista...

Parution : Anne Lepoittevin, Emmanuel Lurin, Alain Mérot (dir.), « Florence, ville d’art et les Français. La création d’un mythe », Rome, Campisano, 2022

Cet ouvrage s’intéresse au rôle des Français dans la construction d’un mythe de Florence comme « ville d’art » à travers l’histoire, la littérature et les diverses formes de production artistique. À Florence, plus que partout ailleurs en Italie, la beauté de la ville, le paysage urbain, les grands artistes et leurs chefs-d’oeuvre ont fait l’objet d’un véritable processus de mythification culturelle à partir du XIX e siècle. Florence apparaît ainsi dans la culture française...

Conférence : Adriana Concin, « Florence and the Holy Roman Empire in the Sixteenth Century : Material Culture and Artistic Exchange », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 17 janvier 2022, 17h-18h30

During the second half of the sixteenth century, Florentine artistic production and access to it became increasingly sought after across the Holy Roman Empire. An important dynastic connection between the Austrian Habsburg dynasty and the Medici family in 1565 was the marriage of Archduchess Johanna of Austria (1547–1578) to Francesco I de’ Medici (1541–1587). This was a catalytic event that brought the German-speaking dominions of Central Europe into close contact with Florence, its court and...

Parution : K. Botke, H. T. van Veen, « A Cultural Symbiosis. Patrician Art Patronage and Medicean Cultural Politics in Florence (1530-1610) », Leuven University Press, 2021

The prolonged influence of patricians on the cultural and artistic life in Florence. Contrary to general belief, the history of the Florentine patriciate did not end with the establishment of the State of Tuscany under de’ Medici in 1532. Proud and self-confident patricians did not become subservient courtiers overnight, but remained significantly influential for a long period. They retained their urban identity and longstanding family traditions, while acquiring noble titles, estates, and villas at the...

Parution : Timothy Verdon, « Fra Angelico. Painter, Friar, Mystic », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

A lavishly illustrated exploration of the art and theology of Fra Angelico. Fra Angelico offers a unique encounter with the celebrated painter, seen through the eyes of Monsignor Timothy Verdon.  As an art historian and (like Angelico) a Catholic priest, Monsignor Verdon approaches the work of the only artist ever beatified through the theological lens it deserves, bringing together Fra Angelico’s art and his faith. Praised by his contemporaries, by later art historians, and by generations...
