Appel à communication : « Facciati Dipinti e Parlante: New Investigations of the Frescoed Façade in Italy », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 1er août 2021

Though its remains are vanishing rapidly, the frescoed façade tradition of the Italian peninsula has enjoyed a recent resurgence in interest among scholars for the variety and ingenuity these painted faces revealed. From desires to root structures in antiquity to simply dressing one’s dwelling to make a humble space more imposing or on trend, these facades tell their own stories of artistic innovation, symbolic meaning, and visual presence among the bustling streets of many Italian...

Parution : Anne Derbes, Ritual, Gender, and Narrative in Late Medieval Italy, Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

This volume is the first English-language study of the baptistery of Padua and its extraordinarily rich fresco program, commissioned by a woman, Fina Buzzacarini, in the 1370s.  She had the sacred space reshaped into a family mausoleum, though it continued to function as the town’s baptistery.  This study uses close visual analysis to argue that the frescoes, painted by Giusto de’ Menabuoi, dovetail with the interests of Fina Buzzacarini and at the same time participate...

Appel à communication : “A Fresh Look at Fresco in Venice”, Dublin, RSA 2021, date limite le 10 août 2020

Since the sixteenth century the place of Venetian painting within the history and theory of art has been inextricably linked with the use of oil paint on canvas. Yet the city was once renowned for its frescoes too. Noting that the palaces along the Grand Canal were all painted, the French envoy Philippe de Commynes, visiting in 1495, deemed it the “most beautiful street in the entire world.” Francisco de Hollanda (1548) described the entire...

Appel à communication : « Aiutando l’arte. Les inscriptions dans les décors tridentins d’Italie », Paris, INHA, date limite le 15 mars 2018

Appel à communication : « Aiutando l’arte. Les inscriptions dans les décors tridentins d’Italie » (journée d’étude, Paris, INHA, 5 octobre 2018) « Aiutando l’arte con le parole per esprimere suo concetto » : l’ambivalence de la théorie artistique du Cinquecento devant les inscriptions pourrait être résumée par cette formule de Giorgio Vasari, qui sanctionne ailleurs le recours aux phylactères comme une « goffaria » et un défaut de virtuosité. Le refus de faire place...

Conférence : « Michelangelo and the Life and Death of Adam and Eve », UCLA Royce Hall Room 306, Los Angeles, 20 Fév 2018, 12.00-13.00

In this talk, Herbert Morris (Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Law Emeritus, UCLA) analyzes Michelangelo’s treatment of Adam and Eve in three panels of the Sistine Ceiling devoted to their creation, temptation, and expulsion. Delving into topics that have been minimally attended to in the critical literature or not at all, this talk examines aspects of the paintings in which Michelangelo departs from the text of Genesis, such as the nakedness of Adam and Eve in...

Colloque : « Bodies and Maps : Personification of the Continents », Los Angeles, UCLA Royce Hall Room 314, 12-13 janvier 2018

Personifications of the continents of Europe, Africa, Asia, and America abounded in Renaissance and Early Modern Europe. The continents, depicted as female (and sometimes male) figures, appeared in political processions, court performances, ceiling and wall frescos, maps, atlases, frontispieces, poems, travelogues, costume books, prints, paintings, textiles, ceramics, sculptures, wood pulpits, and sculptured tympanums. While the rise in the popularity of these images in the early modern period may well have been related to encounters in...

Colloque : Pise de la Grande peste à la conquête florentine (1348-1406). Nouvelles orientations pour l’histoire d’une société en crise Université de Pise (ITA) 10 avril 2015   La Grande peste est sans conteste l’une des catastrophes les plus profondes qu’aient dû subir les sociétés urbaines au Moyen Âge. On en mesure mal, encore aujourd’hui, les conséquences, notamment du fait des retours de peste, qui achèvent, dans les décennies suivantes, de briser les équilibres démographiques...
