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.

For this reason, the portraits in this book are by Netherlandish and Italian painters. They are simultaneously illustrative of...

Limoges enamel pieces created by Susanne de Court and embroideries fabricated by Katharina Rozee were highly sought after by collectors throughout Europe. Recent exhibitions and publications highlight...

Séminaire de Questes Le modèle traditionnel insistant sur l’oppression du corps féminin a été largement enrichi par les recherches récentes. Des cas d’étude ont en effet montré que le corps de la femme médiévale se pense désormais de manière plurielle.

Ainsi, les recherches actuelles sur...
