Parution : R. Noyes (ed.), « Reassessing Epistemic Images in the Early Modern World », Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This edited collection of papers explores from an interdisciplinary perspective the role of images and objects in early modern knowledge-making practices with an emphasis on mapping methodological approaches against printed pictures and things. The volume brings together work across diverse printed images, objects, and materials produced c. 1500-1700, as well as well as works in the ambit of early modern print culture, to reframe a comparative history of the rise of the ‘epistemic imprint’ as...

Exposition : « Before Dürer », Francfort-sur-le-Main, Städel Museum, du 28 septembre 2022 au 22 janvier 2023

In the fifteenth century, even before the invention of letterpress printing with movable type, the first techniques for printing images were developed. The woodcut led the way, with the technically more complex engraving following close on its heels. Emerging around 1430/40 from the gold engraving craft, the engraving not only provided a further method of reproducing religious and secular images, but also offered new artistic possibilities. Early on, for example, the Master E. S. (active...

Exposition : « Fake News & Lying Pictures. Political Prints in the Dutch Republic », Urbana Champaign, Kranner Art Museum, 25 août-17 décembre 2022

Comedians, editorial cartoons, and memes harness the power of satire, parody, and hyperbole to provoke laughter, indignation—even action. These forms of expression are usually traced to eighteenth-century artists, such as William Hogarth, but they are grounded in the unprecedented freedom of artistic expression in the seventeenth-century Dutch Republic. This exhibition explores the myriad and complex visual strategies early modern printmakers in the United Provinces used to memorialize historical events, lionize and demonize domestic and international...

Colloque : “Print and Practice: Spatialising the Early Modern”, Sheffield, Sheffield Centre for Early Modern Studies, le 30 septembre 2022

With funding from the Society for Renaissance Studies and the University of Sheffield’s School of English, the Sheffield Centre for Early Modern Studies is pleased to announce this interdisciplinary colloquium interrogating the theme of space, c.1500-1700. Recent studies on space have allowed researchers to better understand the material and social lives of those underrepresented in the historical record. With a keynote talk, taught practice-led sessions and a roundtable discussion, we hope to generate theoretical insights...

Exposition : “Rhinoceros – a fabulous animal works on paper from three centuries”, Nuremberg, Germanisches Nationalmuseum, du 21 juillet 2022 au 26 juillet 2023

The studio exhibition presents images of the rhinoceros on paper from three centuries. This period saw the transformation from a creature of the imagination to a realistically-depicted animal. In 1500, almost no-one in Europe had ever actually seen a rhinoceros, and the legendary creature was associated with myth and many stories. It was considered wild, dangerous and the elephant’s natural enemy, but also exotically fascinating, testimony to an unknown world. Two images, in particular, were...

Exposition : « The Renaissance in the North: New Prints and Perspectives », Washington, National Gallery of Art, 3 juillet-27 novembre 2022

The region of northern Europe today known as Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands experienced momentous social, political, and artistic transformation from 1450 through the early 1600s, a time now called the Northern Renaissance. Rare prints by Albrecht Dürer, Hendrick Goltzius, and other influential artists are shown alongside engravings, etchings, and woodcuts by other highly talented but less familiar figures, such as Erhard Schön and Jan Sadeler I. This visual feast of works recently added...

Conférence : Leslie Geddes, « Drowning in Print », Rome, Villino Stroganoff, 6 juillet 2022, 15h-17h

Few early modern prints render swimming as a feat of resistance against both water and air; fewer indicate its risks. How to show the calisthenic movement of a figure both within and without the water? How about the resistance of waves to the exertion of a body propelling its own weight through a slick, transparent, heavy medium? Printed lines delineate, but also obfuscate, bodies caught in constant flux between air and water. Immersion in water...

Exposition : “Hans Hoffmann. A European artist of the Renaissance”, Nuremberg, German National Museum, du 12 mai au 8 août 2022

  Nuremberg citizen and European artist: Hans Hoffmann (ca. 1545/50 – 1591/92) is considered one of the leading lights of the “Duerer Renaissance”. His artistic reputation is based on his numerous copies of works by the old master. Imitation was not a practice he alone specialised in, however; rather, it was part of a European art phenomenon which reached its peak in around 1600. In comparing the work of Hoffmann with that of Duerer and...
