Conférence : Jonathan Nelson, « Filippino Lippi: an Abundance of Invention », Londres/en ligne, Warburg Institute, 2 mai 2024

Renaissance Lives – Filippino Lippi: an Abundance of Invention Jonathan Nelson in conversation with Caspar Pearson (Warburg Institute) The first monograph in a generation, and the first study in English in over eighty years, this book presents a new understanding of the Renaissance master-artist Filippino Lippi.

Conférence : Patricia Rubin, « Titian and the ‘Ethiop’s Ear’ », Florence, I Tatti, 22 février 2024

Thursday, February 22, 2024, 6:00pm to 7:30pm Speaker: Patricia Rubin (Institute of Fine Arts, New York) With a small, but significant or rather signifying detail – pink earrings – Titian colour-coded the Africans in his paintings.

Occurring in different pictorial genres (portraits, poesie, and religious paintings), Titian’s Africans play different roles and have different subject positions. In...

Parution : Claudia Daniotti, « Reinventing Alexander. Myth, Legend, History in Renaissance Italian Art », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

In this book Claudia Daniotti provides the first comprehensive study of the representation of Alexander the Great in Renaissance Italian art, exploring a fundamental turning point in the tradition: the transition from the medieval imagery of Alexander as a legendary, fairy-tale hero to the new historically grounded portrait of him as an example of moral virtue and military prowess.

Parution : Inge Reist, “When Michelangelo Was Modern”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

Through case studies of collectors, patrons, and agents who redefined collecting and the art market, this volume illuminates how the changing status of the artist, rise of connoisseurship, role of intermediaries and new patterns of consumption established models for collecting and display that resemble those still practiced today. The book presents new research by recognized scholars who examine the motivations of collectors and agents, emphasizing how their collecting, patronage and advocacy could require support of...

Appel à contribution : « Copying and Imitation in Early Modern Architecture », Bruxelles/Gand, UCLouvain et UGent, Juin 2023, date limite le 15 juillet 2022

Organizers Nele De Raedt, Elizabeth Merrill Concept This research project takes as its premise the notion that practices of imitation and direct copying were integral to architectural design and production in early modern Europe. Architectural theory of the time posited that architecture was an art in constant evolution based on the practice of imitation. In such theories, the imitation of models, in order to create new designs, necessarily included an element of invention, which allowed...
