Appel à contribution : « The Space Between Non-Arts and Fine Arts: Confronting Gender and the Decorative Arts, 1500–1800 », Birmingham, 14-17 avril 2021, date limite le 19 octobre 2020

The decorative arts are not easily defined and have long occupied the shifting space between the non-arts and the fine arts. During the early modern period, prominent women, such as Catherine de’ Medici and Amalia van Solms-Braunfels, were at the forefront of amassing impressive collections of decorative objects. 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...

Conférence en ligne : Inge Reist, « Shaping the Splendor of Italian Renaissance Art through Collecting and Patronage », 23 juillet à 18h30 (BST)

For most of us, art patronage and collecting during the Renaissance and Baroque periods is thought to have been the almost exclusive province of princes, popes, and prelates. But in reality the personalities who shaped the art collecting landscape of the late 15th 16th and 17th centuries were remarkably varied, representing a broad range of interests and professions that included connoisseurs and middlemen from all walks of life and social strata. This lecture will introduce some of the...

Parution : Gaylord Brouhot (dir.), Luisa Capodieci (dir.), « Il sogno d’arte de François Ier. L’Italie à la cour de France », Rome, L’Erma di Bretschneider, 2019

François Ier (1494-1547) a fait épanouir en France un style artistique inédit. Sa plus grande victoire dans le domaine des arts a été d’avoir attiré Leonardo da Vinci à sa cour et d’avoir ouvert les portes de son royaume aux nouveautés venant d’Italie. Rosso Fiorentino, Benvenuto Cellini et Primaticcio comptent parmi les artistes qui se mirent à son service, tandis que des agents sans scrupules sont chargés de chercher dans la Péninsule des oeuvres d’art...

L’histoire religieuse de la Renaissance bénéficie d’un engouement incontestable parmi les historiens de ces dernières décennies, qui disposent de sources documentaires variées pour leurs travaux.

Si les édits de pacification promulgués par les souverains et les délibérations...

Colloque : « The Power of Arts, The Power of Fame: The Extraordinary Renaissance Court of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, Lord of Rimini », UCLA, J. Paul Getty Museum, 26-27 janvier 2018

Although not as well-known as other prominent families such as the Medici, Visconti, or Borgia, the Malatesta of Rimini, especially during the leadership of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta (1417-1468), occupy a central position in the history of the Italian Renaissance. Gifted with great military skill and a profound sensibility for the arts, the “wolf of Rimini” became the epitome of the “man” of the Renaissance. The great Swiss historian Jakob Burckhardt, in his influential The Civilization...
