Conférence : Adriana Concin, « Florence and the Holy Roman Empire in the Sixteenth Century : Material Culture and Artistic Exchange », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 17 janvier 2022, 17h-18h30

During the second half of the sixteenth century, Florentine artistic production and access to it became increasingly sought after across the Holy Roman Empire. An important dynastic connection between the Austrian Habsburg dynasty and the Medici family in 1565 was the marriage of Archduchess Johanna of Austria (1547–1578) to Francesco I de’ Medici (1541–1587). This was a catalytic event that brought the German-speaking dominions of Central Europe into close contact with Florence, its court and...

Parution : K. Botke, H. T. van Veen, « A Cultural Symbiosis. Patrician Art Patronage and Medicean Cultural Politics in Florence (1530-1610) », Leuven University Press, 2021

The prolonged influence of patricians on the cultural and artistic life in Florence. Contrary to general belief, the history of the Florentine patriciate did not end with the establishment of the State of Tuscany under de’ Medici in 1532. Proud and self-confident patricians did not become subservient courtiers overnight, but remained significantly influential for a long period. They retained their urban identity and longstanding family traditions, while acquiring noble titles, estates, and villas at the...

Conférence : Antonio Geremicca, “Le temps revient. Raphaël, l’art antique et les grandes découvertes archéologiques de la Renaissance”, Liège, 22 novembre, 18h30

La devise « Le temps revient » des Médicis exprime la volonté de voir advenir un nouvel Âge d’or basé sur les valeurs socio-culturelles de l’Antiquité. À l’époque, la connaissance du monde gréco-romain se faisait plus concrète à mesure que se multipliaient les découvertes archéologiques, la plus fameuse étant l’exhumation du Laocoon en 1506. Raphaël sut exploiter le potentiel visuel des vestiges antiques, qu’ils fussent figurés ou monumentaux. Cette conférence permettra de comprendre comment il...

Exposition : The Medici : Portraits and Politics, 1512-1570, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, jusqu’au 11 octobre 2021

Some of the greatest portraits of Western art were painted in Florence during the tumultuous years from 1512 to 1570, when the city was transformed from a republic with elected officials into a duchy ruled by the Medici family. The key figure in this transformation was Cosimo I de’ Medici, who became Duke of Florence in 1537, following the assassination of his predecessor, Alessandro de’ Medici. Cosimo shrewdly employed culture as a political tool in...

Parution : Allie Terry-Fritsch, Somaesthetic Experience and the Viewer in Medicean Florence, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Somaesthetic Experience and the Viewer in Medicean Florence. Renaissance Art and Political Persuasion, 1459-1580 Viewers in the Middle Ages and Renaissance were encouraged to forge connections between their physical and affective states when they experienced works of art. They believed that their bodies served a critical function in coming to know and make sense of the world around them, and intimately engaged themselves with works of art and architecture on a daily basis. This book examines...

Parution : S. Solum, Women, Patronage, and Salvation in Renaissance Florence. Lucrezia Tornabuoni and the Chapel of the Medici Palace, Routledge, 2020

Long obfuscated by modern definitions of historical evidence and art patronage, Lucrezia Tornabuoni de’ Medici’s impact on the visual world of her time comes to light in this book, the first full-length scholarly argument for a lay woman’s contributions to the visual arts of fifteenth-century Florence. This focused investigation of the Medici family’s domestic altarpiece, Filippo Lippi’s Adoration of the Christ Child, is broad in its ramifications. Mapping out the cultural network of gender, piety,...

Parution : Francesco Freddolini et Marco Musillo, Art, Mobility, and Exchange in Early Modern Tuscany and Eurasia, Londres, Routledge, 2020

This book explores how the Medici Grand Dukes pursued ways to expand their political, commercial, and cultural networks beyond Europe, cultivating complex relations with the Ottoman Empire and other Islamicate regions, and looking further east to India, China, and Japan. The chapters in this volume discuss how casting a global, cross-cultural net was part and parcel of the Medicean political vision. Diplomatic gifts, items of commercial exchange, objects looted at war, maritime connections, and political...

Parution : Carla d’Arista, The Pucci of Florence: Patronage and Politics in Renaissance Italy, Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

The story of the Pucci family, great patrons of Renaissance art and architecture. Shrewd and ruthless, the Pucci were Medici loyalists whose political and cultural alignment with the most powerful family in Renaissance Florence was rewarded with wealth and influence. The Pucci’s martial support for the Medici in the dangerous business of ruling Tuscany drove their transformation from a clan of minor guildsmen to a noble dynasty with three cardinals to its name. Over the next...
