Parution : Matthias Wivel, « Sebastiano del Piombo and Michelangelo: The Compass and the Mirror », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

The collaboration between Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) and Sebastiano del Piombo (1485-1547), is among the most extraordinary artistic partnerships of the early modern period. It produced works of startling originality, crucial to the development of the so-called High Renaissance in the first decades of the sixteenth century. It was arguably Michelangelos most creative collaboration, helping him refine motifs and narrative strategies, and it proved determining for Sebastianos development of a monumental, spiritually invested idiom whose influence...

Parution : Barbara Baert, « The Gaze from Above. Reflections on Cosmic Eyes in Visual Culture », Leuven-Walpole, Peeters Publishers, 2021

When gazing into the vast expanse of ‘the universe’, humankind experiences the universal desire to fathom the mystery of its creation. We utilize our unique ability to express ourselves through artistic means to make this mystery tangible, transmuting the secrets of the cosmos into stunning objects and ingenious symbols. Through a deep engagement with recent iconological methods the author travels up and down a methodological Jacob’s ladder, between the artist’s gazes from the earth to...

Appel à contribution : Aerial Perspective in Early Modern Europe, RSA, Dublin, du 30 mars au 2 avril 2022, date limite le 20 juillet 2021

The term aerial perspective is widely used but rarely studied outside the work of a few artists, such as Jan van Eyck, Leonardo da Vinci, and Poussin. Though most often associated with the representation of great distances, aerial perspective can also be said to involve strategies for differentiating shorter distances such as foreground and middle ground. Such strategies might include techniques such as schiacciato relief, engraving and etching, the study of optical treatises to better...

Appel à communication : « Framing the multimodality of early modern images : agency, performance and medialogy to study artefacts », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 27 juillet 2021

Understanding paintings and sculptures as a « dispositif » (De Certeau, Agamben) has become a new research approach in the Humanities in recent years. Visual anthropology  and cognition are nowadays commonly used to explore how early modern images work within a process of production, mediation and reception (Freedberg & Gallese ; Belting). However, Visual semiology, Information and Communication Sciences are yet to be invested in a fruitful medialogy that could provide a bridge between disciplines. Studying interpersonal and...

Parution : Nicola Suthor, « Bravura: Virtuosity and Ambition in Early Modern European Painting », Princeton University Press, 2021

The painterly style known as bravura emerged in sixteenth-century Venice and spread throughout Europe during the seventeenth century. While earlier artistic movements presented a polished image of the artist by downplaying the creative process, bravura celebrated a painter’s distinct materials, virtuosic execution, and theatrical showmanship. This resulted in the further development of innovative techniques and a popular understanding of the artist as a weapon-wielding acrobat, impetuous wunderkind, and daring rebel. In Bravura, Nicola Suthor offers...

Conférence : Sophie Caron, Elliot Adam, « La Maison Changenet. Une famille de peintres entre Provence et Bourgogne vers 1500 », Paris, Auditorium du Louvre, 21 juin 2021

Le département des Peintures est heureux de présenter une acquisition récente, à laquelle une spectaculaire restauration vient de rendre tout son éclat : l’Assomption, avec Saint Yves au revers, est un panneau de noyer provenant d’un retable peint en Provence à la fin du XVe siècle. Il fut sans doute réalisé dans l’atelier de Josse Lieferinxe, célèbre peintre flamand actif alors en Provence. Lieferinxe est le gendre d’un autre grand peintre, Jean Changenet, issu d’une dynastie...

Parution : Bryan C. Keene (dir.), « New Horizons in Trecento Italian Art », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

The fourteenth century in Italy, the age of Giotto, Dante, and Boccaccio, widely known as the trecento, was a pivotal moment in art history and in European culture. The studies in this volume present new approaches to art in this important but often neglected period of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Scholars at various stages in their careers discuss a wide range of topics including architecture, cultural exchange, materiality, politics, patronage, and devotion,...

Parution : Frédéric Cousinié (dir.), « Du corpus à l’exégèse. Interpréter la peinture du XVIIe siècle en France », Rouen, PURH, 2020

Qu’est-ce qu’ « interpréter » un tableau ? Faut-­il privilégier le s intentions déclarées ou implicites de l’artiste et des commandi­taires ? En rester aux interprétations historiques, contempo­raines de l’œuvre ? Ou accueillir les réceptions postérieures ? Que faut-­il interpréter ? La composition, ses figures, l’histoire et la narration déployée, les motifs et les thèmes ? Et comment prendre en compte les œuvres «sans histoire »? Les matériaux, pigments, grains, touches et l’ensemble des formes...

Parution : Jill Pederson, « Leonardo, Bramante, and the Academia. Art and Friendship in Fifteenth-Century Milan », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

This book is the first study to provide a comprehensive historical and theoretical account of the Academia Leonardi Vinci. Pederson brings together literary sources to offer a new interpretation of the academy not as one singular entity, but as a collection of academic modalities in Renaissance Milan. Eventually these various modalities converged around their namesake Leonardo da Vinci, as well as the architect Donato Bramante. This group drew together not only humanists, as in other...
