La mostra “Moroni (1521-1580). Il ritratto del suo tempo” intende celebrare l’artista bergamasco, tra i maggiori interpreti della pittura rinascimentale lombarda. Autore anche di significative opere devozionali, presenti in mostra, Moroni è però noto soprattutto per la sua innovativa attività di ritrattista.  Molti i ritratti realizzati dall’artista qui esposti definiti ritratti “in azione”, moderne raffigurazioni di personaggi che, attraverso un gesto, uno sguardo, entrano in contatto con lo spettatore superando la lontananza emotiva e la...

Parution : Roy Strong, “The Stuart Image English Portraiture 1603 to 1649”, Martlesham, Boydell & Brewer, 2023

Sir Roy Strong has been writing for over half a century on the painters of the courts of James I and Charles I. While taking account of the mass of scholarly work that has appeared during that time, this book offers a very...

Parution : Lucia Tantardini and Rebecca Norris (eds), “Grotesque and Caricature”, Leyde, Brill, 2023

Grotesque and Caricature: Leonardo to Bernini examines these two genres across Renaissance and Early Modern Italy. Although their origins stem from Antiquity, it were Leonardo da Vinci’s early teste caricate that injected fresh life into the tradition, greatly inspiring generations of artists. Critical among them were his Milanese followers, such as Giovanni Paolo Lomazzo, and also Michelangelo and Sebastiano del Piombo as well as, notably, Annibale Carracci, Guercino, and Bernini among others. Their artistic production—drawings, prints,...

Conférence : Recensement de la peinture en France au XVIe siècle. La peinture à Paris le portrait “provincial”, le 24 novembre 2023, INHA, Salle Vasari, de 18h à 19h30

Cette rencontre coïncidera avec la mise en ligne d’une nouvelle tranche du « Recensement de la peinture en France au XVIe siècle ». Le propos portera d’une part sur la peinture parisienne et la première école de Fontainebleau, et d’autre part sur le portrait « provincial ». La dénomination d’« école de Fontainebleau » permet de distinguer les œuvres d’un anonymat plus général, en les rattachant à la tendance dominante de l’art de cour, qui...

Parution : Adam Jasienski, “Praying to Portraits. Audience, Identity, and the Inquisition in the Early Modern Hispanic World”, University Park, Penn State University Press, 2023

In Praying to Portraits, art historian Adam Jasienski examines the history, meaning, and cultural significance of a crucial image type in the early modern Hispanic world: the sacred portrait. Across early modern Spain and Latin America, people prayed to portraits. They prayed to “true” effigies of saints, to simple portraits that were repainted as devotional objects, and even to images of living sitters depicted as holy figures. Jasienski places these difficult-to-classify image types within their historical context....

Parution : Bernocchi, Morelli et Pich (dir.), “Petrarch and Sixteenth-Century Italian Portraiture”, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2023

The volume presents a wide-ranging investigation of the ways in which Petrarch’s legacy informed the relationship between visual and literary portraits in sixteenth-century Italy. Petrarch’s vast literary production influenced the intellectual framework in which new models of representation and self-representation developed during the Renaissance. His two sonnets on Laura’s portrait by Simone Martini and his ambivalent fascination with the illusionary power of portraiture in his Latin texts — such as the Secretum, the Familiares and...

Conférence : Jeanette Kohl, Laura / Aura. Tête-à-tête mit einer Renaissancebüste, Kunsthistorisches Institut der Freien Universität Berlin, 25 avril 2023

Einführung und Moderation: Prof. Dr. Karin Gludovatz (Freie Universität Berlin) Grußwort: Prof. Dr. Bernhard Huss (Direktor des Italienzentrums der Freien Universität Berlin) Der Vortrag widmet sich dem Versuch einer „Phänomenologie“ weiblicher Büstenporträts des Quattrocento. Im Zentrum steht dabei die enigmatische Büste einer Unbekannten von Francesco Laurana in der Wiener Kunstkammer, die sich durch ihre ungewöhnliche Polychromierung auszeichnet.

Conférence : Adam Jasienski, « Critics from Hell. Evaluating the Truth of True Portraits in Early Modern Spain », Florence, Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut, 20 février 2023

This talk analyzes the roles of portraiture in three sixteenth- and seventeenth-century religious cults: of the recently-deceased Ignatius of Loyola and Teresa of Ávila, whose appearance was known from portraits and descriptions, and long-deceased Saint Benedict. Institutional patrons insisted on producing increasingly portrait-like images of saints for whom there survived few or no reliable portrait likenesses, like the medieval saint Benedict. I analyze a case in which a group of nuns claimed that they had...
