Parution : Adam Eaker, “Van Dyck and the Making of English Portraiture”, New Haven, Yale University Press, 2022

    A new account of painting in early modern England centered on the art and legacy of Anthony van Dyck As a courtier, figure of fashion, and object of erotic fascination, Anthony van Dyck (1599–1641) transformed the professional identities available to English artists. By making his portrait sittings into a form of courtly spectacle, Van Dyck inspired poets and playwrights at the same time that he offended guardians of traditional hierarchies. A self-consciously Van...

Conférence : Alexander Marr, « Holbein’s Wit », Londres, Paul Mellon Centre, 16 novembre 2022

16 November 2022, 6:00 – 8:00 pm Book tickets This talk will address the tactical ambiguity of Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/8–1543)’s art as a form of wit. In a number of important pictures, including The Ambassadors, Portrait of Georg Gisze and Lady with a Squirrel and a Starling, Holbein deployed verbal-cum-visual puns to draw attention to his sitters’ and his own ingenuity (ingenium). The productive ambiguity of his pictures will be set within the context...

Séminaire : Michael Cole, Adam Jasienski, « Static Pictures, Living Portraits. Repainting, Conservation, and the Ontology of Images », Rome, Villino Stroganoff, 20 octobre 2022

Event on-site and online via Zoom. DATE: Oct 20, 2022. TIME: 11:00 AM – 01:00 PM (Local Time Germany) Portraiture, Alberti said, promises a permanence across time and space. Early modern artists and audiences had other ideas, though: they frequently interfered with ‘finished’ portraits. Carefully attending to the historical practices behind repainted portraits can help guide approaches to their conservation. The proceedings of a 1651 trail conducted by the Holy Office of the Inquisition regarding the...

Conférence : Monika Schmitter, « The Art Collector in Early Modern Italy: Andrea Odoni and his Venetian Palace », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 24 mai 2022, 17h30-18h30

Lorenzo Lotto’s famous portrait of Andrea Odoni in the Royal Collection may be the canonical image of the Renaissance art collector. Monika Schmitter will present her recent book which investigates who Odoni was and how and why he amassed an impressive collection of antiquities, modern sculpture, paintings, and naturalia in his relatively modest Venetian palace. Odoni was a non-noble citizen and son of an immigrant, not a member of the ruling Venetian elite, but he...

Parution : Sara van Dijk, “Remember Me: Renaissance Portraits”, Rotterdam, NAI010 publishers, 2022

  How Renaissance Old Masters expanded the terms and vocabulary of portraiture In the Renaissance, artists across Europe produced lifelike portraits with new virtuoso realism and exactitude, immortalizing not only kings and noblemen but, increasingly, bankers, merchants and scholars. These paintings, busts, prints and drawings still bear witness to the power, status, ambitions, friendships and religious convictions of their subjects. Whether they are lovers, celebrities or religious devotees, the people portrayed here implore the onlookers...

Colloque : « Animal et portrait à la Renaissance, “De bestiae dignitate” », Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature / Musée national de la Renaissance – Château d’Ecouen, 16-17 mai 2022

Dédié au portrait animal à la Renaissance, le colloque interrogera les liens qui ont attaché bêtes et humains en Europe entre le XVe siècle et le début du XVIIe, jusque dans l’art du portrait. Car c’est précisément au moment où cet art connaît ses plus grandes évolutions qu’apparaissent les effigies animales individualisées, autonomes pour certaines d’entre elles. Dans leur quête d’individuation, dans la construction de leur propre image, les êtres humains ont en effet éprouvé...

Parution : Timothy McCall, « Brilliant Bodies. Fashioning Courtly Men in Early Renaissance Italy », Pennsylvanie, Penn State University Press, 2022

Italian court culture of the fifteenth century was a golden age, gleaming with dazzling princes, splendid surfaces, and luminous images that separated the lords from the (literally) lackluster masses. In Brilliant Bodies, Timothy McCall describes and interprets the Renaissance glitterati — gorgeously dressed and adorned men — to reveal how charismatic bodies, in the palazzo and the piazza, seduced audiences and materialized power. Fifteenth-century Italian courts put men on display. Here, men were peacocks, attracting...

Exposition : « Remember Me », Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum, jusqu’au 16 janvier 2022

More than 100 Renaissance portraits, from Dürer to Sofonisba. Do you see me? And how do you see me? Powerful emperors, flamboyant aristocrats and well-to-do citizens. Throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, increasing numbers of people had themselves immortalised by the artists of the day. Remember me is about ambition, longing, loss – and how people want to be remembered. The desire to remember and to be remembered is a very old and human need....
