Exposition : « Strasbourg 1560-1600. Le renouveau des arts », Strasbourg, Musée de l’Œuvre Notre-Dame, 2 février-19 mai 2024

À la fin du XVIe siècle, Strasbourg est un foyer artistique éminent, dont l’activité doit beaucoup à sa position géographique privilégiée au coeur de l’Europe. Cette période de réveil des arts après la baisse d’activité qui fait suite à la Réforme est mal connue, car une grande partie de la production a disparu ou s’est trouvée dispersée. L’exposition souhaite explorer cette ultime saison de la Renaissance, marquée par la diffusion à travers tous les arts de...

Appel à contribution : « Performing Theatricality and Imaging Religious Ceremonies in Early Modern Western Europe », Gand, Ghent University, 15-17 mars 2024, date limite le 2 octobre 2023

2023 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of the early eighteenth-century book series Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde, a work on all the world’s religions known to Europe at that time and originally published in seven volumes between 1723 and 1737 in Amsterdam. Edited by the exiled French Huguenot Jean Frederic Bernard, the original seven volumes of the Cérémonies knew a vast distribution across European readers in the Netherlands,...

Parution : Larry Silver, « Art and Dis-illusion in the Long Sixteenth Century », Leyde, Brill, 2023

Whereas entire libraries discuss the religious and political history of the sixteenth century in Northern Europe, focused on the Reformation and the rise of nation-states, Larry Silver uniquely traces the dramatic, even traumatic changes of the Reformation era discernible in the visual arts, especially paintings and the new medium of prints. Among the subjects and themes he explores are the destruction of church images, witchcraft, reactions to new voyages of exploration, and issues of vision...

Parution : Emily J. Peters, Laura Ritter, “Tales of the City Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel”, New Haven, Yale University Press, 2022

  An innovative examination of sixteenth-century Netherlandish drawing against the backdrop of the urban economic boom, the Protestant Reformation, and the Eighty Years’ War Featuring works by Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516), Jan Gossaert (c. 1478–1532), Maarten van Heemskerck (1498–1574), Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525–1569), Hendrick Goltzius (1558–1617), and others, this book positions drawing in the Low Countries in the sixteenth century as a dynamic, multifaceted practice. Drawings played roles as varied as the artists...

Parution : G. Le Cuff, A. Lepoittevin (dir.), « Aiutando l’arte. Les inscriptions dans les décors post-tridentins d’Italie/ Le iscrizioni nella pittura post-tridentina italiana », Bruxelles, Peter Lang, 2022

« Aiutando l’arte con le parole per esprimere suo concetto » : ces mots de Giorgio Vasari trahissent l’ambivalence de la théorie artistique du Cinquecento devant les inscriptions dans la peinture, son auteur moquant ailleurs la « gofferia » des phylactères tardo-médiévaux. En disgrâce au début du XVIe siècle, l’intitulation et l’appareillage scripturaire des décors font retour après le concile de Trente afin de mieux encadrer la réalisation et la contemplation de l’art religieux. Cet...

Parution : Wietse de Boer, “Art in Dispute Catholic Debates at the Time of Trent”, Brill, Leyde, 2021

    Series :  Brill’s Studies on Art, Art History, and Intellectual History, Volume: 59 The Catholic Church answered Reformation-era contestations of the cult of images in a famous decree of the Council of Trent (1563). Art in Disputerevisits this response by focusing on its antecedents rather than its consequences. The mid-sixteenth century saw, besides new scholarship on Byzantine doctrines, heated debates about neo-scholastic interpretations. Disagreement, suppressed at Trent but re-emerging soon afterwards, centered on...

Parution : Marsha Libina, “Sebastiano del Piombo and the Sacred Image”, Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

On account of the artists’ collaborative practice, Sebastiano del Piombo’s oeuvre is often misconstrued as a coloristic supplement to Michelangelo’s disegno or as a mere extension of the older master’s drawings and ideas. Marsha Libina’s book complicates this narrative by offering a critical reevaluation of the devotional art of Sebastiano del Piombo (1485–1547), an important Venetian artist whose Roman work stands at the nexus of questions regarding art, religious reform and the largely unexplored history of artistic collaboration. Investigating...

Appel à contribution : « Printing and the Book During the Reformation. 1450-1650 », Colombus, Ohio State University, 4-30 juillet 2022, date limite le 1er mars 2022

Please consider applying to the forthcoming National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers on continuity and change in the production, dissemination, and reading of Western European books during the 200 years following the advent of printing with movable type. The seminar will pose the governing question of whether the advent of printing was a necessary precondition for the Protestant Reformation. Participants will consider ways in which elements such as book...

Parution : S. Ryan, S.L. Smith, L.K. Skinnebach, « Material Cultures of Devotion in the Age of Reformations », Leuven-Walpole, Peeters Publishers, 2021

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Northern Europe were characterized by enormous religious change. During this period new religious ideas and ideals gradually took shape and materialized in all aspect of religious life, both on a private level as well as in public and liturgical space. The fundamental question of how God could be experienced as present in the world, became – again – the center of lively debate. Lutheran, Calvinist, Roman Catholic and Anglican reformations – to mention...

Parution : DiFuria A. (dir.), Space, Image, and Reform in Early Modern Art : The Influence of Marcia Hall, Berlin, De Gruyter, 2021

The essays in Space, Image, and Reform in Early Modern Art build on Marcia Hall’s seminal contributions in several categories crucial for Renaissance studies, especially the spatiality of the church interior, the altarpiece’s facture and affectivity, the notion of artistic style, and the controversy over images in the era of Counter Reform. Accruing the advantage of critical engagement with a single paradigm, this volume better assesses its applicability and range. The book works cumulatively to...
