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...

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...

Colloque : « Église(s) et vies des Grands Hommes. Les renouvellements de la biographie religieuse entre Renaissance et réformes (Italie/Europe, 1300-1700)», en ligne, 11-12 mars 2021

La représentation en série des « grands hommes » devient, dans l’Europe de la fin du Moyen Âge et de la première modernité, un instrument d’exaltation d’individus contemporains, une modalité d’écriture de l’histoire du temps présent et de mise en scène de la gloire et du triomphe des institutions. Loin de se cantonner aux portraits des princes et des rois, des hommes de guerre ou des lettrés et artistes laïcs, le motif des hommes illustres...

Each of the organizations that forms the basis for this study oversaw renovations that included decorative programs centered on the apostles. At the complex of Gesù Pellegrino a fresco cycle represents...

By tracing its origins and examining the impact of the executions on Martin Luther, on the Reformed Augustinian world, and on the early Reformation in the Low Countries and the German speaking...
