Parution : Christopher P. Heuer, « Into the White: The Renaissance Arctic and the End of the Image », Londres, Zone Books, 2019

European narratives of the Atlantic New World tell stories of people and things: strange flora, wondrous animals, and sun-drenched populations for Europeans to mythologize or exploit. Yet between 1500 and 1700 one region upended all of these conventions in travel writing, science, and, most unexpectedly, art: the Arctic. Icy, unpopulated, visually and temporally “abstract”, the far North – a different kind of terra incognita for the Renaissance imagination – offered more than new stuff to...

Parution : P. Bokody, A. Nagel (eds.), « Renaissance Meta-Painting », Brepols, 2019.

The volume offers an overview of meta-pictorial tendencies in book illumination, mural and panel painting during the Italian and Northern Renaissance. It examines visual forms of self-awareness in the changing context of Latin Christianity and claims the central role of the Renaissance in the establishment of the modern condition of art. Meta-painting refers to the ways in which artworks playfully reveal or critically expose their own fictiveness, and is considered a constitutive aspect of Western...

Parution : Frédéric Elsing, Connoisseurship et histoire de l’art, Genève, Droz, 2019

Dans la sphère académique, l’histoire de l’art traverse une crise d’identité qui gagne peu à peu le monde muséal. À force d’emprunter ses approches à d’autres disciplines des sciences humaines, elle prend le risque de perdre de vue son objet premier, l’œuvre d’art dans sa matérialité, et son outil le plus fondamental : le connoisseurship. Celui-ci consiste à établir l’identité des œuvres, en les replaçant dans la dynamique des parcours individuels et des échanges culturels....

Appel à contribution : « Travelling Objects, Travelling People: Art and Artists of Late Medieval and Renaissance Iberia and Beyond, c. 1400–1550 », Londres, The Courtauld Institute of Art, 28-29 mai 2020, date limite le 10 janvier 2020

Travelling Objects, Travelling People aims to nuance our understanding of the exchanges and influences that shaped the artistic landscape of Medieval and Renaissance Iberia. Traditional narratives hold that late fifteenth-century Iberian art and architecture were transformed by the arrival of artists, objects and ideas from France and the Low Countries, while 1492 marked a chronological rupture and the beginning of global encounters. Challenging these perceptions, this conference will reconsider the dynamics of artistic influence in...
