Parution : Francesco Caglioti (ed), “Donatello: The Renaissance”, Venise, Marsilio, 2022

  A beautiful appraisal of the Renaissance sculptor’s achievements, contextualized with works by his contemporaries. The first thorough overview of the artist in many years, Donatello: The Renaissance reconstructs the outstanding career of one of the greatest sculptors in Western art.

Accompanying a truly historic exhibition...

Parution : Inge Reist, “When Michelangelo Was Modern”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

Through case studies of collectors, patrons, and agents who redefined collecting and the art market, this volume illuminates how the changing status of the artist, rise of connoisseurship, role of intermediaries and new patterns of consumption established models for collecting and display that resemble those still practiced today. The book presents new research by recognized scholars who examine the motivations of collectors and agents, emphasizing how their collecting, patronage and advocacy could require support of...

Exposition : « Carlo Crivelli : Shadows on the Sky », Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, jusqu’au 29 mai 2022

Ikon presents the first exhibition in the UK dedicated to the work of Renaissance artist Carlo Crivelli. Shadows on the Sky highlights his experimental use of perspective, trompe l’oeil (optical illusion) and sculptural relief to create illusions of illusionism. Such cleverness was conveyed with consummate craftsmanship and foiled by an extraordinary elegance. Crivelli’s paintings both suggest and undermine his own visual trickery to explore the coexistence of material and spiritual realities. Organised in partnership with...
