Au XVIe siècle, l’Europe entière découvrit, grâce aux gravures reproduisant les œuvres mythiques de Raphaël, des dieux et des héros antiques, mais aussi des madones et des saints à la beauté radieuse, et tout un monde de formes évoquant une perfection céleste et intemporelle. Amour, désir et violence, vitalité heureuse et tragédie : les réalisations du génie emblématique de la Renaissance visualisaient les expériences essentielles de l’être humain avec une efficacité expressive sans précédent.

Praised by his contemporaries, by later art historians, and by generations...

Parution : D. Ekserdjian, « The Italian Renaissance Altarpiece. Between Icon and Narrative », Yale University Press, 2021

The comprehensive study of the Italian Renaissance altarpiece from the 13th to the early 17th century The altarpiece is one of the most distinctive and remarkable art forms of the Renaissance period. It is difficult to imagine an artist of the time—whether painter or sculptor, major or minor—who did not produce at least one. Though many have been displaced or dismembered, a substantial proportion of these works still survive. Despite the volume of material available,...

Appel à communication : « Facciati Dipinti e Parlante: New Investigations of the Frescoed Façade in Italy », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 1er août 2021

Though its remains are vanishing rapidly, the frescoed façade tradition of the Italian peninsula has enjoyed a recent resurgence in interest among scholars for the variety and ingenuity these painted faces revealed. From desires to root structures in antiquity to simply dressing one’s dwelling to make a humble space more imposing or on trend, these facades tell their own stories of artistic innovation, symbolic meaning, and visual presence among the bustling streets of many Italian...

Conférence : Victor Schmidt, « Renaissance Processional Banners and Standards from the Marches », en ligne, le 3 juin, 18h00

Processional banners and standards form a fascinating category in early modern painting.

Some are modest artefacts, while others are the work of the greatest painters of the period, such as Gentile da Fabriano, Luca Signorelli, Perugino, Raphael and Titian. In this lecture, Victor Schmidt will discuss a number of aspects of these paintings, including typology, function,...

Parution : Nerida Newbigin, « Making a Play for God: The Sacre Rappresentazioni of Renaissance Florence », 2021

Playful pleasure or devout piety? Why did Florentines invest so much effort in the performance of sacre rappresentazioni, their dramatizations of the life of Christ and the saints, the history of Man’s Salvation from the Creation to the Last Judgement, Old and New Testament stories, and miracles of the Virgin?
