Étiqueté : Renaissance italienne

Parution : David Young Kim, « Groundwork: A History of the Renaissance Picture », Princeton University Press, 2022

The Italian Renaissance picture is renowned for its depiction of the human figure, from the dramatic foreshortening of the body to create depth to the subtle blending of tones and colors to achieve greater naturalism. Yet these techniques rely on a powerful compositional element that often goes overlooked. Groundwork provides the first in-depth examination of the complex relationship between figure and ground in Renaissance painting. “Ground” can refer to the preparation of a work’s surface, the fictive...

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...

The fable of Apuleius, frescoed in the Loggia of Cupid and Psyche by Raphael and his workshop, is framed by vegetable festoons: their rich hues associated with fruits from all continents represent the colours of prosperity. The chromatic richness of these fruits, many of them still...

Nach fast vierzig Jahren und erstmals in Deutschland wird dem Ausnahmekünstler Donatello eine eigene große Sonderausstellung gewidmet.

Bereits die Zeitgenossen erkannten seine überragende Bedeutung, und Auftraggeber aus ganz Italien...

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. Famed for his incredibly sensual sculpture of David—the first freestanding nude male sculpture since antiquity—Donatello (c. 1386–1466) also made reliefs, but was best known for statues in the round. Accompanying a truly historic exhibition...
