Appel à contribution : « Ci-bas et au-delà. Les chapelles dans l’espace ecclésial de la France du XVIIe siècle », Rouen, Université de Rouen Normandie, 5-7 octobre 2023, date limite le 30 janvier 2023

L’analyse formelle ou fonctionnaliste de l’espace sacré tend à voir le bâtiment ecclésial comme une juxtaposition d’espaces clairement distincts – la nef, le chœur, ou encore le transept – dont la séparation refléterait notamment la différence d’état (clercs et laïcs). L’espace ecclésial peut être également envisagé comme un agrégat de chapelles de différentes tailles, ainsi que le suggère la lecture des écrits de Charles Borromée : celui-ci considérait le chœur comme une « chapelle majeure » (de capella...

Parution : C. Strine, M. Mclnroy, A. Torrance, « Image as Theology. The Power of Art in Shaping Christian Thought, Devotion, and Imagination », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

Our lives are saturated with images. They exert an unparalleled power in contemporary culture. However, the power of images is in fact nothing new. Although texts are often the most important historical sources for academics, the image played an enormous role for those who actually lived in these past societies. Images communicated all manner of concepts and messages to a much wider audience than theological texts. Throughout history, images frequently depicted God, human beings, and...

Parution : Bianca Kühnel, « Jerusalem Icons in the European Space », Louvain, Peeters Publishers, 2022

Based on scripture, exegesis, and an ongoing dialogue with the Jewish and Islamic presence, Jerusalem maintains a central position in Christian spirituality. After several studies that mapped visual references to the holy city in various other representational media, Bianca Kühnel dedicates the present volume to the monumental presence of Jerusalem in European Latin Christianity. The works discussed in this book have a spatial dimension, defined by mimetic architecture and mimetic topography brought to life by...

Collections in Early Modern Era, international workshop on spaces for collections, collecting and collectors. The history of collecting is one of the most interesting fields of art history, offering opportunities for interdisciplinary research. Research on the origins and development of art collections, on how works were acquired through agents and presented to the public, and, last but not least, on the collector integrates many disciplines. In addition to art history, these include history, sociology, psychology,...

Appel à contribution : « Gold in Renaissance Western Europe. Interdisciplinary Approaches », Paris, 9-10 juin 2022, date limite le 1er mars 2022

In his influential book on painting and visual culture in fifteenth-century Italy (Painting and Experience in Fifteenth-Century Italy, 1972), Michael Baxandall described the abandonment of gold in painting practices as a sensitive phenomenon both in contracts between painters and patrons, and in the writings of some authoritative art theorists. He linked this attitude to a more general movement on a European scale, consisting of the decline of some practices of display, for example the fashion...

Séminaire : David Ekserdjian, « God and the Painters : The Altarpiece in the Italian Renaissance », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 10 décembre 2021, 18h30-20h

“My book The Italian Renaissance Altarpiece: Between Icon and Narrative, came out in June 2021. It is never easy to judge one’s own work, but what I think I have tried to do is to provide a species of taxonomy for Italian renaissance altarpieces and at the same time to explore who – between the patrons, the ecclesiastical authorities, and the artists – actually calls the shots.” David Ekserdjian is Professor of History of Art and Film at...
