Colloque : Alabaster as a Material for Medieval and Renaissance Sculpture, MAD Paris & Musée du Louvre, Paris, 18-20 Janvier 2022

The 8th ARDS annual colloquium focuses on alabaster as a material for European sculpture from the 14th until the 17th century. Much research has been carried out on this subject over the past few decades in several European countries, both in universities and in laboratories, and in particular on the occasion of restorations carried out in museums and historic monuments. New analysis methods have improved our knowledge of the origin of alabaster and the quarries exploited during...

Conférence : Elizabeth Savage, Kirsty Sinclair Dootson, « Printing Colour. Renaissance Germany/Victorian Britain », en ligne, 7 décembre 2021, 17h-19h

Later designers and artists around Europe celebrated these techniques’ heritage for centuries, from the ‘Dürer Renaissance’ until chromolithography revolutionised the print market in the nineteenth century. Elizabeth Savage will detail the story of the beginnings of colour printing in Germany through the unrivalled collection of the British Museum, whose rich holdings include many previously unidentified examples of early modern colour-printing, some...

Appel à communication : « Framing the multimodality of early modern images : agency, performance and medialogy to study artefacts », RSA, Dublin 2022, date limite le 27 juillet 2021

Understanding paintings and sculptures as a « dispositif » (De Certeau, Agamben) has become a new research approach in the Humanities in recent years. Visual anthropology  and cognition are nowadays commonly used to explore how early modern images work within a process of production, mediation and reception (Freedberg & Gallese ; Belting). However, Visual semiology, Information and Communication Sciences are yet to be invested in a fruitful medialogy that could provide a bridge between disciplines. Studying interpersonal and...

Parution : Malcolm Baker et Inge Reist (dir.), Sculpture Collections in Europe and the United States 1500-1930, Leyde, Brill, 2021

Exploring the variety of forms taken by collections of sculpture, this volume presents new research by twelve internationally recognized scholars.

Parution : Emmanuelle Mercier, et al., « Flesh, Gold and Wood. The Saint-Denis altarpiece in Liège and the question of partial paint practices in the 16th Century », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

The impressive altarpiece in the church of Saint-Denis in Liège is one of the most prestigious but also one of the most enigmatic witnesses to the rich Brabantine altarpiece production at the end of the Middle Ages. The interdisciplinary study carried out during its restoration at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) in Brussels between 2012 and 2014 allowed to resolve some of the questions involved and to propose new refreshing hypotheses. The attribution...
