Conférence : Marco Scansani, « Giovanni de Fondulis. A Forgotten Protagonist of North Italian Renaissance Sculpture », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 28 février 2022, 17h-18h30

When we think of terracotta sculpture from northern Italy, the first works that come to mind are the impressive Paduan Lamentation groups, especially the masterpieces of Guido Mazzoni and Niccolò dell’Arca. The name of Giovanni de Fondulis is certainly not among the most well-known, neither among specialists, nor among the general public. After all, his name was only rediscovered in 2006 and his artistic personality was not outlined until an exhibition two years ago. Yet he was, without a shadow of a doubt,...

Parution : Zuzanna Sarnecka, « The Allure of Glazed Terracotta in Renaissance Italy », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

In her richly illustrated study Sarnecka brings together devotional glazed terracotta produced in Italy by the Della Robbia family and by unidentified contemporaries working in the same medium to propose a new way of thinking about the religious art in Renaissance Italy. This book explores the role of glazed terracotta sculpture in Renaissance Italy, from c. 1450 to the mid-1530s. In its brightness and intense colour glazed terracotta strongly attracted the viewer’s gaze. Its pure...

Colloque : The Art and Industry of Stucco Decoration, en ligne et à Rome, 3-4 février 2022

Stucco decoration has been traditionally studied considering its formal and artistic qualities. Despite much research and numerous publications have explored the works of the stuccatori and their cultural context, there has been little attention on the “art and industry” of these artists, and on how their practical and technical “know-how” contributed to the great professional and artistic success that they enjoyed. Many stucco decorations all over Europe have been realized by masters coming from the...

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

Elizabeth Savage: Early Colour Printing: German Renaissance Woodcuts  Colour printing techniques transformed how printed material could be used during the technological and cultural revolutions of the sixteenth century. 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. The essays delve into the motivations of different collectors, the modes of display, and the aesthetics of viewing sculpture, bringing to light much new archival material. The book underscores the ambiguous nature of sculpture collections, variously understood as decorative components of interiors or gardens, as objects of desire in cabinets of curiosity, or as autonomous...

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...
