Journées d’étude : « Regards sur les arts du feu », Cordes-Tolosannes, Abbaye de Belleperche, 29 septembre-1er octobre 2022

Objets intrinsèquement fragiles de par le matériau utilisé, les artefacts issus des arts du feu offrent une vision paradoxale quant à leur protection au titre des Monuments Historiques :  les émaux médiévaux de Limoges ou les statues de terre cuite de l’époque moderne sont bien représentés, alors que d’autres objets comme ceux en céramique ou en verre demeurent souvent les parents pauvres de ces pratiques. Si le vitrail vient naturellement à l’esprit lorsque les arts du...

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 en ligne : Materiality of Terracotta Sculpture 1400-1600, 9-10 septembre 2021

Modelled, Fired, Transformed: Materiality of Terracotta Sculpture 1400 – 1600 Terracotta has long suffered from the view that it is merely an auxiliary medium, to be analyzed primarily in relation to its role as a building material or its preparatory use in the design of more prestigious bronze or marble sculptures. Yet in recent decades scholars have shown that terracotta sculpture revolutionized the Italian fifteenth-century art scene and during the sixteenth century its artistic significance...
