Online Conference : Venice in Blue : The Use of Carta azzurra in the Artist’s Studio and in the Printer’s Workshop, ca. 1500–50, University of St Andrews, 2–3 Septembre 2021

At the turn of the sixteenth century, blue paper emerged as a chosen support for drawing and printing in Venice. Artists including Vittore Carpaccio (ca. 1460–ca. 1526), Lorenzo Lotto (ca. 1480–1556), Titian (ca. 1488–1576), Sebastiano del Piombo (ca. 1485–1547), and Jacopo Tintoretto (1518/19–1594) utilised this support for drawings to explore the tonal effects of light and shade on colour. At the same time, publishers like Aldus Manutius (ca. 1445–1515), Francesco Marcolini (ca. 1500–after 1559), and...

Parution : Nicola Suthor, « Bravura: Virtuosity and Ambition in Early Modern European Painting », Princeton University Press, 2021

The painterly style known as bravura emerged in sixteenth-century Venice and spread throughout Europe during the seventeenth century. While earlier artistic movements presented a polished image of the artist by downplaying the creative process, bravura celebrated a painter’s distinct materials, virtuosic execution, and theatrical showmanship. This resulted in the further development of innovative techniques and a popular understanding of the artist as a weapon-wielding acrobat, impetuous wunderkind, and daring rebel. In Bravura, Nicola Suthor offers...

Matteo Casini (University of Massachusetts, Boston), A Society on Show: State Processions in Renaissance Venice (1495-1600) From the well-known Palm Sunday Procession in 1495 to the early 17th century, the main State processions in Venice were extraordinary feasts in which intense acts of religious devotion were intertwined with civic splendor and symbolism. Long corteges developed with hundreds of participants, particularly in St. Mark’s Square, and their exhibition lasted hours. The church and confraternities appeared with...

Parution : Ella Beaucamp et Philippe Cordez, Typical Venice? The Art of Commodities, 13th-16th centuries, Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

What is the art of commodities, and how does it contribute to shaping a city? The case of Venice, which perhaps more than any other late medieval or early modern city depended on trade, offers some widely applicable considerations in response to these questions. Commodities exist as such only when they can be bought and sold. Select materials, techniques and tools, motifs, and working processes are entailed in the conception and realization of commodities, with...

Bergamo was one of the most important of the strong points fortified by the Venetian state in the sixteenth century, through its position at the end of the chain in acting...

Appel à communication : « A Fresh Look at Fresco in Venice », Dublin, RSA 2021, date limite le 10 août 2020

Since the sixteenth century the place of Venetian painting within the history and theory of art has been inextricably linked with the use of oil paint on canvas. Yet the city was once renowned for its frescoes too. Noting that the palaces along the Grand Canal were all painted, the French envoy Philippe de Commynes, visiting in 1495, deemed it the “most beautiful street in the entire world.” Francisco de Hollanda (1548) described the entire...
