Conférence : Stefan Neuner, « The Boatman and the Possessed. Passages in a Double History by Vittore Carpaccio », Florence, Kunsthistorisches Institut, 27 octobre 2022

27. Oktober 2022, 15:00 Uhr Vittore Carpaccio’s Miracle of the Relic of the True Cross (ca. 1494–96) from the Scuola Grande di S. Giovanni Evangelista is commonly known as a “veduta” of the Grand Canal with a view of the ancient, wooden Rialto Bridge, which interests researchers primarily for its potential to generate cultural-historical “data.” The talk, however, turns to the narrative structure of the painting, and argues that Carpaccio actually juxtaposed two disparate events....

Parution : Daniel M. Unger, « Titian’s Allegory of Marriage. New Approaches », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book offers nine new approaches toward a single work of art, Titian’s Allegory of Marriage or Allegory of Alfonso d’Avalos, dated to 1530/5. In earlier references, the painting was named simply Allegory, alluding to its enigmatic nature. The work follows in a tradition of such ambiguous Venetian paintings as Giovanni Bellini’s Sacred Allegory and Giorgione’s Tempest. Throughout the years, Titian’s Allegory has engendered a range of diverse interpretations. Art historians such as Hans Tietze,...

Parution : Sylvia Ferino-Pagden, “Titian’s Vision of Women”, Skira, Lausanne, 2022

How the culture of Renaissance Venice shaped Titian’s timeless paintings of women A new ideal of feminine beauty arose in 16th-century Venice, as women acquired new rights of inheritance and more social power. As a result, through the writings of poets and humanists, the construction of the desired, beloved woman began to acquire civic significance. The crucial impetus for the visual realization of this ideal came from Venice’s greatest artist: Titian. For him, artistic beauty...

Appel à contribution : « Les pierres de Venise », Venise, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, 23-29 juin 2022, date limite le 21 avril 2022

Née modestement de la rencontre du sable et de l’eau, Venise a crû, en un miracle, jusqu’à devenir au fil du temps « le plus prodigieux événement urbanistique existant sur terre » (Le Corbusier). Cet essaim d’édifices posés en îlots compose aussi un mirage de pierre tant la cité de bâtisseurs s’est heurtée à l’éloignement de toute bonne carrière de pierre, obligeant à recourir à la pierre plutôt en parement sur des structures de briques,...
