Parution : Matthias Wivel, « Sebastiano del Piombo and Michelangelo: The Compass and the Mirror », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

The collaboration between Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) and Sebastiano del Piombo (1485-1547), is among the most extraordinary artistic partnerships of the early modern period. It produced works of startling originality, crucial to the development of the so-called High Renaissance in the first decades of the sixteenth century. It was arguably Michelangelos most creative collaboration, helping him refine motifs and narrative strategies, and it proved determining for Sebastianos development of a monumental, spiritually invested idiom whose influence...

Parution : Barbara Baert, « Petrifying Gazes. Danaë and the Uncanny Space », Louvain, Peeters Publishers, 2021

Of all the ancient myths where rain plays an important role, the impregnation of Danaë by Zeus through a golden rain is perhaps the one most often depicted in art. This essay is dedicated to the artistic afterlife of the myth, with special focus on the painting of Danaë (1527) by Jan Gossaert van Mabuse (1478-1532). Gossaert’s Danaë is a sophisticated articulation of outer and inner discourse: the hard, dry, background, with its eclectic architecture,...

Conférence : Eva Trizzullo, « Raphaël et la promotion de son art dans les coulisses du Vatican », Liège, 10 janvier, 18h30

Si Raphaël Sanzio devait sa fortune aux papes Jules II et Léon X, l’artiste et son atelier purent aussi compter sur le soutien indéfectible des nombreux prélats, cardinaux et autres familiers du pontife qui composaient l’administration vaticane.

Eva Trizzullo est doctorante en Histoire de l’Art à l’Université...

Conférence : Adriana Concin, « Florence and the Holy Roman Empire in the Sixteenth Century : Material Culture and Artistic Exchange », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 17 janvier 2022, 17h-18h30

During the second half of the sixteenth century, Florentine artistic production and access to it became increasingly sought after across the Holy Roman Empire. An important dynastic connection between the Austrian Habsburg dynasty and the Medici family in 1565 was the marriage of Archduchess Johanna of Austria (1547–1578) to Francesco I de’ Medici (1541–1587). This was a catalytic event that brought the German-speaking dominions of Central Europe into close contact with Florence, its court and...

Parution : Elizabeth Merrill, « Creating Place in Early Modern European Architecture », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

The importance of place—as a unique spatial identity—has been recognized since antiquity. Ancient references to the ‘genius loci’, or spirit of place, evoked not only the location of a distinct atmosphere or environment, but also the protection of this location, and implicitly, its making and construction. This volume examines the concept of place as it relates to architectural production and building knowledge in early modern Europe (1400-1800). The places explored in the book’s ten essays...

Parution : S. Ryan, S.L. Smith, L.K. Skinnebach, « Material Cultures of Devotion in the Age of Reformations », Leuven-Walpole, Peeters Publishers, 2021

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Northern Europe were characterized by enormous religious change. During this period new religious ideas and ideals gradually took shape and materialized in all aspect of religious life, both on a private level as well as in public and liturgical space. The fundamental question of how God could be experienced as present in the world, became – again – the center of lively debate. Lutheran, Calvinist, Roman Catholic and Anglican reformations – to mention...
