Exposition : « Poussin and the Dance », Londres, National Gallery, 9 octobre 2021-2 janvier 2022

Tambourines shake, wine spills, and half-naked figures whirl across the canvas in these paintings of revelry, dance and drama that are brought together in this first exhibition dedicated to Poussin and dance. Poussin’s paintings of dance are unique. He brings to life the Classical world of gods and mortals with wild and riotous movement but, the chaos on the canvas does not reflect the meticulous and inventive process that allowed him to capture bodies in...

A une époque qui voit l’information se multiplier tout en changeant de forme, il est nécessaire de s’interroger sur la question de la parole, depuis sa genèse moderne à sa profusion contemporaine, mais également à son impact. Le projet Anthropologie politique et religieuse de la parole (XVIe-XVIIIe siècle) vise à mettre en lumière l’importance de la problématique de la gestion de la parole dans les sociétés modernes. Dans un paradoxe tout à fait fascinant, la...

Parution : Michael Zell, « Rembrandt, Vermeer, and the Gift in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Art », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

This book offers a new perspective on the art of the Dutch Golden Age by exploring the interaction between the gift’s symbolic economy of reciprocity and obligation and the artistic culture of early modern Holland. Gifts of art were pervasive in seventeenth-century Europe and many Dutch artists, like their counterparts elsewhere, embraced gift giving to cultivate relations with patrons, art lovers, and other members of their social networks. Rembrandt also created distinctive works to function...

Parution : Nico van Hout, « Study Heads. Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard, Part XX, 2 », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

This book is devoted to a remarkable aspect of Rubens’s painted production. It investigates and catalogues not only works that Ludwig Burchard (1886–1960) gathered into the category of ‘Study Heads’, but also head studies by artists closely connected to Rubens’s workshop which were demonstrably used in his paintings. The existence of a stock of study heads or tronies allowed Rubens and his collaborators to exploit the same figures in many different contexts and create satisfying...

Exposition : « Smell the Art. Fleeting – Scents in Colour », La Haye, Mauritshuis, jusqu’au 29 août 2021

Have you ever wondered what an Amsterdam canal smelled like 400 years ago? It would have been pretty grim: excrement, waste materials and all kinds of filth were dumped into the water. The same water that poorer housewives then did their laundry in. Personal and general hygiene were far from what they are today. People were convinced that foul smells could harm their health. Luckily there were all kinds of tricks for disguising unpleasant smells...

Parution : Christopher White, « Anthony Van Dyck and the Art of Portraiture », New Haven, Yale University Press, 2021

In this sumptuously illustrated volume, eminent art historian Sir Christopher White places the portraiture of renowned Flemish painter Anthony Van Dyck (1599–1641) in context among the work of his contemporaries working in and around the courts of seventeenth-century Europe. Van Dyck’s artistic development is charted through his travels, beginning in his native Antwerp, then to England, Italy, Brussels, the Hague, and back again. Combining historical insights with a discerning appreciation of the work, White brings...

Appel à contribution : « Figures of Widows », Paris, INHA, 15 juin 2021, date limite le 15 mars 2021

Woman and widow under the Ancien Régime? The images defining a woman abound, should they describe a seductive woman, an influential or a common one. However, the images that could characterize the widow remain vague. As a matter of fact, the widow is defined essentially in negative terms; a widow is ‘the one who has lost her husband’ [1]. The social status imposed by widowhood is considered less favorable than that of a married woman,...

Appel à contribution : « L’antiquité dans le paysage. Site, nature et mémoire dans l’art pictural de la période moderne », Lausanne, Université de Lausanne, 21 mai 2021, date limite le 28 février 2021

Organisation : Raphaëlle Merle, Université Paris 10 – Nanterre ; Desmond Kraege, AHO Oslo School of Architecture and Design / Université de Lausanne Entre 1600 et 1850, les images se rapportant au monde méditerranéen sont nombreuses et articulent, très régulièrement, représentation des sites naturels et mise en scène de l’architecture antique. Si les lieux figurés renvoient souvent à des architectures et à des paysages réels, bien identifiables, il arrive également que ceux-ci soient transformés, que la scène...
