Un nouveau lien aux objets précieux émerge au XVIIIe siècle avec la conscience de soi et l’expansion des consommations domestiques. Dès lors, les objets satisfont des besoins quotidiens et répondent à des désirs. Comment penser aujourd’hui la culture matérielle occidentale qui en est issue ? L’auteur répond à cette question en faisant dialoguer l’historiographie ancienne avec des approches contemporaines, celles des cultural studies et de la global history notamment.

Emotional Objects – Northern Renaissance Afterlives in Object, Image and Word, 1890s-1920s

A one-day International Symposium, the Warburg Institute, School of Advanced Studies, University of London, 12-13 June 2020. Organizer: Prof. Juliet Simpson

In 1920 Louis Gillet, the French art historian and internationalist published a rousing article defending the repatriation of stolen fragments from the Van Eycks’ Ghent Altarpiece from Germany to Belgium as ‘un drapeau’. His ensign of a Northern patrimony pitched as an emotive call for a different cultural ‘belonging’ post-1918 was part of a pattern. Jean Fouquet’s Melun Diptych was vaunted as both a ‘jewel’, yet the opprobrium of France. At its . . . → En lire plus

The Courtauld Institute of Art, London, June 04, 2020 Deadline: Apr 10, 2020

‘Remarkable women’: Female patronage of religious institutions, 1350-1550

This conference seeks to explore the ways in which women patronised and interacted with monasteries and religious houses during the late Middle Ages, how they commissioned devotional and commemorative art for monastic settings, and the ways in which these donations were received and understood by their intended audiences. The artistic donations of lay patrons to religious institutions has become a fruitful area of study in recent years, but the specific role played by women in these networks of patronage has been subject to less thorough scrutiny. Similarly too, the interests of female patrons have often been considered separately from the . . . → En lire plus

Collecting Africa: Before, During and After Colonial Overrule

In recent years European and US museums and libraries have been facing mounting calls for the return of objects taken or acquired from Africa and other parts of the world during the Colonial era. The objects, the ways in which they are gathered and presented, and the institutions which house them have become contested, especially when they are tied to histories of violence and dispossession. The contestation is driven by a greater awareness of the relations between institutions and politics, . . . → En lire plus

Un bel composto: Mediality in the Baroque Twenty-first International Baroque Summer Course of the Werner Oechslin Library Foundation, Einsiedeln

Introduction: “The opinion is widespread that Bernini was the first to attempt to unite architecture with sculpture and painting in such a manner that together they make a beautiful whole.” The words of Filippo Baldinucci, referring to Gian Lorenzo Bernini, have become a commonplace since Irving Lavin’s book Bernini and the Unity of the Visual Arts (1980). What is outlined here with the term “bel composto” (a beautiful whole) is however in no way limited to Bernini or even the Italian baroque in its aesthetic quality. And not only . . . → En lire plus

Ordering colours in 18th and early 19th century Europe Technische Universität Berlin, Chair for the History of Science, March 13 – 14, 2020 Deadline: Nov 30, 2019

The question of how to order colours reaches far back, but in the 18th century, particularly in its second half, we see a steeply increasing number of studies that indicates a broad and urgent interest in classifying colour. Quite diverse contributions from the sciences, arts, crafts and trade created a diverse field of colour order research in the 18th century. The workshop will explore, examine and discuss those efforts and hereby contribute to the history of colour in 18th and early 19th . . . → En lire plus
