Female patronage of religious institutions (London, 4 Jun 20)

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

Organizers: Denis Ribouillault (University of Montréal, Department of Art History) and Ana Duarte Rodrigues (University of Lisbon, Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e Tecnologia).

Although the history of early modern gardens has benefited in recent decades from an increasingly wide range of methodologies, the role played by these spaces in the development of science has been the subject of a relatively small number of inquiries. A majority of them concentrates on botanical gardens and the history of botany [Baldassari 2017], though it is now recognized that mathematics, pneumatics or astronomy found in . . . → 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

International Baroque Summer Course of the Werner Oechslin Library Foundation, Einsiedeln (21-25 juin 2020)

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

Appel à contributions : Ordering colours (Berlin, 13-14 mars 2020)

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

L’histoire de l’art se définit en grande partie par l’étude de la figure de l’artiste, et surtout par celle des maîtres autour desquels gravitent de nombreuses figures considérées comme secondaires. Une telle catégorisation est due en grande partie aux critères de valeur que la recherche applique aux œuvres. . . . → En lire plus

That artworks are closely tied to the landscape in which they are produced is often taken for granted, and yet the recent ecological turn in the humanities has only begun to critically intervene in the methodology of writing art’s histories. The two-day conference, Image and Ascent, raises related questions, highlighting new research of an interdisciplinary nature on images of and images in mountainous terrains that are remote, dangerous, and difficult to navigate but equally focusing on those . . . → En lire plus

Technologies de dévotion dans les arts de l’Islam : pèlerins, reliques, copies Par Finbarr Barry Flood, New York University.

LA CHAIRE DU LOUVRE

Dans un texte de 1920, Aby Warburg exprimait l’espoir que se réalise une « alliance entre l’histoire de l’art et l’étude de la religion ». Ce voeu constitue le point de départ approprié d’une série qui plaide pour la nécessité de se penche sur les relations intimes entre les corps, les matériaux et les technologies dans les rituels de dévotion. De la mimésis de l’architecture sacrée à la copie des textes, en passant par la répétition incarnée des rituels, deux dimensions fondamentales de la phénoménologie de . . . → En lire plus

La question d’une identité sociétale, nationale, religieuse et culturelle semble particulièrement actuelle aujourd’hui. Sur des sujets comme les inégalités, les conflits sociétaux, les débats migratoires ou les transformations médiatiques et communicationnelles, nous retrouvons des points de réflexion communs avec le début de l’époque moderne : du fait de basculements sociaux importants, d’échanges culturels . . . → En lire plus

Appel à publication : Journal 18: Special Issue on 1720

Journal 18: Special Issue on 1720 Deadline: Sep 21, 2019 Call for Papers

The year 1720 witnessed the world’s first international financial disaster, precipitated by the South Sea and Mississippi Bubbles. On the occasion of its upcoming tercentenary – and mindful of its relevance to our own contemporary experiences of financial collapse and instability – Journal18 is soliciting articles that reevaluate the importance and long-term cultural impact of 1720 as a watershed year. Though the 1720 economic crisis has long been recognized as gateway to the boom-and-bust cycles of the modern world, the field of art history has thus far contributed relatively little to our understanding of its significance. . . . → En lire plus

Exhibiting art before the Salon: the makings of a practice in early modern Europe

A panel organized by Olivier Bonfait and Robert Brennan

 

While art exhibitions play an increasingly important role in recent studies of modern and contemporary art, the long-term history of the exhibition has received relatively little scholarly attention. Standard histories of the art exhibition begin with the foundation of the Paris Salon, often presented as an institution linked with the liberalization of the arts and the emergence of art criticism in the 18th century. Yet Francis Haskell, Georg Friedrich Koch, and others have located many crucial precedents in earlier centuries, while . . . → En lire plus
