Ecriture et restauration des peintures aux XVIIIe et XIXe siècles : la recherche d’une pérennité de l’objet ?

Entre 1750 et 1850, alors que les restaurations de tableaux connaissent d’importantes évolutions, la publication de textes – connus aujourd’hui en tant que « traités » de peinture et de restauration – se multiplie en Europe, et notamment en France. Dans une volonté de préserver l’œuvre de façon pérenne, ces auteurs se font les historiens d’un vocabulaire propre à la restauration des tableaux et des matériaux employés. Qui sont-ils ? A quels procédés font-ils référence en tant que modèles à suivre ou à éviter ? A travers l’histoire de ces écrits et le désir de ces auteurs de retrouver les techniques du passé, qu’apprenons-nous sur l’histoire matérielle des œuvres et plus particulièrement des peintures ? En quoi cet aspect de la recherche est-il fondamental pour l’histoire de l’art ?

Barbara Jouves est en deuxième année de doctorat en histoire de l’art et de la conservation-restaurationà l’Université Paris 1. Sa recherche, développée sous la direction de Thierry Lalot, porte sur la conservation et restauration des peintures des collections privées à Paris entre 1789 et 1870. Elle est chargée d’enseignements à l’université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Continuer la lecture

Internationale Tagung

SCHÖNE WISSENSCHAFTEN

SAMMELN, ORDNEN UND PRÄSENTIEREN UNTER KAISER JOSEPH II.

„Schöne Wissenschaften“ beschäftigt sich mit den Sammlungen unter Kaiser Joseph II. und macht sie zum Ausgangspunkt weitreichender Fragen zur Sammlungsgeschichte, zum Öffentlichkeits- und Wissenschaftsverständnis im Wien des späten 18. Jahrhunderts. Sowohl kunst- als auch naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen stehen zur Diskussion sowie verschiedene, thematisch mit diesen verknüpfte Systematisierungs- und Ordnungsprojekte. Diesen disziplinär unterschiedlich gelagerten, aber in inhaltlicher, zeitlicher und örtlicher Parallele entstandenen Initiativen trägt die interdisziplinäre Tagung Rechnung, indem sich Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler aus verschiedenen Fachgebieten mit unterschiedlichen methodischen Ansätzen auf ein gemeinsames Thema konzentrieren: Aus der Perspektive des Sammelns, des Ordnens und des Präsentierens soll der Frage nachgegangen werden, inwieweit die josephinischen Sammlungen die Ideen der Aufklärung bündeln, in die Praxis übersetzen, verbreiten und popularisieren und sie so – exemplarisch für den bis heute nachwirkenden Paradigmenwechsel jener Zeit – zu Wissens- und Erkenntnisorten werden.

Le thème de la Réception critique de la restauration du XVIIIe au XXe siècle interroge, à travers des sources manuscrites ou imprimées, différents regards portés sur une discipline, la restauration, domaine en constante mutation depuis le XVIIIe siècle. Essais et textes d’experts, de journalistes, d’écrivains, d’artistes et de restaurateurs sont ici mis en perspective par des chercheurs afin de mettre en avant plusieurs points de vue quant à l’évolution des interventions et des pratiques sur les œuvres d’art.

Comment les restaurations sont-elles appréciées depuis le XVIIIe siècle et quelle est la notoriété de leurs praticiens ? Sont-elles les conséquences d’observations contemporaines ou sont-elles postérieures aux interventions pratiquées tant sur des peintures et des œuvres d’art graphiques que sur des édifices architecturaux ? Cette approche permet de se demander si les critiques, dans leur récurrence positive ou négative, portent plutôt sur les restaurations ou sur les restaurateurs eux-mêmes. Continuer la lecture

Colloque : « Maria Sibylla Merian Conference 2017 : Changing the Nature of Art and Science Intersections with Maria Sibylla Merian ».

Maria Sibylla Merian, Cédrat et arlequin de Cayenne, ca. 1701-1705, aquarelle gouachée sur vélin 36 x 27 cm, Londres, British Museum.

Type : colloque.
Date et horaire : du 7 au 9 juin 2017.
Lieu : Amsterdam.

Maria Sibylla Merian (1647–1717) is one of the more intriguing figures of scientific, artistic, and commercial culture of the early modern period. Born in Frankfurt and later based in Nuremberg, Wieuwerd, and Amsterdam, her scientific interest in entomology led her eventually to Surinam, where, as in Europe, she studied the metamorphoses of insects in their natural habitat. She translated her minute observations into powerful artistic representations that still attract the attention of many scholars, such as biologists, art historians, and science historians. Modern artists and novelists also find inspiration in her work and life.

The aim of the conference is to bring together new research and projects relating to Maria Sibylla Merian. With her life and work as a focal point this conference will also explore topics that relate to Merian from a broader perspective, such as the religious context of her work, early modern book production, Merian’s social network, Surinam as a colony, and entomological research.

Vanitas. Reconsideration of a pictorial concept

ANKK-sponsored Session

One of the most controversial pictorial concepts within the methodological debate of Netherlandish art history certainly was (and still is) the concept of the Vanitas of the mundane world. It has become quite common to view and subsume Dutch still life painting under the aspect of transience and to claim that those works include a moralizing message: The depicted objects – may it be the skull or hourglass, overturned glasses, wilted flowers, money, jewelry or instruments (used either in daily life or in art and science) – have been interpreted by art historical scholarship in rather generalizing terms as symbols of the vanity and impermanence of human life. Besides this rather cultural pessimistic interpretation there are additional readings of still life painting – for example a more sensualistic approach emphasizing the cognitive power of sense perception; or a social-historic position that links the genre to seventeenth-century European economic expansion by accentuating the importance of goods as a means to establish identity.

The Architecture of Commercial Networks 1500–1900

Improvements in communications and transport technology during the early modern period enabled new forms of global connectedness. Exploiting these technologies, European kingdoms were able to extend their reach and influence throughout the world, establishing lucrative markets for exotic goods. Embedded within the processes of imperial expansion and international commercial competition were sophisticated networks of trade relations, embracing metropolitan financial centers and local markets. Characteristic of this chain of transaction were the buildings that gave it physical form—a facilities infrastructure that enabled the processing, storage, and shipment of goods.

This session invites proposals that engage directly with the history of trade and infrastructural architectures in the context of commercial networks. It asks participants to consider ideas of spatial integration and common enterprise that such networks relied upon and engendered.
Questions include: in what ways were buildings concerned with trade shaped by their location within wider networks of related structures? What role did standardization and seriality play in the erections of such buildings? How did corporate identity affect type, style, and ornamentation? And, what relationships existed between spatial organization and technical specification in the ordering, processing, and conservation/preservation of goods?

The session especially welcomes proposals that engage wider historiographic frames of reference, such as regional, oceanic, and World/Global historiographies, methods of cultural and historical geography, the history of ‘things,’ as well as economic and business history, to provide further insight into the extended and systematized nature of networked space. This may include consideration of the colossal joint-stock corporations of the early modern period, such as the Asian and African trading companies of Britain, Holland, and France; smaller national and international mercantile syndicates of early modern Europe; or, later in the nineteenth century, large-scale agricultural, transportation, and mining corporations operating in Africa, the Americas, and Australasia.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Erforschung des 18. Jahrhunderts Annual Conference Moral Cultures (Paderborn, September 19-22, 2018)

Hardly any term is as ubiquitous during the 18th century as the term ‘morale’. For Niklas Luhmann the ‘universalization of moral demands’ is a pivotal trigger in the ongoing transformation of society from stratified to functional differentiation:  It forces back religion’s dominance, gives way to those new pedagogical (e. g. Pestalozzi, Weiße), psychological (Erfahrungseelenkunde) and political or juridical concepts (democracy, theories of penalty) that modern societies are based on. Furthermore, the omnipresence of morale is intertwined with the way an aspiring bourgeoisie defines itself and its educational values in opposition to nobility (see Carl Friedrich Bahrdts Handbuch der Moral für den Bürgerstand, 1790).

Northerners in Italy: Negotiating Style, Art Markets, and Comunità Historians of Netherlandish Art (HNA) Sponsored Session

The lure of Italy enticed hundreds of northern European artists to cross the Alps during the early modern period in search of artistic inspiration and fame in centers such as Venice, Rome, and Florence. How these artists negotiated their new surroundings, however, depended upon economic and social factors specific to each particular center. Recent studies focused upon artistic migration, emerging art academies, and expanding art markets in Italy have highlighted how complex and mercurial this process could be. However, a broader study that identifies consistent patterns concerning artistic mobility is still needed. This session seeks to address this lacuna, probing further the process of acclimation for northern European artists in Italy and the effect of travel on artistic practice and theory.
