This catalogue accompanies an exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, which is the first dedicated to the graphic oeuvre of Antoine Caron (1521-1599). Bringing together a core group of drawings centred around the figures and deeds of the French Royal family, the Valois, this display highlights the role played by Catherine de' Medici (1519-1589). Featuring the Valois series, a set of drawings here reunited for the first time, the display showcases the way in which the powerful and influential Catherine promoted the success of her regency and future of her progeny by delivering a series of lavish courtly events that were meant to enhance the power and diplomacy of her family. The drawings represent jousts, tournaments, festivals and a mock naval battle, events that occurred at the French court during the reigns of Catherine's sons Charles IX and Henri III. Preparatory designs for a group of tapestries, these visual documents relate to actual events that were organised by the court, some of which took place at the French castles of Anet, Palace of Fontainebleau, Bayonne and at the Tuileries Gardens in Paris. Minutely designed, they thus allow a reconstruction of the visual testimony of those events, as they were documented in written contemporary sources.

The 16th century bronze plaques from the kingdom of Benin are among the most recognized masterpieces of African art, and yet many details of their commission and installation in the palace in Benin City, Nigeria, are little understood. The Benin Plaques, A 16th Century Imperial Monument is a detailed analysis of a corpus of nearly 850 bronze plaques that were installed in the court of the Benin kingdom at the moment of its greatest political power and geographic reach. By examining European accounts, Benin oral histories, and the physical evidence of the extant plaques, Gunsch is the first to propose an installation pattern for the series.

In 1559 and 1561, the Antwerp print publisher Hieronymus Cock issued an unprecedented series of landscape prints known today simply as the Small Landscapes. The forty-four prints included in the series offer views of the local countryside surrounding Antwerp in simple, unembellished compositions. At a time when vast panoramic and allegorical landscapes dominated the art market, the Small Landscapes represent a striking innovation. This book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the significance of the Small Landscapes in early modern print culture. It charts a diachronic history of the series over the century it was in active circulation, from 1559 to the middle of the seventeenth century. Adopting the lifespan of the prints as the framework of the study, Alexandra Onuf analyzes the successive states of the plates and the changes to the series as a whole in order to reveal the shifting artistic and contextual valences of the images at their different moments and places of publication. This unique case study allows for a new perspective on the trajectory of print publishing over the course of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries across multiple publishing houses, highlighting the seminal importance of print publishers in the creation and dissemination of visual imagery and cultural ideas. Looking at other visual materials and contemporary sources - including texts as diverse as humanist poetry and plays, agricultural manuals, polemical broadsheets, and peasant songs - Onuf situates the Small Landscapes within the larger cultural discourse on rural land and the meaning of the local in the turbulent early modern Netherlands. The study focuses new attention on the active and reciprocal intersections between printed pictures and broader cultural, economic and political phenomena.

"Une mouche. Une simple mouche, posée sur l'écorce d'un arbre, en marge d'une Adoration des Mages de 1535. Un détail qui n'a rien d'anodin, pour une oeuvre représentative de ce que fut la Renaissance toulousaine : ambitieuse, érudite, rayonnante. Celle-ci s'épanouit dans une ville de combats tout autant que de cocagne, de feu et de passions où les artistes furent en mesure de sublimer émotions et ambitions : ainsi d'une mouche, venant en divertissement d'une enluminure ou encore d'une larme, perlant au creux de la joue d'un apôtre échevelé de douleur, en couverture de ce catalogue."--Page 4 of cover.

"De toutes les images que la postérité nous a laissées de François ler, celle de l'amateur d'art italien est probablement l'une des plus profondément ancrées dans la mémoire collective. On sait moins la richesse des relations que le souverain a nouées avec le Nord, en particulier son intérêt pour les arts des anciens Pays-Bas méridionaux. Les artistes flamands, spécialement les portraitistes, ont joué un rôle de premier plan dans la vie culturelle française de l'époque. Ainsi François 1er confie-t-il à des Flamands le soin d'exécuter ses portraits ou ceux de son entourage. Jean Clouet, portraitiste officiel du premier roi Valois, en est l'exemple le plus fameux. D'autres personnalités flamandes sont présentes à la cour de France, comme les peintres et dessinateurs Gauthier de Campes, Godefroy le Batave, Léonard Thiry ou Noël Bellemare, au service de François let ou actifs sur les chantiers royaux, notamment à Fontainebleau. Leur influence s'étend aux domaines de la majolique, des arts dits "décoratifs" et de la gravure. La place de l'art flamand dans les collections royales françaises constitue un autre volet des relations entre le roi de France et les productions artistiques du Nord. À cet égard, la tapisserie est un champ d'acquisition exceptionnel pour le souverain français. La musique n'est pas en reste : plusieurs compositeurs flamands, ou d'origine flamande, fréquentent la chapelle royale de François. Fruit d'un travail collectif, cet ouvrage réhabilite la présence, longtemps négligée, des arts du Nord à la cour de France."--Page 4 of cover.

After the Counter-Reformation, the Papal State of Bologna became a hub for the flourishing of female artistic talent. The eighteenth-century biographer Luigi Crespi recorded over twenty-eight women artists working in the city, although many of these, until recently, were ignored by modern art criticism, despite the fame they attained during their lifetimes. What were the factors that contributed to Bologna's unique confluence of women with art, science, and religion? The Devout Hand explores the work of two generations of Italian women artists in Bologna, from Lavinia Fontana (1552-1614), whose career emerged during the aftermath of the Counter Reformation, to her brilliant successor, Elisabetta Sirani (1638-1665), who organized the first school for women artists. Patricia Rocco further sheds light on Sirani's students and colleagues, including the little-known engraver Veronica Fontana and the innovative but understudied etcher Giuseppe Maria Mitelli. Combining analysis of iconography, patronage, gender, and reception studies, Rocco integrates painting, popular prints, book illustration, and embroidery to open a wider lens onto the relationship between women, virtue, and the visual arts during a period of religious crisis and reform. A reminder of the lasting power of images, The Devout Hand highlights women's active role in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Christian reform and artistic production.

Erstmals wird das Diplomatenporträt als eigene kunstwissenschaftliche Kategorie definiert. Bereits im 16. und 17. Jahrhundert etablierten europäische Regierungen ein Netzwerk ständiger diplomatischer Beziehungen. Damals wurde auch das Amt des Botschafters begründet. Mit Beginn der Frühen Neuzeit ließen sich Botschafter und Gesandte in ihrer Rolle als international agierende Diplomaten porträtieren. Diese Bildnisse sind eindrückliche Inszenierungen ihres Selbstverständnisses und Statusbewusstseins. Anhand von 25 ausgewählten Gemälden führt die Autorin vor, wie sich Diplomaten im Verlauf der Zeit darstellten, welche Bildstrategien und Intentionen Künstler und Auftraggeber verfolgten.

Focusing on the impact of the erotic revolution that swept through 16th-century Italy, Eros Visible presents a compendious, revisionist account of High Renaissance art. Through close visual analysis of artworks and careful reading of related texts, James Grantham Turner demonstrates the surprisingly close connection between explicitly pornographic art and the canonical works of masters such as Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Full of new discoveries, this volume explores the passionate response to antiquity and how a new sex-positive philosophy not only encouraged an increased accentuation of sensual and erotic themes in art, but influenced the sexual cultures of both the court and the art studio. With an interdisciplinary approach that draws on a wide array of visual and textual erotica, Turner offers the first broad, synthetic history of the classically inspired and unambiguously lascivious sensibilities behind some of the most sublime artistic achievements of the Renaissance.

Erudite Eyes explores the network of the Antwerp cartographer Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598), a veritable trading zone of art and erudition. Populated by such luminaries as Pieter Bruegel, Joris Hoefnagel, Justus Lipsius and Benedictus Arias Montanus, among others, this vibrant antiquarian culture yielded new knowledge about local antiquities and distant civilizations, and offered a framework for articulating art and artistic practice. These fruitful exchanges, undertaken in a spirit of friendship and collaboration, are all the more astonishing when seen against the backdrop of the ongoing wars. Based on a close reading of early modern letters, alba amicorum, printed books, manuscripts and artworks, this book situates Netherlandish art and culture between Bruegel and Rubens in a European perspective.
