Abstract

Parmi les nombreux monuments qu'a conservés la ville de Rouen, la cathédrale Notre-Dame occupe une place privilégiée. Son histoire s'enracine dans le passé le plus lointain. Située au cœur du centre historique, qu'elle domine de sa flèche imposante, elle est considérée par tous comme l'emblème de la ville. Elle constitue aussi un précieux témoignage sur l'art des bâtisseurs du Moyen Age et sur l'évolution des formes architecturales du XIIe au XVe siècle. C'est enfin un lieu que maîtres verriers, peintres et sculpteurs n'ont cessé d'embellir au cours des siècles, nous laissant en héritage de véritables chefs d'œuvre, comme le vitrail de saint Julien l'hospitalier, le tombeau des cardinaux d'Amboise et bien d'autres merveilles.

Abstract

Characteristic for all contributions to the Wiener Jahrbuch in 2010 is the presentation of latest research findings with the help of methodological refinements. Thus Assaf Pinkus suggests a new interdisciplinary approach for trecento painting, which brings the viewer's perceptions into an analysis of image creation. Milena Bartlová, on the other hand, addresses the little considered subject of the iconoclasm of Bohemian Hussites. An important finding is that Hussitism was unable to give up the image in its medieval function, since the printed book - which could have taken over the communicative qualities of the image - had not yet been invented. Giovan Battista Fidanza also deals with a little considered subject - namely Michelangelo as wood carver. He is able to demonstrate convincingly that Michelangelo applied prefabricated blocks of limewood in the assemblage of his wooden crucifixes.
The four subsequent articles are dedicated to Baroque art. Eckhart Leuschner defines the Baroque allegory as a constant and internationally standardised deployment of formal and semantic possibilities. At the centre of Kristoffer Neville's contribution is an early version of Fischer von Erlach's Entwurff einer historischen Architectur, with the help of which the creative process of Fischer's main architectural-theoretical work is reconstructed. In the complicated memoria programme of the state sarcophagus finished for Franz Stephan and Maria Theresia in 1754 in the crypt of the Vienna Capuchin Church, Werner Telesko identifies both Antique and Christian strands of tradition. Werner Hofmann, meanwhile, recognises the 1711 endowment decree for Lothar Franz von Schönborn as an inofficial foundation source for Schloss Pommersfelden and traces a 'hypertext' within the decree, which represents the key for the building's iconography.
The amateur drawings of the Habsburgs from the 19th century are comprehended by Kerstin Merkel as autonomous non-verbal sources and integrated with historical information. Iris Wien, by contrast, sets two self-portraits of Andy Wahrhol within his known oeuvre and convincingly suggests an interpretation as Medusa.
In the last four contributions to the volume, the Memorabilia, important contemporary historical documents for the history of the Vienna School are published and made accessible. Alexandra Caruso edits the memoirs of Erica Tietze Conrat. The letters of Wilde, presented by Károly Kókai, provide insights into events within the circles of Vienna art history at that time. Evonne Levy publishes for the first time a selection of letters written by Hans Sedlmayr to Meyer Schapiro in the period 1930-35. Charles Hope succeeds in portraying in convincing complexity the scholarly range of Sir Ernst Gombrich.

Abstract

Dans le patrimoine artistique médiéval, les plafonds peints ont une place méconnue et pourtant essentielle. Ce volume qui rassemble les actes du colloque tenu à Capestang, Narbonne et Lagrasse les 21, 22 et 23 février 2008, inaugure une nouvelle étape de leur connaissance. L'étude des techniques, souvent savantes et complexes, de construction et d'assemblage des bois y rencontre l'analyse d'un corpus d'images d'une étonnante richesse thématique et chromatique. Des peintres de grand talent côtoient des imagiers plus rustiques. Dans ce domaine d'études encore peu parcouru, les codes iconographiques sont, pour une bonne part, à découvrir. Comprendre les programmes choisis par chaque commanditaire, les comparer entre eux, c'est à quoi se consacre ce volume composé d'une centaine d'images.

Abstract

This book is the first complete description of 13th century architecture in Austria. This period was significant for ist political and historical events and upheavels in the provinces of Austria, but at the same time for the transition from romanic to gothic style. The book is the result of the author's continuous studies in this field of architectural history for more than 35 years. Basing on his doctoral thesis of 1975 the author is outlining a completely new panorama of the development in 13th century architecture by using the results of recent investigations, reconstructions and newly interpreted historical sources. Some important results were achieved on behalf of FWF-projects under the author's direction (reconstruction of the Capella Speciosa at Klosterneuburg, research on the history of the Imperial Palace di Vienna). The results are corresponding in perfect way with the scientifical researches in neighbouring countries as Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia and Germany, in regard of the long range cultural communications during the Middle Ages, which in former theories were denied by presupposing a distinct stylistic retard in Austrian architecture. Highly important was the author's proof that in the 13th century in Austria existed a contemporaneity between advanced and retarded stylistic forms. The choice of the stylistic attitude mainly depended on the client. The introduction of the book gives a survey of the actual state of research, followed by three chapters, which explicate the conditions in the 12th century, differentiated geographically (alpine regions, Danube valley) and concerning the clientage (dukes, archbishops and bishops of Salzburg and Passau) as well. By this way the general tendencies and motives (Cistercian architecture of Heiligenkreuz and Zwettl; Patavian architecture at Göttweig, Kremsmünster, Vienna, St.Pölten, Tulln; architecture at Salzburg - cathedral of archbisphop Konrad III - Gurk, Seckau, Hartberg) are outlined, which dominated the further development. In the following first main part, which is describing the first half of 13th century, the important role of the Austrian sovereigns (duke Leopold VI and duke Friedrich II) as founders and benefactors of eminent church architecture is emphasized. With these works of art most actual influences of french gothic architecture came to Austria (Capella Speciosa at Klosterneuburg, cloisters at Lilienfeld and Heiligenkreuz). The quarrel in ecclesiastical policy between the Babenberg dukes of Austria and the bishops of Passau, concerning the plan to establich a further diocesy in Austria, caused a competition in the field of architecture between the two powers. Thus the bishops of Passau reconstructed their patronage churches (St.Pölten, Kremsmünster, Ardagger) in Austria in a sumptuous way. Besides this stylistically advanced architecture there existed also a building acitivity not to be neglected, which was supported by the lower aristocracy and the duke's officials, who also founded some monasteries and churches. These buildings were constructed by local workmen, who were following the traditional patterns of late romanic style (Baumgartenberg, Wilhering, Bad Deutsch Altenburg, Petronell). At the dawn of the Babenberg dynasty an important political intervention of emperor Friedrich II. von Hohenstaufen took place. Recent researches indicate that the reconstruction of St.Stephen's church in Vienna with the famous "Riesentor" with sculptural decorations in Norman Style was initiated by the emperor, even as the foundation of the castle at the place of the later Imperial Palace, which obviously followed the type of the emperor's fortresses in Sicily. In spite of the political agitations and upheavals in the middle of the century some remarkable works of architecture were created, as the castle of Starhemberg, the fortresses at the border to Hungary (Wienertor at Hainburg), St.Virgil's chapel at Vienna and the charnel house at Tulln), where different in

Abstract

Tandis que la restauration récente des portails de la cathédrale de Rouen nous invite à redécouvrir un exceptionnel décor sculpté, cette étude propose une approche renouvelée et des clés de compréhension pour en faciliter le « décryptage ». Pourquoi le portail des Libraires se couvre-t-il, à la fin du xiiie siècle, de près de 200 bas-reliefs figurant des animaux fabuleux et des créatures hybrides aux côtés de la Création du monde ou encore d’Adam et Ève ? Comment ce premier « modèle » rouennais a-t-il été repris au cours du xive siècle au portail méridional, celui de la Calende, mais aussi à la primatiale Saint-Jean de Lyon, à l’abbaye Saint-Ouen de Rouen et même au palais des papes en Avignon ? Quels enjeux artistiques, religieux, voire politiques expliquent ce succès à la fois imposant (plus de 860 bas-reliefs) et limité dans le temps (fin xiiie-milieu du xive siècle) ? Ouvrant des perspectives nouvelles dans le domaine de l’analyse iconographique, l’auteur conduit une véritable étude historique : la politique de prestige des grands prélats, la « mise en récit » des images sculptées au seuil des cathédrales, la culture des métamorphoses et l’incroyable inventivité des sculpteurs du Moyen Âge, le culte des saints au cœur des rivalités entre les sanctuaires...
