Abstract

Les acadèmies de belles arts han estat unes de les institucions més importants en l’esfera cultural dels darrers segles a Occident, com a centres formadors i també com a organismes reguladors de la pràctica artística. Les contribucions aplegades en aquest volum busquen incidir en aspectes com l’evolució dels paradigmes estètics impulsats des de cada entitat, les relacions nacionals i internacionals amb altres institucions, la formació impartida o el funcionament dels centres i els seus protagonistes. Amb l’estímul d’unes jornades organitzades pel grup de recerca GRACMON en col·laboració amb la Reial Acadèmia Catalana de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi, Acadèmia i art proposa noves interpretacions i vies de lectura entorn de les acadèmies fomentant el debat sobre el paper que tenen en el present i que hauran de tenir en el futur.

Abstract

Die Kunstsammlung der Universität Göttingen ist vor allem für ihren Bestand an Niederländischer Kunst des 17. Jahrhunderts bekannt. Dass sie darüber hinaus auch eine Kollektion von Gemälden des 19. Jahrhunderts umfasst, die einige wirkliche Schätze enthält, gleicht einer Neuentdeckung. Diese Kollektion wird hier erstmals in einem eigenen Bestandskatalog vorgestellt. Obwohl es sich um eine eher kleine Sammlung handelt, erweist sich diese doch als erstaunlich repräsentativ, um das Kunstverständnis des 19. Jahrhunderts mit seinen wechselnden Prämissen sowie kunsttheoretischen und künstlerischen Auseinandersetzungen an konkreten Kunstwerken aufzuzeigen. Eine zentrale Rolle spielt dabei die Gattungstheorie: Die seit der Frühen Neuzeit vertretene Ausdifferenzierung der Malerei in profane und religiöse Historie, Genre, Landschaft, Stillleben, Tierstück und Porträt wurde über das gesamte 19. Jahrhundert hinweg kontrovers diskutiert, blieb aber als wertsetzendes System lange präsent. Der vorliegende, von Dozenten und Studierenden des Kunstgeschichtlichen Seminars der Universität Göttingen gemeinsam erarbeitete Bestandskatalog nutzt die Gattungstheorie als „roten Faden“, um eine historische Perspektive auf den Bestand der Gemälde des 19. Jahrhunderts in der Göttinger Universitätskunstsammlung anzubieten.

Abstract

Nei ruggenti anni Cinquanta, in pieno miracolo economico, Alberto Martini, appena laureatosi a Firenze con Roberto Longhi, si avviava al mestiere di storico dell’arte. Una disciplina che di lì a pochi anni il giovane avrebbe rivoluzionato, entrando nelle case degli italiani grazie ai mitici «Maestri del Colore» Fabbri Editori. Progetto che gli aveva permesso di girare il mondo e di accumulare una serie di contatti con direttori e funzionari di musei, in un raggio d’azione internazionale: strabilianti viaggi per dirigere le campagne fotografiche, finalmente a colori, delle opere da riprodurre nella fortunata collana. Al grande cantiere divulgativo aveva affiancato rilevanti studi scientifici, dalle indagini sul Trecento riminese alla chiarificazione delle tappe nella carriera giovanile di Bartolomeo della Gatta. Dal 1962 Martini avrebbe instaurato un legame profondo con Alberto Giacometti, sul quale avrebbe messo a fuoco, di lì a poco, l’analisi più acuta e lucida espressa fino a quel momento dalla critica italiana. Il volume offre una biografia intellettuale del personaggio, con documenti e carteggi inediti, ripercorrendo le tappe della sua carriera, scandita dalle poliedriche esperienze che un giovane storico dell’arte intraprendente poteva accumulare nell’Italia prolifica degli anni del boom economico, radio e televisione comprese.

Abstract

Come Adolfo Venturi e Corrado Ricci, Alessandro Baudi di Vesme (1854-1923) appartenne all’ultima generazione di studiosi e funzionari autodidatti che lavorò, tra Otto e Novecento, al delicato processo di affermazione della disciplina storico-artistica in Italia. Storico direttore della Regia Pinacoteca di Torino e primo soprintendente alle gallerie e agli ggetti d’arte del Piemonte e della Liguria, Vesme affiancò ai propri impegni istituzionali un’intensa attività di studio della cultura figurativa locale con uno sguardo privilegiato sulle vicende della pittura del Quattro e Cinquecento, in pieno allineamento agli indirizzi del dibattito storiografico europeo di quegli anni. Sottese da una prospettiva di riabilitazione culturale volta a riscattare la regione subalpina dal novero delle periferie dell’arte, quelle indagini diedero vita a un progetto di edizione filologica delle fonti che ancora oggi è considerato il riferimento documentario per eccellenza nell’ambito della storia delle arti in Piemonte: le Schede Vesme, pubblicate postume tra il 1963 e il 1982. Il volume ripercorre il profilo critico e professionale del loro estensore attraverso il filo dell’interazione reciproca tra i piani di ricerca e le iniziative di tutela da lui promosse, rapportando e legittimando le sue esperienze individuali alla luce del confronto con gli interlocutori italiani e stranieri e le istanze, i metodi e le peculiarità del contesto piemontese.

Abstract

This book treats the spectacular rise in life expectancy during the last three centuries. It is the first study to bring together both published and unpublished material about the history of the health of Belgian men and women and to analyze it critically. Isabelle Devos studies the mechanisms of the historic fall in the death rate in an original manner and answers the question why research on the causes of this decline has not progressed faster. While the discipline of historical demography orients the first part of her book, the discipline of historical epidemiology provides the perspective taken in the second part, in which the role of insects as spreaders of disease is explored. Essential in her study is the importance of local medical practitioners who already at the end of the Ancien Régime warned of the dangers present in the environment. Their ‘ecological’ thinking created a consciousness that was decisive for the further development of healthcare.

Abstract

Weshalb gibt es eine Geschichte der Fotografie, jedoch keine des Fotogramms? Ausgehend von einer Analyse der Fotografie-Historiografie, die Fotogrammarbeiten in eine Vorgeschichte verlagert, widmet sich die Publikation insbesondere dem Ausschluss von Frauen als Produzentinnen kameraloser Fotografien: technizistisch wie kunsthistorisch geprägte Fotografie-Geschichten rückten männlich kodierte Meisterwerke in den Vordergrund. Mithilfe der Geschlechtergeschichte und feministischen Wissenschaftskritik bricht die Untersuchung solch objektivierende Meister-Erzählungen jedoch auf und macht blinde Flecken sichtbar . Unter Einbeziehung zahlreicher Fallstudien arbeitet sie abseits gängiger Historisierungsweisen die historische Relevanz dieses bisher vernachlässigten Mediums heraus.

Abstract

"An Archaeology of Art and Writing offers an in-depth treatment of the image as material culture. Centring on early Egyptian bone, ivory, and wooden labels—one of the earliest inscribed and decorated object groups from burials in the lower Nile Valley—the research is anchored in the image as the site of material action. A key aim of this book is to outline a contextual and reflexive approach to early art and writing as a complement to the traditional focus on iconographic and linguistic meanings. Archaeological and anthropological approaches are integrated with social theories of practice and agency to develop a more holistic perspective that situates early Egyptian imagery in relation to its manufacture, use and final deposition in the funerary context. The dialectical relationships between past embodied practitioners and materials, production techniques, and compositional principles are examined for the insight they provide into changes and continuities in early Egyptian graphical expression across time and space. The electronic version of this book is accompanied by an online database of the inscribed labels, enabling the reader to explore via hyperlinks the fascinating body of evidence that underpins this innovative study. Kathryn Piquette lectures on the archaeology of ancient Egypt and the Near East at the University of Reading. She also lectures in digital humanities at University College London, where she serves as a senior research consultant in advanced digital imaging techniques for cultural heritage. Recent publications include the co-edited Writing as Material Practice: Substance, surface and medium."

Abstract

Western Arnhem Land, in the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory, has a rich archaeological landscape, ethnographic record and body of rock art that displays an astonishing array of imagery on shelter walls and ceilings. While the archaeology goes back to the earliest period of Aboriginal occupation of the continent, the rock art represents some of the richest, most diverse and visually most impressive regional assemblages anywhere in the world. To better understand this multi-dimensional cultural record, The Archaeology of Rock Art in Western Arnhem Land, Australia focuses on the nature and antiquity of the region’s rock art as revealed by archaeological surveys and excavations, and the application of novel analytical methods. This volume also presents new findings by which to rethink how Aboriginal peoples have socially engaged in and with places across western Arnhem Land, from the north to the south, from the plains to the spectacular rocky landscapes of the plateau. The dynamic nature of Arnhem Land rock art is explored and articulated in innovative ways that shed new light on the region’s deep time Aboriginal history.

Abstract

ation such as the registry, the library, and the armoury, but also in the Cabinet of Curiosities, or in the architect’s personal archive. Even with only a small number of known approaches theorizing architectural drawings and design practices during the 16th century, it is possible to reveal a broad influence on drawing theories, especially by perspective treatises and the so-called »Visier- und Messkunst« (measuring). Reconstructing the various places of producing, collecting, displaying, and studying architectural drawings shows that architectural drawings were a crucial part in cultural processes of understanding, organizing, and dealing with the built environment.

Abstract

In this study of Amsterdam's Golden Age cultural elite, John Michael Montias analyzes records of auctions from the Orphan Chamber of Amsterdam through the first half of the seventeenth century, revealing a wealth of information on some 2,000 art buyers' regional origins, social and religious affiliations, wealth, and aesthetic preferences. Chapters focus not only on the art dealers who bought at these auctions, but also on buyers who had special connections with individual artists.
