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.

Abstract

Quels que soient le lieu ou la civilisation que l’on explore, des relations profondes entre religion et art se décèlent. L’art traduit volontiers les aspects des fonctions religieuses, soit dans le cadre organisé d’un rituel, soit plus spontanément, dans l’expression de la foi personnelle ou collective. Les religions font appel aux artistes pour rendre apparent et intelligible l’invisible mais se heurtent souvent à eux en leur imposant des formes. Mais si bien des civilisations ont fait l’objet d’études fouillées sur la manière dont elles articulaient l’art et la religion, force est de constater que très peu de chercheurs se sont attelés à une vue transversale de ces notions. Cet ouvrage s’inscrit dès lors dans une perspective comparative ayant pour but de souligner les diachronies et les spécificités religieuses.

Abstract

In this challenging and erudite philosophical essay, the author argues that in art, belief in progress is still relevant, if not essential. The radical freedoms of postmodernism have had a crippling effect on art - more than ever before, art is in danger of becoming meaningless. Art can only acquire meaning through context, and the concept of progress is ideal as the primary criterion for establishing that context. History of art can be seen as a process of constant accumulation. Works of art comment on each other, enriching each other's meanings. These complex interrelationships lead to progress in both the sensibility of the observer and the significance of the works of art.

Abstract

This Special Issue of Arts investigates the use of digital methods in the study of art markets and their histories. As historical and contemporary data is rapidly becoming more available, and digital technologies are becoming integral to research in the humanities and social sciences, we sought to bring together contributions that reflect on the different strategies that art market scholars employ to navigate and negotiate digital techniques and resources. The essays in this issue cover a wide range of topics and research questions. Taken together, the essays offer a reflection on what takes to research art markets, which includes addressing difficult topics such as the nature of the research questions and the data available to us, and the conceptual aspects of art markets, in order to define and operationalize variables and to interpret visual and statistical patterns for scholarship. In our view, this discussion is enriched when also taking into account how to use shared or interoperable ontologies and vocabularies to define concepts and relationships that facilitate the use and exchange of linked (open) data for cultural heritage and historical research.

Abstract

The papers in this volume derive from the proceedings of the nineteenth International Bronze Congress, held at the Getty Center and Villa in October 2015 in connection with the exhibition Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World. The study of large-scale ancient bronzes has long focused on aspects of technology and production. Analytical work of materials, processes, and techniques has significantly enriched our understanding of the medium. Most recently, the restoration history of bronzes has established itself as a distinct area of investigation. How does this scholarship bear on the understanding of bronzes within the wider history of ancient art? How do these technical data relate to our ideas of styles and development? How has the material itself affected ancient and modern perceptions of form, value, and status of works of art?

Abstract

In the period of Modernisme nature came to the fore as a boundless source of artistic inspiration. Influenced by the cult of nature, creators produced a poetic, symbolic, dreamlike set of images and ideas; at the same time, scientists, experiencing the reper­cussions of Darwinism, were initiating the debate between creationists and evolutionists. Anti-mate­rialistic and idealistic thinking, which in some cases had coincided with the postulates of the theories of evolution, shaped the framework of sensibilities of the Symbolist movement, in which the landscapes of the soul ranged from approaching the unconscious to voyaging to unexplored islands. This book, an in-depth study of the interrelationship between the arts and nature, embraces all of these phenomena from a plural, organic point of view.

Abstract

A l’època del modernisme la natura es va refermar com a font inexhaurible d’inspiració artística. Influïts pel culte a la natura, els creadors van configurar un imaginari poètic, simbòlic i oníric, mentre els científics, que vivien la repercussió del darwinisme, encetaven el debat entre creacionistes i evolucionistes. D’altra banda, els plantejaments antimaterialistes i idealistes, que, en alguns casos, havien coincidit amb els postulats de les teories de l’evolució, van conformar el marc de sensibilitats del moviment simbolista, en què els paisatges de l’ànima s’estenien des de l’aproximació a l’inconscient fins al viatge a illes inexplorades. Aquesta obra, que aprofundeix en la interrelació entre les arts i la naturalesa, integra tots aquests fenòmens des d’una òptica plural i orgànica.
