    Construction Techniques and Writings on Architecture in Renaissance and Early Modern Europe

    Thematic issue of the journal Opus Incertum (Florence University Press)

    The 2020 issue of the open access journal Opus Incertum (Florence University Press) aims to examine, through selected case studies, the complex relationship between construction practices and architectural writings in Renaissance and early modern Europe. Situated at the crossroads of several disciplines (architectural history, history of science and technology, history of literature), the subject can be approached from different perspectives. To begin with, confrontations of texts on construction techniques with the material realities of extant buildings may reveal, for specific contexts, to what extent these texts operated as vehicles for the transmission of technical know-how, and how much weight they gave to topoi borrowed from ancient authors.

    The life and survival of decorative motifs (1550-1789)

    Cette journée d'études doctorales est l'occasion d'interroger la survivance de certains motifs dans l'œuvre d'art de la période moderne, de 1550 à 1789. En effet, un certain nombre de motifs iconographiques récurrents dans l’œuvre posent question. Il s'agit de définir le motif, quelque soit sa nature, de son origine jusqu'à ses usages les plus tardifs, afin de proposer une réflexion sur le statut et la fonction du motif ainsi que sur ses modalités de réception et les modifications d'interprétation au cours du temps.
