Majoliques et bronzes à la National Gallery of Arts

Workshop of Maestro Giorgio Andreoli of Gubbio; painting attributed to the Painter of the Three Graces
Plate with the reconciliation of Cupid and Minerva, 1525

tin-glazed earthenware (maiolica) overall (diameter): 26 cm (10 1/4 in.)
National Gallery of Art, Washington, Widener Collection

L'exposition Partager des Images : Les gravures de la Renaissance dans la Majolique et le Bronze traite de thèmes plus souvent réservés aux communications byzantines dans des colloques spécialisés qu'aux salles d'exposition des grande institutions comme la National Gallery of Art de Washington.
En l'occurrence, il s'agit d'étudier à travers 90 objets :
- 1) la redécouverte de l'art antique et de sa représentation au début du XVème siècle
- 2) la circulation et l'utilisation de gravures comme modèles pour la décoration des faïences ou des plaquettes de bronze pendant la Renaissance italienne.
Cependant, rien n'interdit de méditer sur la manière dont ces artisans ont procédé pour intégrer un rectangle imprimé dans le cercle d'une assiette. C'est le choix que j'ai fait !
Ou tout simplement se laisser aller à contempler ces chefs-d'oeuvre...

Commissaire de l'exposition : Jamie Gabbarelli, assistant curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum.
