The sumptuous paintings of Stefan Lochner (d. Cologne 1451) are among the most familiar yet least understood images of the late Middle Ages. This book explores Lochner's oeuvre from various vantage points. Tracing current conceptions of the artist back to the earliest recorded testimonies, it first reviews Lochner's changing critical fortunes. A perceptual account of Lochner's major paintings and illuminated manuscripts follows, clarifying the artist's passion for the nature of representation and the different ways in which he engages the viewer. In addition, study of Lochner's works by means of infrared reflectography reveals a draftsman of the first order: his complex underdrawings foreshadow Martin Schongauer's graphic style of forty years later. The first monograph on Stefan Lochner since 1938, this book as illustrated with 69 color plates and 225 black-and-white reproductions; it includes a bibliography and index.
Ces Actes du Colloque XV pour l'etude du dessin sous-jacent et de la technologie dans la peinture (Bruges, 11-13 septembre 2003), reunissent trente-six etudes traitant d'oeuvres d'art flamand, espagnol, portugais, italien et francais. Ces etudes sont suivies, comme dans les Actes precedents, d'une bibliographie de l'infrarouge.Depuis de nombreuses annees on sait que la peinture ancienne est constituee - outre d'oeuvres dites "originales" - de copies, de repliques et de pastiches, produites dans des ateliers actifs qui faisaient appel a des collaborations. Les bases sur lesquelles on avait fonde jadis les catalogues des maitres sont ebranlees. De nombreuses attributions doivent etre revues. Les auteurs du present volume ont porte leur effort dans ce sens, examinant d'un oeil critique le statut des peintures et les indices qui permettent de reconnaitre l'original de la copie. Certains auteurs traitent de procedes de copies, de l'usage de cartons, modeles et papiers perfores, mais egalement de couleurs, d'encres, d'enduits, de technique picturale ... D'autres auteurs tentent de preciser le nombre de collaborateurs dans les ateliers. D'autres encore s'interessent a une methode d'examen, comme la radiographie, pour l'exploiter afin de distinguer au mieux la main du maitre de celle du copiste.
