REMBRANDT Minerva c.1630

via

Rembrandt van Rijn (en néerlandais), habituellement désigné sous son seul prénom de Rembrandt (1606/1607-1669) est généralement considéré comme l'un des plus grands peintres de l'histoire de la peinture, notamment de la peinture baroque, et l'un des plus importants peintres de l'École hollandaise du XVIIe siècle. Rembrandt a également réalisé des gravures et des dessins et est l'un des plus importants aquafortistes de l'histoire. Il a vécu pendant ce que les historiens appellent le siècle d'or néerlandais, durant lequel culture, science, commerce et influence politique des Pays-Bas ont atteint leur apogée.

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606/1607-1669) was a Dutch draughtsman, painter, and printmaker. A prolific and versatile master across three media, he is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art and the most important in Dutch art history. Unlike most Dutch Masters of the 17th century, Rembrandt's works depict a wide range of style and subject matter, from portraits, self-portraits, to landscapes, genre scenes, allegorical and historical scenes, biblical and mythological themes as well as animal studies. His contributions to art came in a period of great wealth and cultural achievement that historians call the Dutch Golden Age when Dutch Golden Age painting, although in many ways antithetical to the Baroque style that dominated Europe, was extremely prolific and innovative, and gave rise to important new genres in painting.

CUZCO SCHOOL Flagellation of Christ





via

L'École de Cuzco (escuela cusqueña) est un mouvement artistique catholique qui s'est développée dans le vice-royaume du Pérou au cours des XVIe et XVIIIe siècles, et notamment à Cuzco (ancienne capitale de l'Empire inca), mais également dans d'autres villes des Andes, en Bolivie et en Équateur.

The Cuzco School (Escuela Cuzqueña) was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial period, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. It was not limited to Cuzco only, but spread to other cities in the Andes, as well as to present day Ecuador and Bolivia.

Le christ à la colonne ou la flagellation du Christ -  à rapprocher de l’Ecole de Cuzco fin XVIe - début XVIIe - Mouvement maniériste.

La flagellation du Christ, ou le Christ à la colonne est un épisode néo-testamentaire de la Passion de Jésus raconté dans les Évangiles qui a donné lieu à de nombreuses représentations artistiques : tableaux, fresques, sculptures, etc. depuis le début de l'ère chrétienne.

La flagellation a lieu avant la montée au Golgotha. La colonne contre laquelle le Christ fut flagellé est l'un des instruments de la Passion ou Arma Christi et plusieurs églises revendiquent de posséder un morceau de cette colonne, dont la basilique Sainte-Praxède à Rome.

Cet épisode est le sujet de la sixième station du chemin de Croix scripturaire préconisé par le pape Jean-Paul II pour les catholiques.

Très rares sont les représentations du Christ comme celle de notre tableau, à ce jour seules 3 ont été recensées en Europe.

L’iconographie du Christ en Croix portant un pagne long, entouré de quatre cierges et de grands bouquets de fleurs colorées correspond au style de l’école de Cuzco au XVIIe siècle. Il s’agirait d’une représentation syncrétique entre une iconographie chrétienne et des éléments de décor incas.

It was not limited to Cuzco only, but spread to other cities in the Andes, as well as to present day Ecuador and Bolivia.

Master of Calamarca (fl. first half of 18th century) was a Bolivian artist who created two series of angels painted on the walls of a catholic church in Calamarca, Bolivia in the Department of La Paz. His works were stylistically close to earlier master Leonardo Flores from La Paz (fl. last quarter of 17th century).

An arquebusier angel (ángel arcabucero) is an angel depicted with an arquebus (an early muzzle-loaded firearm) instead of the sword traditional for martial angels, dressed in clothing inspired by that of the Andean nobles and aristocrats. The style arose in the Viceroyalty of Peru in the second half of 17th century and was especially prevalent in the Cuzco School.
