La Nativité italienne. Une histoire d’adoration (1250-1450)

Abstract : My research scrutinizes the iconography of Christ's Nativity in italian medieval painting, dealing with 300 images, ranging from small altarpieces for private devotion to major fresco cycles. It starts around 1250, with the generation of painters who were teachers to Giotto and Duccio, and it ends around 1450, with the works of Beato Angelico and Filippo Lippi. My aim is to provide a complete study of each figure's evolution (Mary, Jesus, Joseph, the ox and ass, the shepherds, the midwives, etc.) and of the scene as a whole. The increasing proportion of kneeling figures – the adoratio flexis genibus – in the scene testifies the evolution of devotional practices and the use of images for praying.
