This notebook will be used to communicate and publish scientific and documentary resources throughout the ANR/DFG project “Une histoire croisée des plafonds peints : France-Allemagne, 1600-1800″/”Eine Verflechtungsgeschichte der Deckenmalerei in Frankreich und Deutschland 1600-1800” (coord. O. Bonfait and M. Burioni, Université de Bourgogne, Ludwig Maximilians Universität München, 01/05/2022-30/04/2025).
This project proposes to study the historical, cultural, formal and technical phenomenon of the multiplication of painted and sculpted ceiling decorations in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. The French and German fields lend themselves to this investigation: they have been the subject of numerous case studies over the past twenty years and now call for a vast undertaking to systematize the corpus and enrich the questionnaire. The time is right: databases have been created on both sides of the Rhine in recent years and it is urgent to initiate a reflection in order to adopt common digital tools, in order to gain in relevance and interoperability. The Franco-German project will not replace current initiatives, but rather enrich them by creating the conditions for a common reflection that will materialize in the creation of a portal on French and German ceilings. In addition to the inventory of decorations that will feed this portal, there will be an in-depth study, in the form of a micro-history, of twenty decorations that are representative of the variety of typologies, of commissioners, of the trials and tribulations of design, of the organization of construction sites, of the function of decoration in the representation of power, of the conditions of its visual effectiveness, of its role in the evolution of forms and discourses. Finally, the 3D modeling of six sets, existing or disappeared, will offer a field of experimentation to answer questions such as the passage from two to three dimensions (from design to execution). Such modeling also ensures that a wider audience will be interested in these sets and will foster a better understanding of them. A series of workshops around three research axes will ensure and reinforce the problematization of the approach throughout the duration of the project.
