Armures et portraits de Princes entre Italie et France, XVIe-XVIIIe siècle

Abstract : The portrait exists since the medieval time, however it is with the context and the development of arts, artists and their techniques that gradually the portrait defines itself and complicates in the XV-XVIth century. With these novelties the portrait of the XVIth century is transformed: we pass of a portrait which had to make present, re introduce someone, to a more intimist portrait (small-sizes, in bust). During that same century this portrait spreads in the princely courts and court portraiture quickly born. Then under the influence of the painters and some theories it evolves into a portrait of State (the sovereign is represented at the middle-body or in foot, with the royal attributes, in large format). During the second half of the XVIth century the Princes insert a new element : the armor. It is this phenomenon and its meaning, its consequences for the power but also for the artists and the craftsmen that this report will try to study,in the Italian States and France.
