EndormisLe sommeil profond et ses métaphores dans l'art de la Renaissance

Marina Seretti - Endormis
A critical and nuanced overview of the figures of the sleeping in the art and thought of the Renaissance, a source of inspiration for artists—Mantegna, Dürer, Brughel, Michelangelo or Tintoretto—as well as theologians, doctors and philosophers (from Aristotle to Zwingli, via Augustine and Montaigne), beyond the negative definition and the traditional condemnation of inactivity and unconciousness.
Marina Seretti is a lecturer in philosophy at the University of Bordeaux-Montaigne, specializing in aesthetics and philosophy of art.
Preface by Nadège Laneyrie-Dagen.
