Séverine GUILLET


Title:  PhD Student
Institution:  Cluster Pasts in the present


Takes part in the project:  Architecture, littérature, philosophie et société au tournant des Lumières : "L'Architecture considérée sous le rapport de l'Art des moeurs et de la législation" de Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, une édition numérique


For her master’s degree in art history at the École du Louvre, Séverine Guillet studied the notion of multiples and the question of the collaboration between painters and sculptors through the polychrome stucco reliefs in Antonio Rossellino’s work (1427-1479). For her PhD thesis at the University of Paris-Nanterre (ED 395, department HAR), she continues to reflect upon multiples in art history and upon the creation processes, but with a very different corpus : the architect Claude-Nicolas Ledoux’s etchings (1736-1806). Her research axes are the successive states of some etchings, the links between those etchings and Ledoux’s built work, the book as a creation area, and the relationship between architects and engravers. This thesis takes place in the LEDOUX project of the Labex les Passés dans le Présent, whose aim is the interpretation and a scientific edition of the architect’s editorial projet
