O revivalismo medieval pelas lentes do gênero: as fotografias De Julia Margaret Cameron para a obra the Idylls of the King e outros poemas de Alfred Tennyson

Maria Cristina Pereira

Resumo


Pioneira na arte da fotografia, Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) produziu centenas de retratos e tableaux vivants. Estes últimos, embora inseridos no movimento Pré-Rafaelita então em voga na Inglaterra, davam mostra de uma visão da Idade Média um pouco distinta da que seus contemporâneos ajudaram a construir: menos heroica e mais íntima, com grande quantidade e protagonismo de mulheres. A fim de estudar suas ideias a esse respeito, analisaremos neste artigo um conjunto de imagens feitas por ela em 1874 para a obra The Idylls of the King, de Alfred Tennyson, com histórias da corte do rei Artur (além de cinco outros poemas também marcados pelo medievalismo), e faremos comparações com outro conjunto de imagens feitas para aquela mesma obra: as 36 gravuras que o ilustrador francês Gustave Doré publicou entre 1867 e 1868
