UA Art Historian to Speak on Early Modern Female Makers

Join Dr. Tanja L. Jones for the launch of her new edited volume Women Artists in the Early Modern Courts of Europe and a Zoom talk with Jones and fellow scholars, Friday, September 24, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. CDT (19:00 PM Central European Summer Time). With Dr. Jones will be scholars and chapter contributors Catherine Hall-van den Elsen, Adelina Modesti, and Maria Maurer

The Zoom talk and book launch will celebrate the publication of Women Artists in the Early Modern Courts of Europe: c. 1450-1700, edited by Dr. Jones. This new volume presents the first collection of essays dedicated to women as producers of visual and material culture in the Early Modern European courts. Chapters address works by women who occupied a range of social and economic positions within and around the courts and across media, including paintings, sculpture, prints, and textiles.

The discussions at this event will show how the texts in the book deepen understanding of the individual artists and courts highlighted and, more broadly, will consider the variety of experiences of female makers across traditional geographic and chronological distinctions.
