Friday, September 24th, 2021 - 19:00

Jones book launch invite

Launching at the seventh Feminist Art History Conference, this event will join in with the dialogue on feminist art-historical practice, one of the key goals of the conference.

This brand 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.
