As in previous meetings, this workshop will feature short informal presentations followed by discussion. Our line-up includes:
Stephanie Bernard, ‘Juan Sánchez Cotán’s ‘Adoration of the Magi’ and the Taste for Ancient Models’. Stephanie is PhD candidate in Art History in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. Her thesis, funded by a Zurbarán Scholarship, explores the influence of Flemish and Netherlandish art in the oeuvre of Juan Sánchez Cotán. Her research benefits from the inter-disciplinary nature of the Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art and from a collaboration with the Spanish Gallery at the Auckland Project.
Julia Vázquez, ‘Towards a History of the Curator’. Julia is Curatorial Fellow for the Marisol Bequest and Curator of the Marisol Paper Project at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. She received her PhD from Columbia University in 2020 and has just completed a book manuscript titled “Velázquez: Painter and Curator.”
Elisabetta Maistri, ‘In the folds of art historiography. The parallel lifes of Julián de Villalba and García and José Nicolás de Azara, two aragonese diplomats in the eternal city’. Elisabetta is an art historian in fieri, specialising in Iberian art history (16 th -19 th cent) and history of European art collecting. She holds a BA from the Università degli Studi di Padova (2012), two MA from the Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia (2015 & 2017), and a PgDip in art registrations from the Istituto Europeo del Design (2016). Since 2018 she is a doctoral student in History of art at Durham University thanks to an AHRC Northern Bridge Consortium scholarship.
Our sessions are open to all, and research in early stages of development is especially welcome.
