Further Afield | Feminist Art History: Medieval to Museums

April 12 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm CDT

Free to Paid

Jitske Jasperse, professor, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin
Further Afield virtual talks provides broader social, political, economic, and historical context for works of art at the museum. This spring Further Afield focuses on women as creators and patrons in Spain from medieval to modern times.

In 1962, the art historian H.W. Janson banned women from his famous handbook The History of Art, writing them out of a broadly distributed text that influenced the art historical canon. Today, thanks to the many art historians and artists who have focused on women artists, we have a rich body of scholarship in feminist art history. This talk will focus on women artists—including Francisca Efigenia Meléndez y Durazzo, whose work is in the Meadows’s collection—and present key ideas within feminist art history. It will also address stunning medieval textiles at San Isidoro de Léon, Spain, demonstrating the multiple ways that medieval women were, in fact, makers of art.
