Please join us for our upcoming lecture!

Why Aren’t the Great Women Artists of Greece and Rome Better Known?

Dr. Kristen Seaman

Willamette University – 
Hatfield Library / Hatfield Room
900 Winter  Street
Salem, Oregon

In this illustrated lecture, Kristen Seaman reconstructs the roles of women artists in Greece and Rome by assembling evidence in literature, epigraphy, and visual culture. She considers how and why ancient and modern scholars have included or omitted them in their art-historical writing, and she traces the women’s places in schools of painting, retrieves their styles, and finds historical comparanda for their artistic, educational, and economic circumstances.

As usual, this lecture is free and open to the public!
