The past 30 years have seen an increased amount of scholarship about women who were artists and women who were either sponsors of art projects or purchasers of art objects between c. 1500 -1800. For the 12th Annual Art History Symposium at California State University, Sacramento (4/16/16), we welcome proposals for 20-minute papers that provide new information and/or insights about women artists, clients, or consumers in the 16th-18th centuries. The keynote address will be delivered by Sheryl E. Reiss, President of the Italian Art Society (“’Noble Exemplars of Their Sex’: Tomb Monuments Commissioned for and by Women during the Italian Renaissance”).
Send a 300-word proposal; a short biographical statement (one paragraph); and full contact information to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 22. Questions about the symposium may be addressed to Prof. Catherine Turrill (email@example.com).
