About this Event
Joyce de Vries earned her PhD in Italian Renaissance art history from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her specialty is the visual and material culture of early modern (1400-1700) Italy, and, in particular, material culture in the domestic sphere and the visual construction of gender.
de Vries will discuss her book, Caterina Sforza and the Art of Appearances: Gender, Art, and Culture in Early Modern Italy (Ashgate, 2010), which explores a ruling noblewoman's patronage and collecting practices and the ways she harnessed culture to stretch accepted gender roles.
