Sounding Her Fame: Dutch Women Artists of the Seventeenth Century

Online event: 3 March 2022

In anticipation of a major exhibition on Dutch and Flemish women artists, scheduled to be held in 2025 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C., this webinar will provide an engaging look at the many fascinating issues surrounding this topic. Who were these woman artists, and what were their family and social backgrounds? Where did they train and how were they received by the broader artistic community? What distinguished a professional from someone who pursued creative outlets in her life? Aside from painting, etching, and drawing, what other creative/artistic avenues, such as lace-making and embroidery, did women pursue?
