We invite you to join us in celebrating Alison Kettering’s legacy and engage with the articles available online and for download.

The festschrift, edited by Dawn Odell and Jessica Buskirk, brings together articles by colleagues and former students writing on a range of topics from colonialism’s influence on Dutch art and a scientific and artistic collaboration in the 17th century, to several essays on Rembrandt and more.
