About The Event

Anne  Vallayer-Coster (1744-1818) was twenty-five years old when she was  admitted to the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in  Paris--one of only four women in the late eighteenth century. Throughout  the course of her career, Vallayer-Coster painted dozens of sensual  still-life paintings, representing flowers, shells and minerals, guns  and game. She also produced large, complex allegories of art, nature,  and war. In this webinar, we will study the range of textures that  Vallayer-Coster depicted, and discuss the perceived "femininity" of her  subject matter and painting techniques.

Dr.  Kelsey Brosnan earned her PhD in Art History at Rutgers University with  a dissertation entitled "Seductive Surfaces: The Still-Life Paintings  of Anne Vallayer-Coster (1744-1818)." Now in the Impressionist and  Modern Art Department at Christie's, she has previously worked at the  Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Art  History Department at the University of Vermont.
