A Genius Rescued from Oblivion

Individual visitors - Lecture

A lecture by Prof. Dr. Katlijne Van der Stighelen (KU Leuven) on 24 June 2018
In June 2018 the first retrospective exhibition of the work of Michaelina Wautier was held at the MAS, Antwerp. Paintings, prints and drawings illustrated the exceptional talent of this mysterious painter, who lived and worked in Brussels around 1650. The lecture gave an overview of her oeuvre as well as tried to answer the question as to why she was all but forgotten.

The lecture was held in Dutch.

With the support of the Baillet Latour Fund.
