The lecture will consider Jutta Koether’s novel pictorial practice by focusing on the notion of the painter’s studio. It was in Romanticism that the painter’s workplace came to be understood not only the actual site of artistic production but also an imaginary space of, specifically, male creativity. Reaching back to Romanticism–in particular, to the work of Delacroix–the lecture will illuminate Koether’s reinvention of painting as a woman’s practice.
