Event Details

University of Florida Art History Professor Melissa Hyde will present a lecture, “Becoming a Woman Artist in Eighteenth-Century France,” as a guest of the Department of Modern Languages on Friday, February 17 at 1:30 pm in G40 WJB. The lecture is sponsored by the Winthrop-King Institute for Contemporary French and Francophone Studies, and will be followed by a reception with light refreshments in the WJB atrium; the Modern Languages department cordially invites interested Art History students and faculty to participate.

Hyde specializes in 18th- and 19th-century European art, with an emphasis on cultural history, gender studies, feminist theory, and the history of art criticism. She is the author of Making Up the Rococo: François Boucher and his Critics (2006, Getty Publications), and co-editor of Rococo Echo: Art, Theory and Historiography from Cochin to Coppola (London: Courtauld, 2014). Hyde is currently completing two book projects, Painted by Herself: Marie-Suzanne Roslin, the Forgotten Académicienne; and Women in French Art: Rococo to Romanticism 1750-1830, co-authored with Mary D. Sheriff.  The proposal for the latter won the inaugural Mellor Prize, an award bestowed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA).
