Annelies Verellen (Art History) - Women’s Self-portraiture in the Seventeenth Century

Annelies studies women’s strategy of self-fashioning in the early modern period, specifically through their self-portraits. She examines the prejudices embedded within the practice of women looking at themselves in a mirror through vanitas prints and paintings. She is particularly interested in learning how women artists circumvented those prejudices in their self-portraits and how they came up with methods of self-representation that would avoid accusations of vanity or pride.
