Susan Rather, Associate Chair, Professor of Art History, University of Texas at Austin
Rather will examine the status of artists from different geographical, professional, and material perspectives and will delve into such topics as portrait painting in Boston and London; the trade of art in Philadelphia and New York; and the shifting representation of artists in and from the former British colonies after the Revolutionary War.
