H. Perry Chapman, Professor, Department of Art History, studies the art and material and visual culture of the Dutch seventeenth century. The author of Rembrandt’s Self-Portraits: A Study in Seventeenth-Century Identity and co-curator and co-author Jan Steen: Painter and Storyteller (National Gallery, Washington/Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), Chapman studies the social lives of artists and the material culture of the artist’s studio. She has written about the culture of the Dutch home and the rise of domesticity in the seventeenth century. Her interests in home and studio have led her to write, most recently, about Rembrandt’s house as a site of display, both for the artist and as a historic house museum today.
