Jim Welu Lecture: Judith Leyster: A Woman Painter in a Man’s World
The most famous woman painter of the Dutch golden age, Judith Leyster competed in a profession dominated by men. She was the only female member of the painters’ guild known to have had a workshop and the only woman painter whose work attests to an active role in the art market. Her career was cut short when she married the painter Jan Miense Molenaer. As a result, Leyster’s oeuvre is relatively small; yet in subject and style her scenes of everyday life rank among the finest of the seventeenth century. This lecture by James Welu, Director Emeritus of the Worcester Art Museum, who initiated the first exhibition of Leyster’s work (1993) explores the many achievements of this pioneering Dutch master and the exciting world in which she lived.
