Please join us for the latest in our series of Remarkable Women Lectures with LEH Alumnae Letizia Treves, The James and Sarah Sassoon Curator of Later Italian, Spanish, and French 17th-Century Paintings, The National Gallery.
We are delighted to welcome the art historian Letizia Treves back to LEH for our latest Remarkable Women Lecture. After leaving LEH, Letizia studied French / Italian and History of Art at Cambridge, followed by an MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute in London. Letizia was a Senior Director of Sotheby's Old Master Paintings Department before joining the National Gallery as Curator of Italian Paintings 1600-1800 in 2013.
Letizia will be discussing her career and various aspects of her role as curator, including the National Gallery's recent acquisition of a painting by Artemisia Gentileschi, the most celebrated female artist of the 17th century. After a five month conservation treatment, the National Gallery recently unveiled Artemisia Gentileschi's Self-Portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria, which will visit a number of locations across the country later this year. The self-portrait will be a highlight in the UK's first ever exhibition devoted to the artist, opening in April 2020 at the National Gallery and curated by Letizia Treves.
