Warmest Wishes

Posted in site information by Editor on December 23, 2009

With the semester over, grades turned in, and a day to catch my breath before Christmas, I won’t be posting as regularly during the next two weeks. By all means, though, please continue to send any announcements or news items you may have. Thanks so much for your support of Enfilade and all the best for whatever moments of peace you can squeeze in before the new year!

Mary Vidal Awards Announced and a Year-End Appeal

Posted in Member News by Editor on December 23, 2009

As 2009 comes to an end, I hope that you’ll consider joining the Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture, renewing your membership for 2010, or making an additional contribution. Among other things, your dues help fund the Dora Wiebenson Prize and the Mary Vidal Memorial Fund. Within the latter category, HECAA is pleased to announce awards for the following young scholars:

  • Amber Ludwig (Ph.D. candidate, Boston University) will be using funds to defray costs incurred in presenting her research on Emma Hamilton at CAA and ASECS in 2010.
  • Sally Grant (Ph.D. student, University of Sydney) will use funds to defray expenses as she travels to ASECS in Albuquerque to present her paper “The World in the Venetian Countryside: The Tiepolos at the Villa Valmarana ai Nani.”
  • Anne-Louise Gonçalves Fonseca (Ph.D. University of Montréal, 2008) will be able to defray costs for travel to ASECS, where she will present her paper “Mythological Painting in Eighteenth-Century Portugal: Models, Nudity, and Patronage.”

So please take a moment now to renew your membership or make an additional contribution. You can submit memberships and donations via PayPal by clicking here or via check made payable to ‘HECAA’ and mailed to me at the following address. Best wishes for a festive (and productive) holiday season and new year!
