During the spring 2018 semester Professor Diane Wolfthal co-taught Looking at European Prints 1400-1700 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, along with Dena M. Woodall, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings. Students gained a thorough historical understanding of prints by major masters such as Schongauer, Mantegna, Düer, and Rembrandt while exploring key issues in the study of prints, such as how they revolutionized European culture, their patronage, markets, functions, and techniques. The course was open to undergraduate students and gave them an opportunity to view works in the museum's collection first-hand.
Diane Wolfthal, the David and Caroline Minter Chair of Humanities and Professor of Art History, specializes in late medieval and early modern European art. Her interests include feminist and gender studies, Jewish Studies, the history of sexuality, technical art history, and the study of the intersection of money, values, and culture.
