Jennifer Germann, Assistant Professor of Art History, presented
a paper titled "The Queen's New Image: Jean-Marc Nattier's Portrait
of Marie Leszczinska (1748)" at the Society for Court Studies
meeting in July. The topic of the international conference, held at
the University of Winchester in Great Britain, was Kings and Queens
II: Making Connections. Germann's paper explored gift giving and
political intrigue at the French court.
