Jennifer Germann, Associate Professor of Art History, has been named a Regional Fellow for the Institute for European Studies at Cornell University and presented her most recent research at the Fellows Showcase on October 18. 

Germann’s paper, “Peaches and Pearls: Materializing Metaphors of Race in Eighteenth-Century British Art,” analyzed the metaphor invoked by Jonathan Richardson comparing the representation of flesh in paintings to “a Pearl, and a ripe Peach” to understand how ideas about race were translated into a visual idioms through artistic practice. This paper is a part of her ongoing research into the Portrait of Dido Elizabeth Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray, painted during the 1770s.
