Art Talk :: Featuring Andrea Bubeniek
11am - 12pm Sat 5 May 2018

From Scared to Secular: The Etchings of Rembrandt and Goya :: An illustrated public lecture by Dr. Andrea Bubenik

In this talk, I will explore some of the highlights of the Beguile exhibition, especially the masterful prints by Rembrandt van Rijn and Francisco Goya. Easily the most important printmakers of their respective generations, Rembrandt and Goya exploited the medium of etching to render dramatic scenes resplendent with textures of light. Featuring subjects that were both novel and risqué, these etchings allow us to consider the transition from sacred to secular, and themes that remain vibrant and relevant to contemporary life.

Bio: Dr. Andrea Bubenik is a Senior Lecturer in Art History at the University of Queensland, Brisbane. Her research and teaching is focused on Renaissance and Baroque art (especially Albrecht Dürer and his followers), histories of printmaking, court cultures and collecting, and links between art and science in the early modern period. Andrea completed her PhD at Queen’s University in Canada in 2007, and moved to Australia in 2009 to take up her position at UQ. Her monograph entitled Reframing Albrecht Dürer: The Appropriation of Art, 1528-1700, which focuses on aspects of Dürer’s reception, was published in 2012. She has also curated two major exhibitions at the UQ Art Museum: Five Centuries of Melancholia (2014) and Ecstasy: Baroque and Beyond (2017).
