Ann-Sophie Lehmann appointed Getty Scholar
NMDC program coordinator Dr Ann-Sophie Lehmann has been selected for a prestigious Getty Scholarship from January to July 2013 at the Getty Center in Los Angeles.
The Getty Center’s year theme for 2012/13 will be ‘Color’, and Lehmann’s research is titled ‘Coloring Life, Crafting Images: Early Hand-Colored Photographs in Japan and the West’. Colour is an essential component of artistic production and therefore should be fundamental to art historical analysis. The Getty Centre has invited scholars to explore the topic of colour from various angles, giving insight into the aesthetics, symbolism, psychology, technology, materiality, conservation, and production of works of art.
Ann-Sophie Lehmann is Associate Professor in the Department of Media and Culture Studies at Utrecht University. She specialises in emerging media culture and the study of materials and tools of image production in old and new media.
The Getty Center includes the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, the international projects and research of the Research Center and the Conservation Institute, and the philanthropic outreach of the Getty Foundation.
