Chrissy Zappella, Blanton Fellow of European Art, will have an in-depth conversation about the Blanton’s newly-conserved sculpture of “The Education of the Virgin” by Spanish Baroque artist Luisa Roldán. Zappella will reveal her post-conservation discoveries and discuss the historical and cultural importance of the sculpture, which was made by one of the world’s earliest - and arguably greatest - female sculptors. Zappella is a specialist in Renaissance and Baroque art and joins the Blanton most recently from The Art Institute of Chicago, where she was a curatorial fellow in the Department of European Paintings.
