Akemi Herraez Vossbrink

Biography:

Supervisor: Jean Michel Massing

Akemi Herráez Vossbrink's thesis will examine the New World reception of the Spanish seventeenth-century artist Francisco de Zurbarán’s oeuvre. Special attention will be given to Zurbarán and his workshop’s painting series of saints, patriarchs, archangels and Spanish legendary figures produced for the Spanish viceroyalties from the 1630’s to the 1650’s.

Her thesis will also answer global questions on seventeenth-century trade, indigenous interactions and identities, and Spain’s role in exporting and transforming its image for the Americas.

Her PhD research is funded by the Nigel Glendinning Studentship in Spanish Studies from King's College, Cambridge.

From September 2014 to August 2015, Akemi was a Graduate Intern at the J. Paul Getty Museum's Paintings Department in Los Angeles, California. In 2014 she obtained her Master by Research from the University of Edinburgh.
