Nicola Suthor is a leading scholar of early modern art. Her work has ranged widely in Northern and Southern painting, drawing and sculpture, including studies of Rembrandt (Rembrandts Rauheit, recently translated as Rembrandt’s Roughness, 2019) and Titian (Augenlust bei Tizian. Zur Konzeption sensueller Malerei in der Frühen Neuzeit, 2004). Her work combines attention to facture and process with the analysis of theoretical paradigms, for example in her study of ‘virtuosity’ in Baroque art: Bravura: Virtuosität und Mutwilligkeit in der Malerei der Frühen Neuzeit (2010). She will be speaking about her current project, Meta/physics of Drawing: Trains of Thought and the Artist’s Line, which is based on the thesis that the horizon of possibilities opens up in a process of vague linear articulation.
