“Been There. Done That. Tales Told Through a Language of Dress Represented in Medieval Sculpture”

Janet Snyder, Professor and Head of Art History, West Virginia University, examined the representation of textiles and clothing in northern French stone sculpture and the production of this sculpture in her 2011 monograph Early Gothic Column-Figure Sculpture in France: Appearance, Materials, and Significance. Her research emphasizes the context for medieval sculpture. She is co-editor of Blanche Lazzell: The Life and Work of an American Modernist (2004) and Encountering Medieval Textiles and Dress: Objects, Texts, Images (2002).
