About Sarah Lund

chloen
Sarah Lund is a Ph.D Candidate in the Department of History of Art & Architecture at Harvard University and a 2021-2022 Frederick Sheldon Traveling Fellow. Her dissertation in progress is titled “The Matrix of Citizenship: Female Printmakers in Revolutionary France." In illuminating the work of these little-known female artists, her project argues not only for their participation in the politics of the revolution and its image-making but also seeks to resituate artistic practice as both a mode of political speech and of citizenship, especially as these artist were denied official political participation due to their gender. Print especially may have been a particularly apt medium to represent the turmoil of the French Revolution and for women artists to mobilize in negotiating female citizenship. This project attends to the gendered concepts, both practical and theoretical, of printmaking and its materials to argue how female printmakers found within their media modes of envisioning, asserting, and redefining their gendered, artistic, professional, social, and political identities.

Sarah earned her B.A. in Art History and Government from Dartmouth College in 2016 and holds her MA from Harvard. From 2016-2018, she was the Technical Art Historian and Research Coordinator for the new Scientific Research Department of Sotheby’s New York, where she assisted with the technical, art historical, and provenance research of works coming to sale from all specialist departments. Sarah's research has been supported by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, the Harvard Graduate Society and Smith Foundation, and her curatorial experience includes work at the Getty Research Institute, the Hood Museum of Art, and the Harvard Art Museums.
