Dr. Jennifer Montagu, LVO, CBE is a world-renowned art historian whose name has become synonymous with the study of Italian Baroque sculpture. In addition to her groundbreaking archival research about Alessandro Algardi and the French painter Charles Lebrun, she has elevated the connoisseurship of Roman bronzes to an academic discipline and fundamentally changed the way art historians think about Baroque sculpture in general. Her approach to the organisation of ateliers and to the complex relationships between patron, designer, and craftsman has established a new standard for methodology not only in Baroque sculpture but also for the study of all early-modern European sculpture. In honour of her immeasurable contribution, the foremost scholars in the field of Italian Baroque sculpture will present papers in her honour.
