Professor Steffani Bennett, UW-Madison

206 Ingraham Hall
This lecture will focus on Prof. Bennett's research about the development of the landscape genre in Japanese painting history. She is an art historian of premodern Japan with a specialization in medieval painting. Within that realm, her research has focused on the fifteenth-century monk-painter Sesshū Tōyō (1420–ca. 1506). She is particularly interested in Sino-Japanese cultural relations in the premodern period and much of her scholarship is interregional in nature.
