Artist and art historian Carla van de Puttelaar will speak about her recently published book on Scottish portraiture from the period 1644 to 1714, the first in-depth academic study on this little-researched area of Scottish art history. In her lecture Carla van de Puttelaar will talk about Scottish painters David Scougall (1625–1685), his son John Scougall (1657–1737) and their contemporaries, also looking at the legal community in which the Scougalls were embedded, as well as about the extended group of sitters and their social, economic, and family networks. Carla van de Puttelaar (1967, Zaandam, The Netherlands) is an artist and art historian. She holds a PhD in Art History from Utrecht University (2017). In 1996, she graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Since then, her photographic work has gained worldwide recognition, and has been exhibited and published extensively. Her skills as a photographer were an important asset in producing the illustrations with which her publication is so lavishly furnished.
