1) It contributes research on individual early modern Netherlandish women artists and patrons and names women artists, patrons, and those who-including themselves-promoted and praised their work in their own time. It thereby provides a foundation for future art historians and scholars. 2) It features emerging scholars' research and provides a historiographical corrective with a contemporary perspective on the state of a feminist Netherlandish art history. 3) The topic is timely-feminist issues are experiencing a resurgence of interest in the academy and among a more general readership because of #metoo and the political realities of the US and Europe.
