This year marks the 75th anniversary of Giovanna Pierattini's groundbreaking study on nun artist Suor Plautilla Nelli, published in Memorie Domenicane in 1938. In conjunction with this anniversary, the MAP's Jane Fortune Research Project on Women Artists and the Biblioteca Domenicana in Santa Maria Novella are co-sponsoring a conference on nun artists and the circumstances of artistic production in female monastic communities from the early Renaissance until the Napoleonic suppression, in Italy and abroad as well. The conference will take place October 4-5 in the Sala dell'Annunciazione at the Convento dei Frati Servi di Santa Maria (SS. Annunziata), via Cesare Battisti 6 (Firenze).
