DAAD-Short Term Grant

We welcome Melania Ruiz Sanz de Bremond, who joins Sacrima for a one-month research stay (November-December 2020).

During her time with Sacrima, Melania will advance her dissertation project, Reverse Painting on Glass: Production and Circulation between the Old and New Worlds (1650-1790). This project examines the relationships between art and geography, the transmission of models and tastes, and the importance of practices of collecting and patronage between Spain, a variety of European courts, and the Viceroyalties of New Spain and Peru. 

Melania is currently a PhD Candidate at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), where she works under the supervision of Prof. Luisa Elena Alcalá. She earned her B.A in Art History from the UAM in 2016, and an M.A in Art History from the Universidad de Sevilla in 2017. Her stay with Sacrima is supported by a Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) Short-Term Grant.
