Professor H. Perry Chapman received her B.A. in Art History and History from Swarthmore College and her Ph.D. from Princeton University. A specialist in seventeenth-century Dutch art, she teaches about early modern European art, with a concentration in Northern Baroque painting; the history of prints; the relation between artists and society; and research and methodology in art history. Recent seminar topics include "Dutch Art Rough and Smooth," "Dutch Painting and Technical Art History," "The Painter's Place: The Primacy of Painting in the Dutch Republic," "Art and Religion: The Netherlands after Iconoclasm," "Rembrandt and Dutch Art," "Approaches to Vermeer," "The Self-Portrait from Dürer to Rembrandt," "The Art Market in the Dutch Republic," and "The Artist's Studio."
Professor Chapman has published widely on Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Jan Steen, on self-portraiture, and on seventeenth-century art theory and artists' biographies. Her book Rembrandt's Self-Portraits: A Study in Seventeenth-Century Identity examines Rembrandt's representations of himself against the background of early modern notions of individuality. Professor Chapman was co-curator and co-catalogue author for the major exhibition Jan Steen: Painter and Storyteller at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. Her investigation of Rembrandt's house and collection has been published as "Rembrandt on Display: The Rembrandthuis as Portrait of an Artist" and "Rembrandt's House and the Making of an Artist." Her interest in the early modern artist's studio has led to articles on "The Imagined Studios of Rembrandt and Vermeer," "Cornelis Ketel: Fingerpainter and Poet-Painter," and "The Wooden Body: Representing the Manikin in Dutch Artists' Studios." Her research has been supported by fellowships from the Woodrow Wilson Center, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (National Gallery of Art), and the Guggenheim Foundation.
Professor Chapman served as editor-in-chief of The Art Bulletin from 2000 to 2004. She is currently a member of the editorial board of the Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek/Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art, for which she co-edited volume 69 (2019), on the history and changing critical reception of connoisseurship in the Netherlands: Connoisseurship and the Knowledge of Art / Kennerschap en kunst.
