Research Interests: visual and material culture of the early modern Netherlands


Emily Hirsch studies the art of the early modern Netherlands. Her dissertation project focuses on seventeenth-century Flemish sculpture, considering the role of multimedia design in the sculptor's workshop, the relationship between art theory and practice in the Netherlands, and the transnational migration of Flemish sculptors.

She has held positions at the Cleveland Museum of Art as the ArtLens Exhibition Project Manager and Samuel H. Kress Foundation Interpretive Fellow. She is the inaugural 2022-23 Flanders State of the Art Predoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Netherlandish Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
