The Department of Art History is pleased to announce that PhD Candidate, Claire Jensen, was recently awarded an Honorarium for Art Historians impacted by Covid-19 (by Smarthistory). The pandemic has adversely impacted many art historians and thanks to support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, Smarthistory was able to offer a limited number of honoraria to emerging art history scholars. Smarthistory is the most visited art history resource in the world and supports students, instructors, and lifelong learners everywhere. It's free, award-winning digital content unlocks the expertise of hundreds of leading scholars, making the history of art accessible and engaging to everyone.
Honoraria were made available for the successful publication of a short, accessible essay in the scholar's area of specialization. Claire's award-winning essay, "Simone Martini, Saint Louis of Toulouse," can be found on the Smarthistory website.
Please join us in congratulating Claire on this wonderful achievement!
