Lisanne Wepler

Lisanne Wepler is an art historian who works since April 2016 as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leiden, in a project about the Aesopian fable. After finishing her Ph.D. at the university of Bonn in art history (dissertation: Bilderzählungen in der Vogelmalerei des niederländischen Barocks, Petersberg 2014), she worked as a junior conservator at the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig. Her aim is now to collect fables in the fine arts, graphics and applied arts from 1600 til 1900 and to specify the presentation of (living) animals in the fine arts. She is very interested in image-text relations and in the combination of pictures, animals and fables.
