Jaya Remond

Jaya Remond received her PhD in 2014 from the Department of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University. Her doctoral dissertation, entitled The Kunstbüchlein: creating and transmitting artistic know-how in Renaissance Germany, deals with printed artists' manuals of the sixteenth century. Concentrating on the function and strategy of these training books, her study examines the authors' goals, the specificity of their pedagogical mission, and the ways in which artistic knowledge (including basic geometry, the mastery of perspective and human proportions) is selected, framed, and presented. Jaya's research interests focus on Northern European art 1400 -1700, artistic theory and practice in the early modern period, print culture, and the migration of artists and objects. Her work has been supported by research grants from the Graduate School of Art and Science at Harvard University where she was a presidential scholar, from the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the Kress Foundation, and the Deutsches Forum für Kunstgeschichte.
