Portrait of Stephanie Levert

Stephanie Levert

University of Amsterdam Netherlands Academic Research

Stephanie was born in The Hague, but studied archaeology and art history at the University of Lyons. She then went back to the Netherlands and studied iconology and medieval studies at Utrecht University. After obtaining master's degrees in both Lyons and Utrecht, she specialized in the migration of Dutch and Flemish artists to France in modern history (16th and 17th century). Obsessed with sources, archives and artists' biographies, her studies focuse mainly on historic aspects of this phenomena and are based on intensive archival research.
She recently defended her PhD thesis at Utrecht University intitled "Etrangers, mais habitués en cette ville de Paris" : les artistes néerlandais à Paris (1550-1700) : une prosopographie and plans to pursue her research on Dutch and Flemish artists in France in the coming years, hopefully in a French or Dutch academic team.
Like her 333 painters and sculptors, she has been living in Paris for more than 10 years with her french partner and her half French- half Dutch son. But she frequently visits her homeland (i.e. as often as she can).
