Sarah H. Lippert

Posted By RSA, Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Sarah H. Lippert, Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan–Flint, Director of the Society for Paragone Studies, and Editor-in-Chief of its journal Paragone: Past and Present, passed away on 24 April 2019. She was the author of numerous books and articles, including the newly published The Paragone in Nineteenth-Century Art (Routledge, 2019), along with Going Back to the Beginning of Things: The Ancient Origins of the Arts of France (Taylor and Francis, 2018) and The Temporality of Imitation in the Works of Moreau and Gérome (Tauris, 2017). For a full list of publications, see this page.

Sarah was a long-time supporter and member of ATSAH, SECAC, and CAA, in addition to the RSA.

The SECAC 2019 session she was to chair at the upcoming conference in Chattanooga, “The Art of Depicting Paragoni of Life,” will go forward in honor of her memory, and there will be a special session at CAA in 2020.

We are grateful to have known and loved this young, energetic, and accomplished scholar. ATSAH plans to establish an academic fund in her honor. Details will follow.

Liana de Girolami Cheney
President, The Association for Textual Scholarship in Art History (ATSAH)
