Transformed Images: Christian Art in Japan during the Momoyama and Edo Periods
Jan Kennedy received a B.A. in the History of Art and English Literature, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in the History of Art, all from the University of Kansas. Her major area for her Ph.D. was 17th Century Dutch and Flemish paintings and prints, and her minor areas were Venetian Cinquecento painting and Japanese art of the Edo Period. To complete her dissertation research, she was awarded the Friends of the Mauritshuis Fellowship associated with the Royal Picture Gallery, the Mauritshuis, in the Netherlands. Drawing from her diverse background in both Dutch and Japanese art history, she teaches a wide range of classes that focus on both the art of the Netherlands and Japan as well as cross-cultural influences during the early modern era. Kennedy is also the Program Head of the Asian Studies Certificate Program at the Kansas City Art Institute.
