University of Amsterdam, Faculty of Law

In 2017, Barbara created a spectacular work for the new Faculty of Law of the Amsterdam University. Since the launch of the work, many visitors asked questions about the figures in the canvas: who are they, and what do they mean?
As part of an elective course devoted especially to this artwork, students enrolled in the Law and Art History programmes of the Amsterdam University set out to catalogue the depicted figures. Who are they and what do they symbolise in terms of both art history and the development of the law? The result is an inspiring website with background information on the more than 300 figures and artists in the work, ranging from Moses and Napoleon to Rembrandt and Klimt.

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam: Meesterlijke vrouwen
Ten must-see avant-garde artists

The world of art is still a world of men. Research shows that only 13% of the works on display in Dutch museums is made by women. No matter how famous women artists were during their lifetime, most of them are forgotten or ignored by art history. The exhibition ‘Meesterlijke Vrouwen’ (‘Masterful Women’) aims to change this.
Barbara was asked to submit one of her intriguing works to this powerful exhibition.

On view: June 15th till September 8th 2019
Check the website of Stedelijk Museum Schiedam for opening hours
