VSGC Alumna Natalia Lauricella (PhD Art History, 2021) Receives 2023 Schulman and Bullard Article Prize

The Association of Print Scholars (APS) is pleased to announce that Natalia Lauricella, PhD, Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University, has been awarded the 2023 Schulman and Bullard Article Prize. Now in its ninth year, this award is given to an article published by an early-career scholar that features compelling and innovative research on prints or printmaking. Lauricella’s article, “The Master Printer’s Labor: Crafting the Color Art Lithograph in Fin-de-Siècle France,” was published in Nouvelles de l’estampe (no. 267) in 2022 and examines the role of the printer in large lithography companies in late nineteenth-century France, such as that of Lemercier, and small workshops, such as Auguste Clot’s atelier. Lauricella’s publication emphasizes the crucial but sometimes overlooked expertise of printers in both commercial and fine art lithography firms, making her article a relevant case study for curators, conservators, collectors, and print scholars of any time period. The Schulman and Bullard Article Prize, which carries a $2,000 award, is generously sponsored by Susan Schulman and Carolyn Bullard and celebrates innovative contributions by early-career scholars to the field. Following the mission of APS, articles submitted for the prize can focus on printmaking across any geographic region and all chronological periods. https://printscholars.org/2023-article-prize/
