When I behold my Picture: the negotiation of meaning in Edwaert Collier's Still Life With a Copy of Wither's 'Emblemes' (Debra Pring)
Debra Pring was recently awarded her PhD from London University where her thesis dealt with the life and work of Edwaert Collier, with specific emphasis on his musical still-lifes - the first full-length examination of this artist's work ever undertaken. She is executive director of Repertoire International d'Iconographie Musicale (RIdIM), the scholarly body which co-ordinates and promotes research and data collection in music iconology worldwide, based in London and New York.
