Daantje Meuwissen is assistant professor in Early Modern Art History of Northern Europe. Her research focuses on early modern painting, printmaking and drawing in the North. The earliest known artist active in Amsterdam, Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen (ca. 1470-1533), is her special topic of interest. In 2014 she was guest-curator of a large exhibition on this artist in the Amsterdam Museum and Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar: https://issuu.com/amsterdammuseum/docs/facts___figures_van_oostsanen/1

Daantje is currently working on early modern sketchbooks from the North. Only a handful of model-and sketchbooks from the North have survived, but they fulfill a crucial position within art history. Daantje aims to ‘dissect’ the extant Northern sketchbooks from a technical, functional, and comparative perspective. She is currently working on a reconstruction of the Errera-sketchbook from the Antwerp workshop of Joachim Patinir (ca. 1480-1524). 

Daantje teaches courses in the BA-, MA- and RMA-program. In addition, she is internship-coordinator within the Research Master Art History.
