Krystel Chehab


Krystel Chehab is currently completing her PhD in Art History at the University of British Columbia. Her area of research is the visual culture of early modern Spain, especially the movement of artistic forms and ideas into and out of this context. Her dissertation, ‘Picturing Sacred Things: Realism and Discernment in Spanish Still-Life Painting, 1600-1675’, explores the development of the pan-European genre of still-life painting and its intersections with religious imagery. Her next project will focus on the flow of early modern images between Spain and Italy.
