The Liber Amicorum for Professor Hans Körner, Art History Institute of the University of Düsseldorf, on the occasion of his retirement also contains an article about Angelica Kauffman and Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun. It’s about the question of the competition among female artists:

Bettina Baumgärtel: Agon der Malerinnen. Angelika Kauffmann und Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun im Wettstreit? in: Blickränder. Grenzen, Schwellen und ästhetische Randphänomene in den Künsten. Liber Amicorum für Hans Körner, ed. Astrid Lang and Wiebke Windorf, Berlin 2017, p. 360-378

The exhibition catalog presents the collection of a private collection with more than 100 engravings after the most famous works of Angelica Kauffman. The catalogue has been edited with much knowledge by Kauffman expert Bettina Baumgärtel and gives an insight into the heyday of English reproductive prints. A second chapter is dedicated to the portrait of Johann Joachim Winckelmann and his reception. For the first time, Baumgärtel gives a comprehensive overview of the different versions of the famous portrait, which was vividly copied in numerous prints and reproductions from the 18th to the 20th century.
