Professor Kettering specializes in the early modern period, with a special interest in seventeenth-century Dutch art. She has taught a wide range of courses on art throughout western Europe, focusing on gender issues in western art, Renaissance and Baroque art north and south of the Alps, and the art of the print.
Her books and articles have concentrated on 17th-century Dutch pastoral images, the art of Gerard ter Borch and his family, and Rembrandt's portraiture and renderings of the male nude. Her books include: The Dutch Arcadia: Pastoral Art and Its Audience in the Golden Age and Drawings from the Ter Borch Studio Estate in the Rijksmuseum. In 2004, she produced an essay and entries for the catalogue of an exhibition of Gerard ter Borch's paintings which opened at the National Gallery in Washington. Since then she has published and lectured on a variety of subjects, including depictions of the occupations, the windmill, and country life. She is Editor-in-Chief of the peer reviewed, open access e-journal, Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art, www.jhna.org.
