The department has a strong specialisation in Early Modern art that spans the history of Byzantine art, the Italian Renaissance and Northern Renaissance art. Our research considers both canonical and non-canonical imagery using a range of contextual approaches. Archival research and the close examination of objects, as well as innovative methodologies, inform our investigation of focused problems in Early Modern art history.
We welcome applications to study topics that complement our current research.
- Culture, Humanism and Intellect: Cardinal Bessarion as Patron of the Arts.
- Giotto’s Enterprise: Art, Avarice and Ambition in Trecento Italy.
- Ecclestiastical Art of the Fifteenth to Seventeenth Centuries from a Contextural/Liturgical Perspective.
- A group of 15th/16th century Netherlandish illuminated manuscripts in Alnwick Castle.
