I teach medieval art history, from 300 to 1300 across Europe, and from 1300-1500 north of the Alps. My publications focus on court art in the later medieval France and Flanders, particularly the court artist Jean Fouquet (c. 1420-c. 1480). My current research addresses the medieval art historical imagination.
