My areas of teaching competence include: Introductory Survey to Western Art; Greek and Roman Art and Antiquarianism; Roman Imperial Numismatics; Iconography; Early Christian Art; Late Medieval Manuscript Illumination; Early Netherlandish Painting; Baroque Painting in the Circle of Peter Paul Rubens; American Painting in the Circle of Benjamin West; History of Furniture; History of Costume. My current research focus is a project to find, analyze and publish archival documents on the Solari family of Milanese Renaissance artists.
