  1. Hi everyone! I recently applied to grad school with the intention on focusing on the Italian Renaissance. I would love any book/documentary recommendations you may have!
  2. Please delete if this is not the proper forum. My question doesn't involve grad schools but this is the only forum I could find where I think someone might know the answer to this. I saw a painting at the MMA in NYC about 20 years ago but it was taken off of display (don't know if it's back again). Anyway, I found it very interesting and would love to see it again. I don't know who the artist is or the exact subject. But it was, I believe, Italian, probably from the mid-1400's and was either The Presentation, or Annunciation or possibly the Birth of the Virgin -- I'm leaning towards Presentation in the Temple because I think I recall the Christ child in it. Anyway, the thing about it that is interesting and the biggest clue to describing the painting is that the subjects (The Madonna at least) is under a roof, like a portico, but when you follow the columns holding the roof down from the top to the bottom, the perspective is completely off and I recall one or two of the rear columns (when viewed at the top of the column) ends at the bottom in the foreground, in front of the 'front' columns. So it looks like the subjects are under the roof towards the top half of this painting, but they are beyond or behind the roof if you look at the bottom half and see that the supporting columns are in front of them. Does anyone here know which painting this is?
  3. Any recommendations for PhD programs in 16th- and 17th-century Italian art? I have already have an MA in Art History and solid language skills. I know that in the past five years a number of scholars in Early Modern art have retired, especially in the Baroque and the 17th century, so I am also considering working with scholars who focus on Medieval or Renaissance Italian art. Of course, funding is also a concern. Thoughts?
  4. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/03/20/suit-alleges-ohio-u-sat-complaints-professors-sexual-misconduct-decade?utm_content=bufferba9dc&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=IHEbuffer (This is a link to more info from Inside Higher Ed about the charges being brought against the alleged harasser- Prof. Andrew Escobedo.) https://www.ohio.edu/cas/about/directories/profiles.cfm?profile=escobedo (This is a link to his profile on the OU site.) I would encourage grad students, particularly female grad students, to be wary of OU's English department in light of these allegations. It looks like he is in the process of being fired, as the Inside Higher Ed article states: "Ohio has already moved to fire the tenured full professor and says its processes ensure that all complaints are 'investigated thoroughly and handled appropriately.'" Nonetheless, a department that would allow this type of alleged conduct to go on for a decade is one to be leery of. (I highly doubt they would be in the process of firing him had the allegations been found to be untrue in the subsequent investigation.)
  5. I'm look to apply to these schools in the coming fall (for admission for the Fall 2017) and I was hoping for opinions about these schools. Which is ranked higher, are they about the same, etc.? My focus is Renaissance art. Should I visit the schools before or after I apply? University of Maryland College Park, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Pittsburgh, Boston University. Thanks!
