My research on printing and printmaking in early modern Europe looks at how images were made to obtain and display access to knowledge, power, and patronage for communities of readers with a common literacy in image and text. Concern for the currency of images as they interact with the read and spoken word has extended into research on early notions of intellectual property, and the visual representations of authorship, gender differences, and truth claims. I am now thinking about color.

Originally from New York City, I earned a BA in Fine Arts and Literature from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, in 1973. I was a printmaker and museum curator in San Francisco until returning to school at the University of California at Berkeley, where I received a PhD in the History of Art in 1994, joining the faculty of Brown University in that year.
