Personal profile

Research interests

At the center of my research is the employment of artifacts in space, especially site planning and interior decoration in the widest sense as well as depictions of works of architecture in painting, during the late medieval and early modern periods. This focus is accompanied by a strong interest in issues of materiality, manufacturing technologies, and temporality. A second area of interest comprises manifestations of otherness (depictions of Asian, African, and European foreigners; courtesans; and samurai), transcultural picture migration, and export art (especially lacquer).
