Megan Reddicks Pignaturo awarded a Samuel H. Kress Research Fellowship in Renaissance Art History

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Megan Reddicks Pignatruo (PhD candidate) has been awarded a travel fellowship - a Samuel H. Kress Research Fellowship in Renaissance Art History to off-set expenses for research travel. Given the current COVID restrictions, the grant has been generously extended for use through June 2022 rather than just the 2021 calendar year. Her proposal is to travel to Florence to view conservation records at the Opificio delle Pietre Dure on Quattrocento paintings that exhibit early use of oil paint. Should travel continue to be limited, she will travel to the Getty Research Institute to view their extensive collection of conservation publications. The working title of her dissertation is "The Facture of Non-Linear Perspective in Quattrocento Florence". Read More
