I specialize in the art of the first half of the twentieth century, and one question drives my research: why do museums and art history books present modern art as if it were the only art being made in this period? I want to know about the traditional artists of the time, and find out what became of them and their works; and I want to understand the process that put modern art on top.
Beyond this, I love the fact that I can teach a wide range of courses at Assumption covering everything from seventeenth-century Dutch painting to the contemporary art scene. I particularly enjoy teaching the “Art & Politics” classes that are the gateway to the Fortin & Gonthier Foundations of Western Civilization Program because they push me to think about how my own subject fits into the history of human thought.
