"Saints, Founders and Ancestors: The Later Medieval Reception of Earlier Medieval Books"
Erik Inglis, Professor of Medieval Art and Co-Chair of the Art History program at Oberlin College, teaches medieval art history, from 300 to 1300 across Europe and from 1300-1500 north of the Alps. His publications focus on court art in the later medieval France and Flanders, particularly the court artist Jean Fouquet (ca. 1420 - ca. 1480). Among others, they include Jean Fouquet and the Invention of France: Art and Nation after the Hundred Years War (Yale University Press, 2011) and "Expertise, Artifacts, and Time in the 1534 Inventory of the Saint-Denis Treasury" in the March 2016 issue of Art Bulletin (pp. 14-42).
