Area of Study: Italian Renaissance Art
Caroline Koncz studies early modern Italian art with a focus in sixteenth-century Venetian painting. Her dissertation considers how contemporary gender relations and social control were expressed in much of the erotic mythological paintings produced in late cinquecento Venice. Caroline’s other current research interests include examining the visualization of demons in cinquecento Italian artwork as well as analyzing pieces that demonstrate the Venetian’s close relationship with the Mamluk’s at the turn of the sixteenth century.
Caroline graduated from Bradley University with a BA in Music and Art History. She also holds a MA in Art History from Webster University. While at Webster, she wrote her master’s thesis on Michelangelo’s designs of the Campidoglio in context with Pope Paul III’s appropriation of the space.
