Professor Meyer's primary area of expertise is European art of the eighteenth century, with a special interest in British Art and in the genres of landscape, portraiture, satire and caricature, and sporting art. She has curated and written the catalogues for two major exhibitions: in London, at Kenwood House, on Landscape and Sporting Art in Early Georgian England; and at the Wallach Gallery, Columbia University, on the legacy of Raphael's Tapestry Cartoons in Eighteenth-Century England. She consults for many academic and commercial publishers, as well as for auction houses including Sotherby's and Christie's. Her pre-academic careers (first as a painter and then as a designer) surface in her course 'Artistic Materials and Techniques.'
