October 12th, 2015 Comments Off on Kansas State professor to present public lecture


Among the works Douglas N. Dow will discuss during his Thursday [Oct. 15] presentation is Bernardino Poccetti’s The Funeral of Alberto Avogadro from Cabinet des Dessins, Louvre.

Douglas N. Dow, associate professor of art history at Kansas State University, will give a public lecture titled “Never adequately praised: Bernardino Poccetti’s Lost Paintings at Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence” on Thurs., Oct. 15 at 8 a.m. in Griffis Hall, Forum Room, 4th Floor.

Dow’s research interests focus on issues of collective patronage, the production and consumption of art by non-elites, and the professional and social networks of artists and patrons in late 16th century Italy. His interest in the intersection of digital technologies, popular culture, and the history of Renaissance art led to an article on the presence of anachronistic architectural monuments in the video game “Assassin’s Creed II.”

At Kansas State, Dow teaches introductory art history courses, as well as upper-level courses on Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art. He also had led several summer study-abroad programs in Italy.
