Lindsay Dupertuis has recently completed her Ph.D. in Art History at the University of Maryland. She specializes in early modern Italian art, particularly domestic and decorative arts, and in digital art history. Her current research focuses on the intersection of the decorative arts and literary culture during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Her dissertation project, “Istoriato Maiolica and the Virtues of Reading in Renaissance Urbino and Beyond,” utilizes a large dataset of istoriato maiolica to consider intertextuality, reception, and interpretation among artists and elite consumers alike. More broadly, she is concerned with issues of gender, class, (dis)ability, and vernacular culture in early modern Europe.

Currently, Lindsay is working on two articles related to her dissertation research: one on digital methodologies for the study of ceramics, and another on the creative and interpretative aspects of copying made manifest in istoriato maiolica compositions.

Lindsay was awarded an Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Completion Fellowship from the University of Maryland for Fall 2020. During the 2018-19 academic year, she was as a Graduate Curatorial Intern in the Dept. of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the J. Paul Getty Museum. In the past, she has held internships at the National Gallery of Art and the Walters Art Museum.
