Forschungsprojekt

The representability of everyday experience, including mental states, affects and beliefs in fourteenth-century Italian painting:
The study focuses on the introduction of profane donors into sacred historical scenes, depictions of “outsider” figures who do not participate fully in rituals and ex votos as rudimentary self-portraits.  The overall theme is the appending of new myths of individuality and intimacy to the old Christian myths.
