Mildred Lane Kemper Professor Emerita of Art, Wellesley College. Her research concentrates on the decoration of Italian books in the transition from the manuscript book to the book printed with movable type, especially in Venice, a major center of the new printing industry in the late 15th century. In this era, some manuscripts were still written and lavishly illuminated by hand, but also, many printed books were individualized with painted decoration. Analyzing the decoration provides information about the producers, patrons, readers, and distributors of Renaissance books. In 2010 she was awarded an Andrew W. Mellon Emeritus Fellowship which resulted in Petrarch’s Famous Men in the Early Renaissance: The Illuminated Copies of Felice Feliciano’s Edition (London: The Warburg Institute, 2016). She has served on the editorial boards of the periodicals Word and Image; and Rivista di Storia della Miniatura.
