Author: Bryan C. Keene
I’m assistant curator in the Department of Manuscripts at the Getty Museum. I'm pursuing a PhD at The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and I hold a master’s from Syracuse University in Italian Renaissance art as well as a bachelor’s degree from Pepperdine University in art history and Romance linguistics and cultures. My most recent projects were the exhibition and book Gardens of the Renaissance and the exhibition Renaissance Splendors of the Northern Italian Courts (available also on Google Open Gallery). I was also contributing curator and author to the exhibition and catalogue Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance: Painting and Illumination, 1300–1350. I am currently working on the exhibition Traversing the Globe through Illuminated Manuscripts, which opens January 26, 2016.
