I'm senior curator of manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum and a specialist in secular manuscript illumination. I've curated a variety of manuscripts exhibitions at the Getty Center, including Imagining the Past in France, 1250–1500, Medieval Beasts, The Medieval Bookshelf: From Romance to Astronomy, and Images of Violence in the Medieval World. I'm co-editor of the book Imagining the Past in France: History in Manuscript Painting, 1250–1500 and author of Beasts: Factual and Fantastic in the Medieval Imagination series from Getty Publications.
