Author: Isabelle Marchesin
I am a scientific advisor, researcher, and author in the department of the History of Medieval Art at the Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art (INHA, the French National Institute for Art History). I began my career studying historical anthropology at the EHESS (École des Hautes Études) and art history at the École du Louvre in Paris. Before taking up my current position at the INHA,, I conducted fellowships in Rome, Budapest and Göttingen, and taught medieval history at the University of Poitiers. I specialize in art of the early Middle Ages and study the relationship between images, science, and exegesis, with a particular focus on the relationship between visual arts and music. Currently, I am working on a book about the bronze doors of Hildesheim.
