About: Maggie Hughes

I'm currently a graduate intern in Special Collections Cataloging at the Getty Research Institute. I have a bachelor's degree in art history and a master's from the School of Information at the University of Michigan. Previously, I've held positions at the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art, at the University of Michigan's Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library, and at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library. I really like books, old things, and art.

      Welcome back to #ThyCaptionBe, a celebration of modern interpretations of medieval aesthetics. Every Monday, this will go down on Tumblr and Twitter:

      1. We’ll post a detail.
      2. You guess what in the world is going on and write a caption (questionable accuracy welcome).
      3. Then we’ll share the full illumination and myth-bust if we must.

      Caption away! Can’t wait to see what #ThyCaptionBe.
