About me

Anders Zorn professor of Art History.

PhD in 1995 from Uppsala University with a dissertation on painted memorial tablets in Early Modern Sweden.

Between 1998 and 2007 lecturer of Art History at Gotland University.


My reserach is focused on Renaissance and Baroque art and on the theories and histories of the art historical discipline. In 2009 appeared a book on art and identity in 16th century Sweden. A book length study of spectatorship and site specificity in relation to Federico Barocci's art was published by Ashgate in 2011. It was published as a paperback by Routledge in 2016.

In 2017 a book on Michelangelo and multi-media was published by Nordic Academic Press.

I am also doing research on the art historian Felix Horb (Prague 1890 - Stockholm 1958) who belonged to the Vienna school.

Beside Early Modern art and art theory I am interested in contemporary art, music and multi-media.
