The University of Virginia McIntire Department of Art begins its spring lecture series with a talk by Megan Holmes, associate professor in the History of Art at the University of Michigan.

An expert on Italian Renaissance social and cultural history, Holmes’ lecture, “Copying and Reproduction in the Context of Italian Renaissance Religious Cults,” is drawn from her research for a book on Florentine cult images and religious sanctuaries from 1300 to 1550.

Holmes received her Ph.D. from Harvard. She is the author of “Fra Filippo Lippi the Carmelite Painter” (Yale 1999), which the Times Literary Supplement described as a “learned, richly documented study of the intersection of religion, art and patronage in 15th century Florence.” Holmes has contributed chapters to a number of volumes on renaissance art, most recently “Giovanni Benci’s Patronage of the Nunnery, Le Murate,” which appeared in “Art, Memory, and Family in Renaissance Florence” (Cambridge 2000). She is currently working on a book on Florentine cult images and religious sanctuaries from 1300 to 1550.
