Robert Glass teaches courses on the art and architecture of early modern Europe. His research focuses on Italian art of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, with a particular interest in the visual culture of the Renaissance courts, the reception of antiquity, and the artistic and cultural relations between Italy and the Mediterranean world. He is currently revising his dissertation for publication as a book on the sculpture of the Florentine artist and architect, Antonio Averlino, called Filarete, and has articles forthcoming in The Art Bulletin and in a volume on Old St. Peter’s in Rome to be published by the British School of Rome and Cambridge University Press. Glass has been a fellow at the Center for the Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and received funding for his research from the Kress Foundation and Princeton University, among other sources.
