Lia Markey
311 McCormick Hall
(609) 258-3797
Italian Renaissance Art
Ph.D., University of Chicago, 2008

Lia Markey specializes in Italian Renaissance art with particular concentrations on artistic and cultural exchange between Italy and the Americas, Medici patronage, prints and drawings, and collecting history. She has been the recipient of a Kress Foundation Fellowship at the Kunsthistorisches Institute in Florence, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship and a Renaissance Society of America Research Grant. Prior to teaching at Princeton, Dr. Markey taught courses at Fordham University, The New School, Yeshiva University and the University of Pennsylvania as an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities. She has worked at the Smart Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Morgan Library and the Princeton University Art Museum where she is contributing to the research and writing of a forthcoming catalogue of Italian drawings. Dr. Markey recently completed a book manuscript entitled, Imagining the New World in Medici Florence: Art, Collecting, and Cultural Conquest and is currently engaged in researching two different book projects that each investigate novelty and cross-cultural relations in the sixteenth century: one project explores Giovanni Stradano’s Nova Reperta print series while the other examines the life and work of three Italian artists who painted in the Andes of present-day Peru.
