Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, a professor of art and archaeology at Princeton, has been awarded a Rome Prize, which allows American artists and scholars to study at the American Academy in Rome.
With the fellowship, Kaufmann will study 16th-century artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo's contribution to the invention of still-life painting. His research will combine art theory, nature painting and natural history.
Kaufmann was among 31 winners of the Rome Prize fellowships, which range from six months to two years.
