Professor Brush is currently writing a book which maps and contextualizes the scholarly imagination of the pioneering American medievalist Arthur Kingsley Porter (1883-1933) of Harvard University. During the early twentieth century Porter played a key role in mobilizing the transatlantic study of medieval art and architecture, especially Romanesque architecture and sculpture.  Dr. Brush’s talk will discuss the professional bonds that linked Porter to Adolph Goldschmidt (1863-1944), Germany’s most influential scholar of medieval art during the early twentieth century.
