Dr. Mary Vaccaro invited to Participate in Parmigianino Roundtable

Dr. Mary Vaccaro, a Distinguished Professor of Art History at UT Arlington who specializes in northern Italian painting and drawing, has been invited to participate in a virtual Round Table at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London that will take place on March 15, 2022. The Round Table brings together a group of world-leading scholars on Parmigianino to discuss their latest projects and research on the artist, one of the most celebrated of sixteenth-century Italy. Academics and curators from Italy, United Kingdom, and the United States will present on the artist’s manifold artistic practices, including drawing, printmaking, and painting, substantially updating our knowledge on this important artist and producing a state-of-the-art assessment of scholarship on his oeuvre. 

Dr. Vaccaro is an authority on the School of Parma, and she has published widely on the art of Parmigianino. In 2002 she published a monographic book on the paintings of Parmigianino after co-authoring a volume on the same artist’s drawings (2000). In 2014-15, she held a senior research appointment as Visiting Professor at Villa I Tatti-The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, Italy, which allowed her to deepen her understanding of 16th- and 17th-century Bolognese draftsmen, especially the Carracci. 


The Courtauld Institute of Art is an internationally-renowned center for the teaching and research of art history, and a major public gallery. As an independent college of the University of London, the Courtauld faculty is the largest community of art historians and conservators in the UK. The Courtauld Gallery cares for one of the greatest art collections in the UK, sharing these works with the public at its location in Somerset House on the Strand in central London.
