  • Linda M. Martin received her M.A. Degree in Art History from Michigan State University. She then continued her graduate work in Italy, where she studied the methods and theory of art conservation and restoration. She earned a Certificato degli Studi, Conservazione e teoria del restauro delle opera d’arte e Museologia from l’Universita Internazionale dell’Arte of Florence. She worked for several years as a professional painting conservator first in Copenhagen and then Amsterdam.

    Professor Martin teaches courses on Northern Renaissance, Italian Renaissance, and Baroque art history.  She has also taught Italian for the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.

    Her research focuses on the relationships between the arts of the Renaissance and the political and social life of the period, both in Italy and in Northern Europe. She is also investigating the influence of Flemish art on the Italian Renaissance.
