February - June 2005
Jonathan Unglaub is assistant professor of fine arts at Brandeis University. His research focuses on the art and literary culture of Nicolas Poussin. He is the recipient of many grants and awards, including a Getty postdoctoral fellowship in 2000-01. He is the author of numerous articles in Art Bulletin, Arion, and the Burlington Magazine--mostly on Poussin and seventeenth-century visual culture--research which will culminate in his forthcoming book: Poussin, Tasso, and the Poetics of Painting (Cambridge, 2005). At the Clark Unglaub will complete another book project, Ancient Painting and Baroque Poetics: A Convergence in Poussin's Late Work, a study of how Poussin's later narrative pictures transform classical prototypes through contemporary modes of rhetoric.
