About Ludovico Geymonat
Ludovico Geymonat teaches medieval art at LSU. His research has developed from doctoral studies on Byzantine and Romanesque wall painting to focus on medieval drawings, monumental programs, and the question of how images and ideas circulated in the Middle Ages. He is currently working on two book projects. The first focuses on wall paintings in the Baptistery of Parma, Italy, and the second, Monumental Decorations and the Medieval Perception of Space, investigates how ideas are translated into visual representations on a monumental scale. Before joining the art history faculty at LSU in 2017, Geymonat was a visiting professor at the University of Notre Dame. He has published on 13th- and 14th-century Venetian painting and sculpture, the Baptistery of Parma, and medieval drawings. His teaching covers the history of medieval art and architecture in Europe and the Mediterranean. Geymonat received his BA in art history from the Universitá di Torino in Turin, Italy, and his MA and PhD in art history from Princeton University.
