Robert Mayhew presents at the College Art Association annual conference in Los Angeles

Robert Mayhew, adjunct assistant professor of art in the Department of Art & Art History, presented a paper titled “Patterns and Preferences in the Consumption of Paintings on Paper, Cloth and Panel in Sixteenth-Century Antwerp” at the annual meeting of the College Art Association in Los Angeles on Feb. 25, 2012.

His paper, based on his archival research of house inventories recorded between 1528 and 1585, explored painting ownership, particularly no-longer-extant paintings on linen, and their important role in Antwerp’s successful art market during the sixteenth century.
