Associate Professor of Italian Renaissance Art and Chair of the Department of Art History, New York University
Dennis Geronimus is an associate professor and chair of the department of art history at New York University. He specializes in Italian Renaissance art, with an emphasis on painting and graphic media of 15th- and 16th-century Tuscany. In 2004 he earned NYU's "Golden Dozen Award" for outstanding teaching. His publications include Piero di Cosimo: Visions Beautiful and Strange (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 2006) as well as articles and reviews in Burlington Magazine, Art Bulletin, Renaissance Quarterly, and Mitteilungen des Kunsthistorischen Institutes in Florenz. His work has been supported by fellowships and grants from the Clark Art Institute, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Council of Learned Societies, the Renaissance Society of America, the Warburg Institute in London, the Humanities Initiative (NYU), and most recently the Dutch University Institute for Art History in Florence, where he was a scholar-in-residence in 2014. His current research focuses on Piero di Cosimo's most precocious pupil, his unorthodox visual language most worthy of his master: the Florentine painter Jacopo da Pontormo. Professor Geronimus' book-in-progress, tentatively titled "Jacopo da Pontormo: Altered Grace, Human and Divine," is also to be published by Yale University Press.
