Jamie Gabbarelli, a native of Assisi, Italy (and a dual Italian and British national), is a graduate of Oxford University, and holds an MA from the Warburg Institute in London, and a PhD in History of Art and Renaissance Studies from Yale University.

From 2015 to 2017 he was the Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral curatorial fellow in Old Master Prints at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Previously, he held curatorial fellowships at the British Museum (2009), the Yale University Art Gallery (2010–2013), and The Metropolitan Museum of Art (2014–2015).

He is currently the assistant curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, in Providence, Rhode Island. His research has focused on 16th-century Italian and Flemish printmaking, and the relationship between prints and other media. He has published articles on Renaissance printmaking in Print Quarterly, Delineavit & Sculpsit, the Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, and the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin. A forthcoming article will be published in the Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes in fall 2017. He has also contributed catalog entries to Francesco Vanni: Art in Late Renaissance Siena (Yale University Press: 2013), Marcantonio Raimondi, Raphael and the image multiplied (Manchester University Press: 2016), and The Chiaroscuro Woodcut in Renaissance Italy (LACMA: 2018).

Most recently, he curated the exhibition Sharing Images: Renaissance Prints into Maiolica and Bronze, opening at the National Gallery of Art in spring 2018, accompanied by a catalog he authored.
