Professor Andrew Graciano publishes article in British Art Journal

Dr. Graciano’s (Art History) article “Observation, imitation and emulation in An Academy by Lamplight by Joseph Wright of Derby (1734-97)” in British Art Journal (vol. 14, no. 3) has recently appeared. In it, he argues that Wright’s painting is not simply a genre scene of an informal art academy, but an allegorical representation of the elements of academic art education—observation, imitation and emulation.
