Student presents paper on Bosch at international congress

Pieter Broucke's student Nicole Conti '09, a history of art and architecture major, presented a paper on her thesis research on Hieronymus Bosch at the International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo. In her research, Conti provides a new interpretation for "The Temptation of Saint Antony" (c. 1500), one of Bosch's most enigmatic paintings. In addition, she identifies the monastery that commissioned the painting, in the process recreating its early history. Earlier this year, Conti published some preliminary findings of this research in the Collegiate Journal of Art.
