Sarah Lynch

Graduate Student

Sarah Lynch’s research focuses on the art and architecture of Italy and Central Europe from the 14th through the 17th century. Her current work examines the intersection of the Italian and Northern Renaissances, with a particular emphasis on the changing architecture of 16th-century Germany, Hungary, and the Czech lands, incorporating themes of adaptation, assimilation, imitation, and rejection of Italian artistic and theoretical models in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Sarah’s dissertation, “‘Ein Liebhaber aller freyen khünst:’ Bonifaz Wolmut and the Architecture of the European Renaissance,” addresses the meeting of and reaction to Italian architectural style and theory in 16th-century Prague and its ramifications across the broader region.
