Michelle Moseley-Christian received her Ph.D. with honors from the University of Kansas in 2007, specializing in the study of seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting. Other areas of study include the arts of northern Europe from 1400-1600, the arts of the Italian Renaissance, and intersections between East Asia and the early modern Netherlands in the visual arts. Her current research project investigates the complexities of informal portraits set in scenes of everyday life in seventeenth-century Holland and Flanders by artists such as Rembrandt, Adriaen Brouwer, and Jan Steen.
