Faculty member Erin Benay publishes third book

Erin Benay

Erin Benay, Associate Professor of Italian Renaissance and baroque art, published her third book—Italy by Way of India.

The book recovers peripheral narratives of image-making from the margins of cultural exchange between India and Italy during early modernity and promotes indigenous artists as central to the construction of Christian art in India and to the representation of India to Europe.

This book was supported by fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Association of Indian Studies.
