I’m an art history graduate from the Courtauld Institute of Art with an MA in 16th-17th century Netherlandish art. I now work as a fine art underwriter in London, where I live in flat that never heats properly. If you ever want to read/learn/chat about any specific artists, works, books or exhibitions, let me know. I don’t plan to go into art produced since 1990 or non Western art – these areas are too important to be butchered by my good intentions. But if you have anything to say about these – or any other – aspects of art and its history, do contact me. I’m always delighted to have guest posts.
How it all started: Before the Art.

INFORMATION ON IMAGES: Most of the pictures I use on Before the Art are not my own. However, each picture should have a link embedded, which means that if you click on an image you’ll be taken back to the site where I found it. Usually this means you’ll also find out a little (or a lot) more information on the subject you’re interested in. However, if you find an image without a link, please let me know. And if you find an image that you think should be taken down, let me know that as well.
