Hannah De Moor (°1994) is a PhD candidate in Art History at Illuminare – Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Art (KU Leuven). Her research focuses on Netherlandish carved altarpieces in medieval Sweden, and is supervised by Professor Jan Van der Stock (Illuminare – KU Leuven) and Professor Carina Jacobsson (Uppsala University). The project is financially supported by the Chair for Medieval Sculpture in the Netherlands (Illuminare – KU Leuven); the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO); and the Petra och Karl Erik Hedborgs Stiftelse. In addition, Hannah is partly responsible for the day-to-day coordination of Illuminare.
Hannah completed a Master’s in Art History at the KU Leuven with a thesis on the altarpiece in Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Lombeek in 2016. During her studies, she held an internship at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels; and worked at M Leuven, KUNST Leuven and Illuminare, as a student employee. After her Master’s she received a PhD scholarship from the Chair for Medieval Sculpture in the Netherlands and contributed to the Digital Corpus of Flemish Retables project, in collaboration with the RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History in The Hague. The aim of that project was to disclose three documentation collections of 15th and 16th century carved altarpieces in images in order to create a Digital Corpus that is as complete as possible.
