Hannah De Moor (°1994) is a PhD candidate in Art History at Illuminare – Centre for the Study of Medieval Art (KU Leuven). Her research, funded by the Chair for Medieval Sculpture in the Netherlands, focuses on South Netherlandish carved altarpieces in medieval Sweden, and is supervised by Professor Jan Van der Stock (Illuminare – KU Leuven) and Professor Carina Jacobsson (Uppsala University). Hannah is partly responsible for the day-to-day coordination of Illuminare, and takes care of the website, the social media, the library, and the documentation collection of the Centre.
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.
