Dra. Julie Beckers
Julie Beckers left Belgium in 2006 for the UK to focus on a degree in History of Art and Visual Culture, which she obtained in 2010 from the University of Oxford. Her interests focus on Late Medieval and Early Modern Culture in Europe. Her thesis in Oxford examined 14th-century Florentine fresco cycles in San Miniato al Monte. She has a key interest in women and visual culture, historiography and iconography. She is currently working toward a PhD on female devotion and the visual arts in 15th century central Italy. She also writes for Studio Art International, a New York based magazine that produces exhibition and literary reviews.
