Personal Statement

His publications include "Fragonard's Allegories of Art" (J. Paul Getty Museum, 2007), a book that grew out of his doctoral dissertation, and that accompanied the exhibition "Consuming Passion:  Fragonard's Allegories of Love" (at the Getty and the Clark Museum of Art, in Williamstown, Mass), which he co-curated; and "Abstract Comics:   "The Anthology"  (Fantagraphics Books, 2009).  He is currently writing a book on the early years of the "Spider-Man" comic book, under contract with Rutgers University Press.  His longer-term projects involve studies of the capriccio tradition in art, and of theories of viewer reception.  He teaches courses on all these subjects, on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century art, and on the history of the nude.
