MY RESEARCH

My research aims to understand the image of the dragon in art; from ancient Egyptian, and Greco-Roman art, to Italian Renaissance art, and to Modern and contemporary fantastic art (imaginary realism). I am particularly interested in the motif of "the woman and the dragon" throughout time.

 DRAGONS IN ART

I am an art historian that specializes in Italian Renaissance art, ancient Greco-Roma and Egyptian art, and am now starting to form the uprising scholarly interest in Modern and Contemporary Fantastic art, as defined by the fantastic art fandom.  


I have studied the image of the dragon for the last 13 years, and her dissertation focused in ancient and early modern images of women with dragons.
