Krystina Stermole, PhD
Venice Studio Arts Program
Dr. Krystina Stermole is an art historian specializing in the art of Renaissance Venice. She has been living in Venice since 2005, working on her research and teaching art history courses for study abroad programs offered through Boston University and her alma mater, Queen’s University at Kingston, Canada. Her current research explores the relationship between early-sixteenth-century Venetian art and the tumultuous War of the League of Cambrai (1509–17), which almost resulted in the destruction of the Venetian republic. Other interests include the use of the woodcut in Renaissance Italy, particularly in printed books, and the concepts of “high” and “low” in the visual culture of Renaissance Venice.
