Carolina Mangone specializes in southern Renaissance and Baroque art. She is currently completing a book manuscript that examines how Gianlorenzo Bernini, the “Michelangelo of his age,” perpetuated his predecessor’s achievement in an epoch as deeply ambivalent about Michelangelo’s artistic exemplarity as it was wholly obsessed with his prestige and celebrity.

Mangone teaches courses on 15th-, 16th- and 17th-century southern European figural arts, architecture and material culture with a focus on concepts and practices of imitation and originality; medium specificity and inter-mediality; the arts of self-inscription (portraiture, biography, autobiography); the phenomenon of non-finish; the posthumous lives of early modern artists in image and text; and the practices and temporality of early Christian antiquarianism.
