Hans J. Van Miegroet, Professor of Art and Art History and MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts

Hans J. Van Miegroet

Hans J. Van Miegroet was trained at the Higher Institute for Art History and Archaeology of the University of Ghent (Belgium) and received his Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  He is engaged in exploring Art & Markets at the interface of the humanities, social sciences, law and the sciences. He has adopted a scientific collaborative model to conducting research on emerging Art Markets, legal questions related to copyright and cultural heritage and visual culture as a commercial pursuit. This approach has made it possible to create, and sustain, a variety of new research strategies and modes of interpretation, attractive to scholars and students from the humanities, law, the natural sciences and the social sciences. His publications include books on Konrad Witz and Gerard David, and co-authored studies on Mapping Markets for European Paintings in the Early Modern Period (2006), “History of Art Markets,” in Handbook on the Economics of Art and Culture, Elsevier Science, Amsterdam-London-Tokyo, 2006, pp. 69-122; “The Antwerp-Mechelen Production and Export Complex,” (co-author Neil De Marchi), in Essays in Memory of John Michael Montias, Amsterdam, 2007, pp. 133-147; “Copies fantômes la culture imitative au début de l’époque moderne en Europe,” in L'estampe, un art multiple à la portée de tous, Villeneuve d’Ascq, 2008, pp. 47-64. “The Rise of Dealer-Auctioneers.
