A “Model” for Research
How do we develop compelling research projects that address significant new questions despite the familiarity of the materials with which we are working? In this presentation Nancy J. Troy unpacks her approach, using—as a case study—her own research on a widely exhibited full scale model of Piet Mondrian’s Paris studio.

Nancy J. Troy is the Victoria and Roger Sant Professor in Art, Emerita, at Stanford University and, during the current academic year, the Kress-Beinecke Professor at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts of the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. The recipient of numerous fellowships, former Editor-in-Chief of The Art Bulletin, she is the author of five scholarly books, including (with Ann Marguerite Tartsinis) Mondrian’s Dress: Yves Saint Laurent, Piet Mondrian, and Pop Art, forthcoming from MIT Press in October 2023.
