July 16, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Janice Simon is Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor of Art History in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia. In this post, she has taught courses on American art, Spirituality in Modern Art, Modern Photography, and on the films of Alfred Hitchcock since 1988. She received her MA and PhD (with Great Distinction) in Art History from the University of Michigan. She graduated from SUNY/Buffalo summa cum laude with a BA in Art History.

A specialist in American art, with a focus on 19th-century landscape painting and American art periodicals, she has published in the 19th-century art journals The Crayon and The Aldine, images of the forest interior in the Adirondacks and the White Mountains, on American Impressionism, the photographs of William J. Stillman, and on paintings by Sanford Gifford, Charles Burchfield, Martin J. Heade, and George Henry Hall, among others. The art of John F. Kensett has been of special interest since her master’s thesis, and she is author of Images of Contentment: John Frederick Kensett and the Connecticut Shore (Mattatuck Museum, 2001) and “Impressed in Memory: John Frederick Kensett’s Italian Scene” in Classic Ground: Mid Nineteenth Century American Painters and the Italian Encounter (Georgia Museum of Art, 2004).
