Curriculum Vitae

Anna Magnago Lampugnani studied Art History and Literature in Constance, Rome and Berlin. She received her PhD from the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin in 2018, with a dissertation on the theme of Furor and ideas of artistic inspiration in Early Modern Art, completed at the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome. In 2020, she published “Furor. Vorstellungen künstlerischer Eingebung in der Kunst der Frühen Neuzeit (Hirmer)”, for which she received the Hans-Janssen Prize of the Academy of Sciences in Göttingen. After a Junior Fellowship at the Kolleg-Forschergruppe BildEvidenz in Berlin, she worked as a Lecturer in Early Modern Art History first at the Ruhr-Universität in Bochum and then at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf. Since April 2023, she works as research assistant in the department headed by Prof. Dr. Tanja Michalsky. In her research, she deals with Art Theory as well as with frame and ornament phenomena, and with artistic exchange processes between Spain and Southern Italy in the Early Modern Period.
