Joseph Leo Koerner is the Victor S. Thomas Professor of History of Art and Architecture and a Senior Fellow of the Society of Fellows at Harvard University. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and raised there and in Vienna, he studied at Yale University (BA), Cambridge University (MA), University of Heidelberg, and University of California at Berkeley (MA and PhD). After three years at the Society of Fellows, Harvard University, he joined the Harvard faculty, where he was Professor of History of Art and Architecture until 1999. After holding professorships at the University of Frankfurt and University College London, in 2004 he moved to the Courtauld Institute of Art, where was Professor in the History of Art until 2007.

Professor Koerner has written extensively on German art, including The Moment of Self-Portraiture in German Renaissance Art, Caspar David Friedrich and the Subject of Landscape and The Reformation of the Image. His research interests and publication also extend to later periods, including the work of Paul Klee and Henry Koerner. For the BBC, he wrote and presented the three-part series, The Northern Renaissance and the feature-length special, Vienna - City of Dreams. On Hieronymus Bosch and early Netherlandish painting, he is currently completing two books: Hieronymus Bosch: Enemy Painting (Bross Lectures); and Parallel Lives: Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel.

This event was presented in collaboration with The University of Glasgow and the Association of Art Historians as part of the 36th Association of Art Historians Society Conference.  The lecture was held at Glasgow Cathedral.
