Lisa Pon specializes in early modern European art, architecture, and material culture, focusing on the mobilities of art, artistic authority and collaboration, and the Renaissance concept of copia or abundance. Her first book, Raphael, Dürer and Marcantoni Raimondi: Copying and the Italian Renaissance Print, was published with Yale University Press in 2004; Cambridge University Press published her most recent monograph, Printed Icon: Forlì’s Madonna of the Fire, in 2015; and she is co-editor or co-author of three additional volumes. Her articles have appeared in venues including Art Bulletin, Art History, Word & Image, Print Quarterly, Renaissance Studies, Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, Boletín del Museo del Prado, and Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.
With co-directors Tracy Cosgriff, Curtis Fletcher, Andreas Kratky and Erik Loyer, Pon heads the interdisciplinary research project to digitally reconstruct the library of Julius II, virtually returning the experience of Julius' books to their intended site in the Vatican Palace, the Stanza della Segnatura. This project has been awarded a National Endowment of the Humanities Digital Humanities Advancement grant for 2021-22.
