Elizabeth Gebauer studies early modern Northern European sculpture with Professor Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann. She received her B.A. in art history from the University of Southern California in 2007, and her M.A. from the University of California, Riverside, in 2011. Her master’s thesis considered 17th-century Dutch and Flemish tomb sculptures in medieval churches, and specifically compared secular post-Reformation tomb monuments in the North with Counter-Reformation monuments for Catholic clergy in the South. During the year before coming to Princeton, Elizabeth was the graduate intern in the Sculpture and Decorative Arts department at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. While at the Getty, she assisted the senior curator with the 2012 exhibition “Messerschmidt and Modernity” and the publication of its catalogue, and researched pieces in the permanent collection selected for a forthcoming catalogue of sculpture at the Getty.
