Adam Sammut

Graduate Teaching Assistant

 

Adam Sammut studied History of Art and History at University College London. After several years working in museums and archives - including for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Lord Foster of Thames Bank - Adam began his PhD at the University of York under the supervision of Dr Cordula van Wyhe. His thesis looks at Rubens and the Dominican Church in Antwerp, its interior scheme conceived simultaneously as a front-line offensive against Protestant heresy and a showcase for Antwerp as Catholic "workshop of the world" and "new Jerusalem". Of particular focus is Caravaggio's Madonna of the Rosary (KHM Vienna), the Mysteries of the Rosary cycle, and Rubens' spectacular Wrath of Christ altarpiece today in Lyon.
