Meryl Bailey


Meryl Bailey (Ph.D. 2011) is Assistant Professor of Art History at Mills College. She recently completed a lengthy research project on the Venetian seventeenth-century painter Antonio Zanchi, and is currently preparing a manuscript on Venetian confraternal art after the Council of Trent. In the past academic year, she enjoyed working with Mills’ curators and librarians to incorporate the college’s collection of medieval and Renaissance prints and manuscript leaves into her teaching practice. Thanks in part to a Mellon grant, undergraduates in her Northern European Art course worked with the director of the Mills College Art Museum to curate a wonderful exhibition of northern Renaissance prints. When not teaching or writing, she can be found at the baseball field or the basketball court with son Gus (age 9).
