  • Profile

    Sander Karst is a lecturer in the art history department. He is a specialist in the art of the early modern period, especially that of the Dutch and British seventeenth century. Karst was educated at Utrecht University, where he followed the two-year research master's programme Art History of the Low Countries in its European Context. Thanks to a grant from The Dutch Research Council (NWO) for young research talent, he was able to conduct his PhD research in Utrecht, where he also worked as a lecturer. In the summer of 2021, he defended his PhD thesis Painting in a country without painters: The Netherlandish contribution to the emergence of the British school of painting, 1520-1720.

    Besides teaching, Karst is preparing the publication of a trade edition of his dissertation. In terms of research, he is interested in questions concerning the early modern art market, migration, cultural exchange, patronage and the seventeenth-century concept of art.
