Evelyn Lincoln is Professor of the History of Art & Architecture and Italian Studies at Brown University. Her first book, the Invention of the Italian Renaissance Printmaker (Yale, 2000) traced the careers of pictorial printmakers in Italy in the first century of its development. Brilliant Discourse. Pictures and Readers in Early Modern Rome (Yale, 2014) looks at the role played by the publication of illustrated technical manuals in forming networks of printers, publishers, artists and patrons, all of whom were also readers. Her research investigates knowledge networks formed through making and using pictures in the early modern world.
