Biography

Dr. Mansour teaches courses on Baroque art, European architecture and urbanism, and on the visual culture of exploration and imperialism. His research focuses on Italian art of the late 16th and 17th centuries, and in particular on Rome, and on debates about the value and purpose of art in the early-modern period. He is writing a book on the Baroque nude, and on its return to artistic prominence after the Catholic Reformation. He is also working on a project (with Dr. Weisberg-Roberts) on the reception and representation of non-European diplomats in 17th century Europe, which explores the ways in which the Papacy used the visual arts to define its place in an increasingly global world. He has published essays on Papal portraiture, on Annibale Carracci’s Camerino Farnese, and on Papal art censorship. Before coming to HKU, he taught at the Courtauld Institute, Dartmouth College, the Catholic University of America, and the Pennsylvania State University, University Park.
